My Entry for the Christmas Quilt Show

Since I can’t enter my own Weekly Quilt Contests, I’m always thrilled when I have a quilt to enter in one of SewCalGal’s contests.


My entry for the 2011 Christmas Quilt Show contest, is my Christmas Ornaments wall hanging/table topper I made as a bonus block for our Celebrate Christmas Quilt-Along.


It’s available as a free download too. The ornaments block finishes at 12″ and the mini quilt at 19″. If you make the block/mini quilt, please share in the Flickr group… I’d love to see it.


I was told, in order to enter, I must include a photo of Milo in a Santa hat. I haven’t been able to find a hat small enough to fit him yet, so here he is with Santa.
