I saw Christmas trees on a number of blogs and thought about this quilt I made long ago.
I have no digital pictures so I thought this might be a good time to get a few.
Wrong! It is very very gusty out and it would take many more strong clips to hold this quilt to the chain-link fence!
"Sunny Glade" was finished back in December of 1990.
I had seen a small hanging in a local craft store of Christmas trees and made a sketch. I drafted a seven inch block and used many scrappy fabrics. I had no plan for the blocks but I was not really interested in making something for Christmas. I had to play around with the blocks to get them organized into a quilt. The backing is turned to the front instead of binding.
I think this quilt was the one that started me keeping a quilt diary. It was also about this time that I joined a group of quilters. I have loved that group and learned much from the members. Sadly, there are few of us left as some move away and others can't get along. The remaining five, though make the occasional gathering a joy.
The little paper-pieced quilt on the window is used to keep the sun from fading the quilts.
There are a couple of Christmas trees on the quilt. My computer allows me to turn them in my file but for some reason, won't move them standing upright.
Blessings to you all throughout this holiday season.
