This quilt was a bit of a roller coaster. For those of you who have read my earlier post, I decided that the reindeer offered the best combination of possibility of success and being something that I could imagine hanging in my apartment.

Some of you may be aware that Quiltcon, the Quilt show of the Modern Quilt Guild, has been moved online. The pandemic has brought many terrible things, but for me, having mahor quilt shows and their classes online is a wonderful opportunity.

I started it as a practice making stars and intended it as a toddler quilt. I may have gotten a bit carried away.... One of the things… Continue reading Finished and Ready to Gift
