Blogger's Quilt Festival-Fall 2012

Linking up with Amy's Creative Blogger's Quilt Festival, thanks Amy for another opportunity to visit so many beautiful quilts.  I really haven't had much time for months to work on quilting, except for simple designs.  I just moved on Monday (whew), just got cable/intranet service this afternoon.  This quilt is an attempt at some modern piecing, just using one focus fabric, a favorite vintage Santa print and your basic kona white.
I used an overall pantograph quilting desing of santa face and snowflakes and quilted in white thread and used a solid red kona backing and red binding machine stitched down, this ended up to be a twin size.  I really like the quilting design, it quilted up so nice.
This is what it looked like on the machine.
At first I thought I didn't want to show a Christmas Quilt, but then when I went to get my Halloween candy last night it had all been moved to the sale area and the candy canes boxes were all lined up.  So hopefully no one minds seeing Christmas now, I think it's still early but it will be here before we know it.  Thank you for stopping by and taking a "peek". 
Hugs, Michelle
