|pin basting the layers|
I was quite hesitant to start the quilting but once I started it went very quickly.
The little stars were outline stitched with an X through the middle.
The bigger red stars was outlined stitched also, and I used the hera marker for the lines through the centre.
The background was quilted with random swirls and loops.
I decorated the tree with red thread and made clam shell shapes to look like garland. I don't it ended up looking like garland, but that's okay :)
This quilt was made from a beautiful kit I purchased in 2017 from Quilter's Nine Patch (which unfortunately closed due to covid, but still has a small online store). The pattern is in Kim Diehl's wonderful book called Simple Christmas Tidings.
This is my last finished quilt for 2021 and I'm so excited to finish it before midnight!
Linking up to One Monthly Goal.
Happy New Year!
