Carol's "Tis The Season"

This was a fun variation-version of the quilt I showed you yesterday. I love the deep red fabrics in this interpretation by my client, Carol.

I loved putting the holly and berries in both of those red borders. They were exactly the right width for this whimsical treatment. I put pine boughs and pine cones in some of the squares, along with ribbon candy, and snowballs/Christmas tree bulbs ornaments, in others. I echoed around the embroidered words and the featured embroidery in the outer border. Then I filled around them with serpentine lines, which really made those un-quilted areas pop.

Happy Christmas, Carol! Thanks for letting me quilt this piece for you! Stunning!
