I was fortunate to meet and talk with Debbie Grifka of Esch House Quilts at the West Michigan Quilt Guild’s “Quilts on the Grand” show this fall. I bought her Evergreen bias quilt pattern, a very cool Christmas tree using bias tape to form the tree shape. I happened to find some great background fabric in my “stash” (I don’t even remember WHY I bought that fabric, it was years before I was quilting!) that will work fine. And I have enough that I may just do more than one of these, depending on how easy and quick it is to make!
Of course, I have to finish Bungle Jungle first. I did get it quilted today, just X’s all over with grey thread. I’m a bit undecided on how to do the border. I don’t do free-motion (yet). I would love to use my double (twin) needles and put blue and orange around it (it’s a grey solid border). Not sure yet, so it’s waiting.
Esch House Quilts and 4 other blogs are having a “Holiday Craft Bash” for the next 6 weeks. This is your invitation to pop in on their blogs and see what is happening! Lots of cool crafts to create for Christmas! Click on the picture below (if I managed to link it correctly) or go to: http://eschhousequilts.blogspot.com/ HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
