A bit of Christmas Magic…….

This quilt is designed by Kim Diehl and its called Christmas Magic, and is in her book the ‘Simple Seasons’ – I love this book and I love this quilt….. I have finally finished it.
Snowman Quilt (4)
I had it professionally quilted by Nat from ‘The Quilting Bug’ a while ago and all that needed doing to it was sewing all the buttons onto it. Red buttons for the berries and black buttons on the snowmen.
Here’s some of Nat’s fantastic quilting.
Lovely swirly swishes all around the border….

Luscious leaves in the corners…….

So this is another quilt I can have out for the Christmas season. Tra la la la lahhhhh!
There are a few of Kim’s quilts in her book that I want to make so it looks like I am going to have a busy year next year.
I have been busy with these
Mug Rugs for Gumnut girls (2) (Medium)
but I can’t show you what they are tho as they are Christmas presents.

Still a bit of Christmas sewing to do and its not far away ……eeeek!
Thanks so much to the lovely ladies who told me that my PayPal was behaving itself. I appreciate you doing that for me. The price of the postage for the Charm Squares is calculated into the price ……I couldn’t work it out any other way. One day I will be an expert at it all.
Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.
hugs to all……..Vicki ReinDeer

Vicki, I just love Kims designs and I just love your quilt. I have a picture of the version I did on my blog - but I fudged it slightly and made it a wee bit larger.
Keep on sewing, your doing great stuff.

Lovely quilt and lovely quilting.
I am sewing on the binding of my Christmas Blues that Nat quilted and I called in and saw the bestie machine the other day.
I am aiming to finish the Christmas dresden...very very soon. In fact the lack of my favorite TV programs may be a bonus tonight
