Christmas Quilt Show entry

This is my entry for the Christmas Quilt Show.   The show is over at SewGalCal's blog.  It's a lot of  fun so go take a look.Edited:  This has been a busy week.  Saturday I was in Sue's Christmas Quiltalong and today the Christmas Quilt Show...Sew much fun...Sew little time.



It's called Christmas Town.  It is from a Piece o' Cake Designs.  I started it in 1999 and finished it in 2001.  It is needle turn applique ( my first applique project) and hand quilted.  There are lots of little fun embellishments on this quilt.  It was a lot of fun to make.

Merry Christmas, thanks for stopping by,

Caren,

Your Christmas quilt is beautiful. I do so love Piece O'Cake designs and you did an excellent job on this quilt. Beautiful prints and colors. I'm truly amazed this is your first applique quilt and you did needle turn. Excellent!

Is this two different patterns? I saw the reindeer and the sled pulling santa and almost bought it but it didn't have all the other patterns that you have in this wall hanging.
