2012 CHRISTMAS QUILT SHOW


*
*
*
This year I decided to do something a little different for my entry.
*


*
This pillow pattern was presented to a group of quilters/crafters as part of hop
(see my previous post...there's a giveaway there!)
*

*
I had so much free reign with it and added my own flare through FMQ in the sky with lots of swirling movement and on many of the houses with texture and details.
*
*
My ghostly snowman could be from winter's past.
*

*
Houses have been appliqued with Santas and wreaths for added festive flavour.
*
*
See the icicles hanging from the window panes? Brrrrr
*
*
I added sparkling lights to 2 of the houses with more FMQ.
*
It's a wonderful pattern, very easy to do and can be changed up to be personalized in so many ways.
Why not link up your seasonal/holiday project and join the fun at the 
2012 Christmas Quilt Show.

Oh yes, just in case you're interested...there's Prizes!!!
Just sayin'  ;O)
