I am so excited to have another pattern that was published in a magazine! Evergreens is a small hanging - 14 x 26 that is in Best Christmas Quilts from Quilters Newsletter.
I used the beautiful Seashore collection from Island Batik and the background batik actually has a little scallop design in it and I just free motion quilted the lines in it.
Would you believe that I actually took the photos last March! Notice how the grass hadn't even turned green yet. This would make a wonderful gift and could be used as a wall hanging or a table runner.
I just had to take a picture of the magazine.....my quilt is on page 62 and Best Christmas Quilts is available from Quilters Newsletter. There is even a short page on their website talking about my Evergreens quilt!I have really enjoyed having a couple quilts in magazines and I have other projects and things coming up.I do all of my piecing and free motion quilting on my 15-91 gear driven Singer sewing machine which only does a straight stitch. I do a free motion applique which for me is actually faster than straight stitching around every little piece. I like using batiks as they are tightly woven and don't fray much at all.I am very proud to have Evergreens published in Best Christmas Quilts!Next week I will be taking part in a blog hop for Suzy Webster's new book Folk Art Quilted Traditions.I'll be sharing my project with you on Monday, October 10th and here is a little sneak peek at what it will be. There will also be a giveaway!
