Quilters Newsletter Best Christmas Quilts Giveaway!

Quilters Newsletter Best Christmas Quilts 2012 issue is out on newsstands!  It is also available online here.

I have two projects featured in this issue and they are both really fun to sew! Sparkling Ornaments is a fun lap-sized quilt with lots of dimension.  I especially enjoyed adding trim to the ornaments and making three-dimensional berries with tiny yo-yos.  It was quilted by Deborah Norris.

I also designed a Winter Wonderland Table Runner.   Decorating Christmas trees with seed beads added a little extra sparkle!  Plus I used YLI's white pearl metallic thread for the quilting - really a nice product!

I used Aurifil thread for the piecing and applique and Warm and Natural batting from the Warm Company for both projects.

Robert Kaufman contributed 16 fun fat quarters comprised of fabrics that I used in both projects to give away!  And you will get a copy of the magazine Quilters Newsletter as well if you win!

Aren't they delicious?
