Double Nine Patch - Meowry Christmas! by Nancy Landon, quilted by Karolyn Nubin Jensen


This Double Nine Patch quilt was inspired by a magazine photo of an antique quilt. There are 354 little 3" 9-patch blocks in the quilt, which was beautifully quilted by Karolyn Nubin Jensen. Nancy Landon says, "I saw a picture of the original quilt in a McCall's magazine and knew it was perfect for using my stash of 1800's "cat" shirtings." (The light colored prints within the nine patch blocks have line drawings of cats.)

Midnight Snow by Lisa Chin (Salt Lake City, Utah)


Lisa explains, "[This is] an experiment in hand cut snowflakes fused on to hand-dyed fabric."  Doesn't it look like fun to cut out all those pretty forms?  We really admire the variety of snowflakes that Lisa has created on this pretty appliqued quilt !

Close-up, Midnight Snow


The delicate and intricate structure of snow crystals requires a lot of  precise machine stitching, as yu can see in this close-up. Even the background quilting is done in the symmetrical shapes of snowflakes, which adds a nice coordinating design element.
