We had such a great time introducing you to some of our designers from Best Christmas Quilts 2012 and they were thrilled to see so many new faces on their blogs! We wanted to take this opportunity to give a shout-out to our other fabulous contributors from the issue:
Darlene Zimmerman’s Peppermint Kisses is the perfect addition to anyone’s home this year. This traditional pineapple block is super easy to piece with Darlene’s quick-corner technique. You can bring this quilt out for Christmas…and leave it out through Valentine’s Day!
Cozy Cabins by Carol Streif is sure to bring the warm comfort of Christmas where ever it goes. Hang this bed-size quilt on a big empty wall for decoration all year long, or keep it on the bed for snuggling on chilly winter nights. This tasteful quilt is bound to be the center of attention no matter how you decide to use it.
The seventh in a series, Tree of Life by Tina Curran was inspired by “The Tree of Life” (1909) by artist Gustav Klimt. This contemporary wall hanging is a fun twist on typical Christmas decor. Bias applique branches and a pieced border showcases Tina’s variety of scrappy fabrics.
These little ornaments go together quickly and bring joy to any part of the house. These would make perfect gifts for neighbors, co-workers, or your Secret Santa! Take advantage of two different styles: appliqued felt and broderie perse, we give you directions for both.
