Christmas Baltimore Album

quilts

I appliquéd this Christmas quilt last year – I put it on the quilting frame last November and I feel like I have barely worked on it since.  Here and there, 30 minutes here, 15 minutes there – 90 hours later and 10 months later I finally see the last border as I gave the quilting frame a roll down this evening!  The end is in sight thank goodness.  I really want to put it out for Christmas this year as a nice decoration.

This is what is left to finish:

An angle of the whole width and length left to do:

For those that do not know the quilt pattern is called “Christmas Memories” and it is from Apple Blossom Quilts by Connie Sue Haidle  follow the links on the blue highlighted words for information on it if you are interested.

    that is how I like to work on some of my quilts, just a little at a time and pretty soon they are done. That is a beautiful quilt. You are probably already planning what will go on the frame next.

    Karen, first off I have to tell you how much we enjoyed traveling with you this summer. What a beautiful country we have.
    You guys photography is A-1 ! ! !
    Hubby and I looked forward to each post. Thanks for the ride-along.

    Now, I have to comment on your quilt frame. I have never seen such a thread/needle dish attachment. How handy is this? Attractive and utilitarian.
    I’ve forwarded your link to a hand-quilting friend of mine, she puts in lots of hours at her frame.

    Again, thanks for “Quilts . . . .etc.”

    Hugs & ???s,
    Gerry

    What a wonderful feeling to be near the end of making something so lovely. You will really enjoy using this in December and hopefully for many more to come.
