New Christmas Quilt



The center is completed and one of the side borders is on. Last night when my husband looked at it hanging on the design wall, he asked, "Does it have a name"?  Since my imagination at the present is stretched very thin, I could use some help. Besides helping me, you will be entitled to a free pattern when they are ready.

Kerry Green was the person who named the Winter Berry table runner. The second Saturday drawing for September will be here soon, and two names will be drawn for free patterns.  Then I have been looking through all of the fall pillows I have and will be giving one of them a way also. I don't want to be classified as a hoarder!

Abbie arrived in town from Ohio last eve.  One week from tomorrow will be her sisters wedding and she has come early to be a part of all of the last minute festivities.  She just gave me a list of all the restaurants she wants to eat at while she is here. :-)

  1. The appliqued vines kinda remind me of confetti, so perhaps you could name the quilt Celebration - which would also tie in to Christmas of course.

  17. Even though the suggestions are "local," I always appreciate your stories--an opportunity for your fans to learn more about you.
    This piece of art reminds me of the splendor of the mountains--the opportunity that you have to appreciate glorious nature, every single day...and a bit of a reminder of where your heart is this week!
    My suggestions:
    Wasatch Wonderland
    Cottonwood Canyons Christmas

    1. Crazy Quilter...who ever you might be....I guess I could be classified as one of those crazy quilters also. I feel very fortunate the glorious nature that surrounds me. I live less than a mile from the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon. Thank-you for the great suggestions.
