Celebrating the Season with a finish...

Started in August 2011,
here's my version of Bronwyn Hayes "Wish Quilt"
(hand-pieced & hand-embroidered)

I just sandwiched the quilt top yesterday evening, and have now started the hand-quilting.

The original pattern was totally red and white,
but I used some green fabrics, as well...

and also put in some additional appliques,
such as ...

holly leaves, cardinal birds, a big snowman button...

tiny stars...

and pine trees .

There may be some little "uggly ducks", here and there,
but that's me and I made it with all my heart,
the cherry on the (Xmas) cake being that my
youngest daughter came for lunch yesterday,
and immediately begged it for her home...
