I was very excited to read that SewCal Gal is having a Christmas Quilt contest, you can read about it here. I had just finished two christmas quilts and thought that one of them would make a cute entry. I took my photos, cropped, sized, all that good stuff so I could post them here. Here is what I get from Blogger:
I have tried EVERYTHING to get it vertical. HELP ME!!!
It's called "Snow People Have lives, Too". If you turn your head to the side, the quilt tells a little story. Here is my DH's version: The snowman in the top is a poor pathetic guy, he meets someone, gets married but inevitably goofs off and makes her mad. In the final block, the snow woman is happy, she is with her child and they are getting ready for Christmas. To my DH it's obvious that she dumped the loser snowman.
Here is the second quilt I just finished. It's called "Audrey's Gift." One of my fellow guild member, Audrey, knowing my fondness for 1/2 square triangles, gifted me a box of them.. A box the size of a ream of paper STUFFED with them. It wouldn't seem that you could get much from a box that size, but so far I have made a bed-sized quilt, a small wall hanging (UFO :( still) and this one. I had a lot of fun combing through the squares and trying to come up with a color scheme.The borders are actually even -- my photo skills are NOT!
Check out the contest. There are some Fabulous prizes that will be given away.
