All Things Chrsitmas



Christmas is just around the corner, so I have been busy making a shop sample for The Country Yard
Designed by Gail Pan called " All Things Christmas". We used a range of fabrics by Primitive Gatherings called " Seasonal Little Gatherings" . I used Aurifil 12wt thread for the stitcheries.
You will see from the photo's I did very simple quilting, except for the 'curling ribbon' on the border, all the quilting was done using my walking foot.
Available as a kit for your convenience.

A few of the stitcheries.....................





Using the same fabric range, Kerryn made a Trio of Cushion's ( available as part of a class on the 6th November )

As you can see these are just tops, this photo was taken just after I had quilted them.....they are now in fact cushions!
If you would like to see these and more fabulous projects and you are in Northland next Saturday 27th please come on out the The Country Yard to join in with our annual exhibition. We have a quilt exhibit, challenge quilts, spot prizes, live music, yummy nibbles all set on a stunning property.
