Christmas Quilt Show 2010


I have entered this quilt in SewCalGal's Christmas Quilt Show 2010. If you go there you can follow links to other blogs that have entered quilts in this Quilt Show.

I stitched this quilt some years ago, and it is always the first one that comes up on my walls when preparing for Christmas. I have hung it up today, preparing for Bente and Hannes visit next weekend. It was used as an adventcalendar to hang packages on in the original pattern, but I just love it this way.

I love the stitcheries in it. It is a design from Jordbærstedet (a norwegian shop that do not exist anymore), so I guess this pattern is not available anymore.

I am looking forward to Christmas and I always start decorating the first sunday in advent.

Saying for today:

Christmas is not as much about
opening our presents
as opening our hearts.

Hi. I clicked on your photo and then zoomed in on it so I could see blocks closer. It is just beautiful. Each block is so well done and the colors just say "Christmas". Appreciate the value and truth of your quote. Thank you. LOve Lois

Den er kjempefin! Synd at Jordbærstedet ikke finnes lenger, de hadde mye energi og inspirasjon. Fint at du fikk lagd denne i alle fall. Den vil alltid være vakker! Ha en fin søndagskveld. Klem

I've always loved that little wallhanging! Those Advent candles are beautiful. I'm going to do a search to see if I can find something similar in English.
