    Last year I made my daughter Darlene and her family a Countdown Quilt for Christmas. As a surprise for me, she entered it in the Deerfield Fair and I won a Blue Ribbon!

    First time to post a picture and it worked. The quilt was an adaption of a quilt from "Hearts A Plenty". The squares are envelopes with bells on the flaps and we placed ornaments in the envelopes for the grandkids to place on a tabletop tree. I did 24 squares because of the space where the quilt was going to hang. It proved to be a big hit with the grandkids!

    The quilt building is the only building I enjoy going into at the Deerfield fair and I missed it this year. Sorry I didn't get to see it in person.

    Thank you. Being new at this, it was more work than I thought it would be as it was only the 4th wall hanging quilt I'd made. The flaps were fussy cut and that took time. Learning as I go. It was fun to do for the family as Rudolph is their favorite Christmas movie. Couldn't get any better!
