Welcome back! We’re on Day Six of the 12 Days of Best Christmas Quilts Blog Tour and we’re thrilled with how well the first week went! The comments poured in and prizes have been shipped. We have more fantastic prizes and, of course, fantastic Best Christmas Quilts 2012 designers to visit with this week.
Today’s stop features Susan Emory and Christine Van Buskirk of Swirly Girls Design. Known for their modern approach to quilting, the Swirly Girls have produced several popular quilt patterns, designed the Circle Savvy Ruler for Creative Grids, and have two fabric lines with Michael Miller Fabrics and The Clubhouse Quilt Club.
The Swirly Girls designed Christmas Pie using quick-piecing and quick-applique techniques, and these bold blocks practically jump off the crisp white background of the quilt. Their use of modern Christmas fabrics from Michael Miller are bright and cheery–guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face!
You’ll find more quilts and products by Swirly Girls Design on their blog and website (not to mention a pie recipe at the bottom of their blog post!). If you leave a comment on the Swirly Girls Design blog by midnight MDT tonight – Monday, August 27 – you’ll be entered for a chance to win a bundle of free Christmas fabric from Michael Miller Fabrics, some of the same ones they used for Christmas Pie. Comments left on this blog will not be entered in the prize drawing.
Don’t forget to pick up your copy of Best Christmas Quilts 2012, on sale now at the Quilt and Sew Shop, and also available at your local quilt shop, bookstore or newsstand.
