I'm sure you have heard me talk about my love of Christmas quilts over the years and this is the latest in the series of those classic red, green and cream lovelies that I will happily add to my stack of holiday quilts when we decorate our home next week.
Now I know that it doesn't have to be for Christmas only, this combination is a timeless classic all year around but somehow it is just a bit more perfect this time of the year for me.
… we sure had fun cutting kits in this wonderful little color combo for our recent sale. If you aren't on our newsletter list, be sure to get on it before our next holiday sale email at the end of this week! Go here to be added to our newsletter.
So here is Petite Fours ["little fours" in French because the baskets are little and they come arranged in fours… I know, not the most creative name in the world but what can I tell you? I'm a sucker for French, little baskets and a sucker for a good pastry reference!]
… little red baskets in several different prints set with both red and green nine patches in the sashing. Fabrics are from a variety of our recent lines including, Fresh Cottons, Mill House Inn, Whimsy and Patisserie.
…. little closeup to show the quilting.
… same quilt done out of our Buttercup collection [fabric due out in February 2011]. This one is a much more scrappy look since we made it from one of those mini-bundles of 1/8 yds.
Both samples were made by the super talented, amazing quilter, Sherri. Thanks Sherri
