    This year's Christmas quilt

    I seem to have gotten into the habit of making one Christmas wall hanging every year. This year's was quite simple to piece. I had fun quilting it.

    The pattern was designed by Nancy Scott and published in the Winter 2017 issue of Quilter's World magazine

    Very cute and the quilting is excellent! I like that squiggly background fill behind the tree! Looks difficult.

    Beautiful. I love the soft background and the quilting just amplifies the simple design to perfection. I love it!

    Very well done. So much quilting. I love the simplicity of the blocks. The challenge and difficulty come in the quilting.

    What a great tree! The quilting certainly makes this quilt stand out. At first I did not realize that it was all half square triangles and I think it is your quilting that makes the eye not see that at first. Wonderful!
