Kendra says about her quilt:
This Christmas quilt is my first quilt. It took me three months. It is hand quilted. I
didn't work on it everyday but I could I have finished sooner if I had. I am very
proud of it. I am 44 and live in Arkansas.
That is a Santa in the middle. I stitched him in detail which is pretty up close but
you cannot tell in the picture. I found the pillow type blocks at Walmart. It is made with
Christmas fabrics. I love Christmas and wanted my first quilt to be a Christmas one. My
mother in law got me started. She makes log cabin quilts. I had no pattern so I just
measured her blocks and strips on a quilt she had given me and started. I like to do
things by myself so I never asked her for help. I thought I it came out pretty good!!
It did take awhile to get the quilting part done. I mean those tiny stitches and my
fingers! Ouch! I read many books and tips and hints and did ask for some help from some
online quilters. My husband built me an oak quilting frame. It is a king size quilt.
Anyway, I have material for 9 more Christmas quilts, all different.
A quilting friend, Kendra
