Won't you please join me in the Christmas Quilt Show being hosted this year by Michele at Quilting Tutorials. Link up will be open from November 23 - 30 and rules also posted at this site.
I made this for the 12" Mini Club with Michele at Gone Stitchin' and the theme was 'Christmas' so our partner would have a gift for the season. Since my mini went to Australia, they are going into their Summer as we go into Winter; so I chose a modern, lighter take on 'field of holiday trees'.
I used two layers of Quilter's Dream Cotton batt in the Request Loft giving it more of a 'craft felt' feel - and makes for a nice hang for a mini. I used Sulky High Sheen thread to 1/4" organic straight stitch and Gutterman Sulky Metallic thread for the wavy stitch. A Sulky Ribbon Metallic thread was used to tie on tiny seed beads and glitter buttons. A fun plaid used for binding for a more country, summer look.
