Christmas Tree Quilt

I love Christmas quilts and I've made 4 within the last year.  After my DIL saw the Christmas quilt gift that I made for our daughter for a bridal shower gift, she commented that she would love to have a Christmas quilt.  She never came out and asked for me to make one, so I didn't think much more about it.  Then in September she had a health scare and went through two surgeries in October and next week will be going through another treatment.  In late October I decided to make her a Christmas quilt as a "get well soon and we love you" quilt.

I met Chris (frecklemama) at a Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild meeting back in 2011 before we both went to Sewing Summit 2011.  In late November I mailed her two Christmas quilts to be quilted as she has a long arm quilting business.  I met up with Chris a few days ago and was amazed at her work.  I asked for an all over meander with a different stitch design in the trees.  Chris so came through with my request.  Thank you Chris!

The quilt is bound (thank you mom), washed and in the mail to our DIL.  I hope she gets lots of snuggling time with it with our three adorable grandsons during the holiday season.  We love you Conny!

  7. Oh my gosh! I LOVE this quilt. Is this something you've created or one you found elsewhere? I am very much crossing my fingers if you made it that you can give a quick tutorial or some instructions. I am too new to figure it out on my own. Thank you in advance for the help.

  8. What a great quilt! Best wishes to your DIL and family.
