Preparing for Christmas

#1 Dino over at Musings of a Dinosaur has been showing off his beautiful Menorahs! So I thought I would show you a few of my Christmas quilts. This one is called "Preparing for Christmas". The log cabin pattern has the colors arranged to form the tree. I left the tree undecorated on purpose. I had Peg (of Peg's Quality Quilting in Iowa) quilt the wall hanging, 47" X 57", by "writing" in gold metalic thread the Christmas story from the Bible (Luke Chapter 2).
In these "detail" shots you can see the "writing".

This is absolutely beautiful R, you are so talented with your quilting (and your surgery too, I'm sure LOL). I think this is a great idea and I am enjoying Dino's posts too.
How many do you have to show us?

How fabulous! I love how the center red square of the log cabins turn into tree decorations. Festive, warm, beautiful...

JMB, I only have three Christmas tree quilts. I gave away a Christmas wreath wall hanging quilt about 7 years ago. I do have some quilted stockings I can show too.

CA & JMb --thanks for the compliments.

Thanks, Dr Smak. Somehow your comment didn't get sent to me until today. Thank you.
