    Christmas wallhanging 'Up on the Housetop'

    I completed this quilt a few yrs ago but have never posted it on this board. Since Christmas is just around the corner I thought I would share this quilt. One of my favorite quilt designers is Nancy Halvorsen from Art to Heart. This is from one of her books. I had so much fun not only cutting the applique shapes from all the different fabrics but also loved appliqueing them on by hand. I love displaying this during the holidays as it just makes me smile.
    The quilt is entitled:
    'Up on the Rooftop', from 'Happy Holidays to You' by Art to Heart, Nancy Halvorsen
