I pieced this during my retreat in March. It is one of three Christmas quilts that I have to quilt, so I will be glad to have it finished by the holidays. I quilted it with a holly and poinsettia echo panto, which I haven't used in a long time. I had forgotten how easy it was and how nice it looks. I used Magnifico thread for the top and bottom line in the bobbin. This is the second time I've used the Magnifico and I am really pleased with how it quilts and the visual appearance on the quilt. I think I will be buying more next time I visit a show and find it on sale!
For the back of this quilt, I used a piece of fossil fern from Lois' big collection of fossil fern, then I added four Christmas themed fat quarters on the side to make it wide enough. I think I am finally figuring out a good use for some of those novelty fat quarters I bought as an early quilter!
I will be binding this at my October retreat - there is a new double color technique that I would like to try. For now, I am happy to have 2 off the racks so far this month :)
