I found another Christmas quilt today. One I had forgotten about because it was on the bottom of a pile.
This was from a kit I bought at Quilts Etc. in Sandy, Utah. The fabrics are from a line designed by Robyn Pandolph. My girlfriend Beth quilted it for me, and I love the holly designs throughout the quilt. She even put little holly leaves inside the stop borders.
This really isn't a Christmas quilt, but it feels like one to me because of the red and green. I purchased this before I myself started quilting. Amish vendors used to come to a convention center in Salt Lake City once a year and sell their wares. They brought piles and piles of the most beautiful quilts all hand done by the Amish women of Lancaster County. I would go and stare at their workmanship, enthralled by the perfection of their tiny, uniform stitches. I don't hand quilt, so I especially appreciate the skill level of these talented women.
This is a very traditional Amish pattern.
