Christmas quilt, I was alone this weekend and so this is what I started and finished.. no pattern, so lots of trial and ripping.. I think it still needs some punch, so I will embroider some ornaments on the borders.. one color in gold.. it is 50 x 60

Just lovely, are these the advent calendar cross stitch design from EMS Forum or other? Love the Santa panel too! Can't quite make out the lower left verbage..something with a Christmas Star...again, just lovely!

I think it is FABULOUS, can hardly believe you made that in one weekend, waaaauw.

by quilter124 17 Oct 2011

Love this project quilt that you made, it is wonderful even if you leave the numbers as it is.....
love the added embroideries around.....great job...

by cfidl 17 Oct 2011

A Weekend! gasp! You are talented and quick! It looks great. Is it too thick to embroider on top of, cause something connecting the squares would really pull it together. Like presents or bells. It would also make it 3D! Love it! christine Live Laugh Download Stitch!

mysew1325 by mysew1325 17 Oct 2011

that is a good idea.. I would need a mini design.. because the strips are 1 1/2 inch ..

Even if they overlapped - connected parts like chutes and ladders.

beautiful work

by noah 16 Oct 2011

wow this is excellent:):)hugs

by shirlener88 16 Oct 2011

Kathy, it is lovely - of coarse you might change the 18 & 17 and the added gold will make it pop. You do lovely work - it would have taken men a long itme to do all this. Never in a day.

Good eye there Shirlene

by pennifold 16 Oct 2011

I used that Santa panel too in my Advent quilt from last year and also the EMS cross-stitch numbers, they turned out great.

It's beautiful - you have done a wonderful job, except you have put the 18 in the wrong place, I hope you can undo it and resew!!!!

Love Chris

I can't access my Projects, but will have a look.

mysew1325 by mysew1325 16 Oct 2011

I did not even notice that.. I will fix it.. just one more rip and fix for the day.. I got that panel off ebay.. could not find anything any where else..

mysew1325 by mysew1325 16 Oct 2011

my hubby says to leave it .. it will make people look twice and wonder what that means.. I will think about it.

pennifold by pennifold 17 Oct 2011

Well, as for me I always do one square slightly awry. I figure that nothing is perfect other than God, so I always make a mistake (on purpose of course)! I wish that she had made 25 squares though and then it would have been easier to put together. Love Chris

mysew1325 by mysew1325 17 Oct 2011

yes that is for sure.. I don't know why she did not make a 25.. it was a hard design to make with only 24.. but then I had to shave down the left side to make them fit under the Santa.. I saw a picture in Keepsake quilting magazine that I used as a design layout..

by lidiad 16 Oct 2011

WOW!!!!!! It's fantastic!! Love it!

by capoodle 16 Oct 2011

It looks amazing and I like your layout. Don't think I would change anything. That's a large quilt - are you going to try to hang it?
