2011 Christmas Quilt Show

It's that time again - Darlene of Insights From SewCalGal is again hosting the 2011 Christmas Quilt Show


My Mom installed a small quilt hanger in her dining room aftter I made her a wall hanging when I first started quilting.  I'm slowly adding to her collection of wall quilts.  It's a great gift idea for the woman who has everything - LOL! 

A few years ago I decided she needed a Christmas wall hanging.  I decided to use a poinsettia fabric I had to do a little broderie perse applique.
Christmas Poinsettias- My Mom's gift

I used a black satin stitch around the edges and some rich gold-flecked fabrics. All of this was from stash as I recall.

Even the "Christmas paisley" has gold in it.  I love visting this quilt every year!
