Signs of Christmas


My longarmer, Terry Whitman is super busy so I will wait till the new year to have it quilted.

I added a few 'creative freedoms' where I had cut the blocks too small

 I think it just adds to the interest.

The machine stitches at the intersections worked out well.

Just in time to hang it for the festive season!!

Our guild is on the 'flange' kick right now...

...... this strip of black is for them!!

I think I have been bitten by the embroidery bug..

What to stitch next??



  1. It turned out really nice - and just in time for Christmas. You know red is not my favourite but I would take this in a heart beat.

    1. I like it but can't wait to see Shirley's in Green with some red,too. Tracey and I must be influencing you with our red quilts!!

  2. The addition of those half-square triangles really makes the embroidery pop. Lovely job! I have a great pattern that is a set of mice quilting if you want it for your next embroidery. I've had the pattern for ages and tried to find it on the internet so you could have a look, but can't find it there.

    1. I will have to take you up on that offer, Brenda!! I think I have seen those mice and thought they were adorable!!

    2. Are you in Weyburn any time soon? If so, you could pick them up. If not, are you on Facebook? You could just message me your address and I could pop them in the mail. Either works for me.


Thank you for reading and hope your enjoyed!!
