O Tannenbaum

I saw a paper cut on Pinterest and asked Nina  from Finland if she would share the pattern. She did within about one hour; what a nice lady! After making a couple of the paper Christmas trees I thought it would look lovely as a quilt too. I appliqued it with raw edges, then free motion quilted it. Here it is:

"O Tannenbaum"
I have entered this quilt int the 2011 Christmas Quilt Show, go and take a look at all the lovely creations.  
 
It will shortly be wrapped up and make its way to its new owner, hopefully in time for Christmas.

In the meantime, the third block of the Blogger's BOM was revealed. Take a look here.

I like the look of it so far. It's definitely going to be a baby quilt; mainly because of the fabrics I'm using but also because it won't make a very big. The blocks are only 8 " finished and there will be 13 block (I have an idea how to make three additional blocks, so I will have 16 blocks).

This week my quilt from the ALQS 6 arrived on my doorstep all the way from the US. Shawn made me this lovely quilt called Crazy Lizards. It's beautifully made and I love it.

She also made me this name card holder. Just what I needed for my handbag. There were also a couple of chocolate bars in the package, but sadly I can't show you any pictures of those as they are long gone!! Thanks very much Shawn, I really appreciate everything.






That's it for me for today. Over and out!

Love it! Your Christmas tree is a stunner! And the lizard quilt is so cool too! ;)

Das sieht so klasse aus, auch die Vorlage, so filigran. Das war sicher sehr schwierig, dieses Kunstwerk auf Stoff zu bringen. Und das quilten...da werde ich blaß vor Neid. Das kann ich leider nicht.

liebe Grüße

Liebe Vreni,
das ist ja traumhaft, wie Du den Tannenbaum appliziert hast, Hut ab!! Die Stoffe, die Du für den Sternenblock genommen hast, gefallen mir sehr gut. Einen wunderschönen Block hat Dir Shawn angefertigt.
Dieser Post ist sehr schön anzuschauen.
Dir weiterhin eine schöne Adventszeit und liebe Grüße
Roswitha

Hello! Interesting profile! My husband's work took us to Sao Paolo, Brasil for a few years where there is a huge expat group of very nice ladies. One lady ended up living in seven different countries and has finally settled in North Carolina refusing to move again! I really like the paper cut white tree against the red. It looks so fancifully festive! Thanks for sharing!
