Last night I finished putting the hanging sleeve on the Christmas quilt - but I took these photos almost two weeks ago in the foyer on a sunnier day.
The poinsettia and swags I thought of appliqueing are quilted on instead. The Right Hand of Friendship stars got some echo lines. I used a gold colored thread instead of my usual matching or blending colors for all the quilting on the colored areas.
The Glorified Nine Patches are quilted with echoed curves and a small feather in the center square. The negative space is feathered on the inside of the swags, while the outer areas got lines 1/4 inch apart.
Somehow, I managed to get a couple of photos of the quilt on the floor without any cat models.
