"Christmas Rose" from Althea

 

I designed and made this quilt for the donation quilt for the Pioneer Area Quilt Guild.  It is 84" x 104" it is made from all cotton materials - machine appliqué and machine quilted.  The guild paid for it to be machine quilted.

Thank you - I had fun making this quilt - but I can tell you I still pull my hair out when I look at it... I worked so hard on this quilt as it was going out of my family... not that I don't work hard on them too - I know that whomever gets it will enjoy it - it is large enough to go on a queen size bed and hang over on the sides.  I think it would lay on top of a KIng.  

I enjoyed doing this for my guild - i was honored that they asked me!  

I learned a lot about long arm quilters too - I respect them a lot for the work they do!

Such a beautiful quilt and lovely design! I especially like the four corner rosebuds with the open rose and rose bud combo in the center. The overall red-green combo is really nice. I can see why the guild chose you to make this quilt. How generous you have been with both time and talent.
