Loading the QAL Quilt

Hi all!

I found out some news and I am happy and surprised and a little frightened all at the same time!

A LQS of mine where I teach booked me to do a trunk show that I have done once before called Something From Nothing.  And I thought - no one is going to sign up!  Um I  was wrong!  It is sold out with people on the waiting list!  Wowzers!  I figure I should get my butt in gear and bring something new to the people so I grabbed my latest 2" square project and  decided to get it on the frame to show in a couple weeks.  Yep!  The scrappy Christmas Quilt!

You have no idea how happy I was to remember this HUGE chuck of Christmas flannel that I purchased about 10-11 years ago off the 50% off pile!  I bought the bolt of 10 meters - and finally it will find a home.

So I loaded the quilt backing up - after piecing the back of course.


And loaded the batting and top all ready to quilt.  Hmmm . . . . now how to quilt it!?  This will be a bed quilt so it cannot be too heavy something all over I think with the holly leaf border in the borders.  Hmmmm . . .

Any thoughts?

Am I crazy to want a new project done for this trunk show?

Your quilt turned out beautiful! When it comes to quilting the tops I am at a loss sorry I can't help you with any ideas.

Just do a holly leaf all over panto on it, that would look cool.
