The Advent of Christmas: Day 13

From the 2013 AZQG, Visions of Christmas symbolizes the sights of the season, with its vibrant blocks of applique. Wreaths, mittens, candy canes, stockings, gingerbread people, toys, and of course Santa, all invite us to sit and gaze awhile at this cheery quilt.

Eva notes, "Since Christmas is my favorite time of year, I wanted to make a quilt that conveyed the joy and excitement of the holiday. "  We think that Eva's done a spectacular job with her high contrast, pure colors.

A slightly cross-eyed Rudolph the red nosed reindeer sporting a giant green bow gives a very merry and whimsical touch. Eva quilted "Visions of Christmas" herself, and here you see how her echo quilting pattern gives Rudolph lots of personality and a energy.   He seems to almost pop right off the quilt.

Vivid solid color buttons work perfectly as tree ornaments placed among bric-a-brac used as garland.  We love the use of very creative embellishment which really makes this little tree sparkle.
