Christmas Ensemble 2018 by Suzanne Hillestad (Provo, Utah, U.S.A.), quilted by Melissa Kelly of Sew Shabby Quilting


Suzanne Hillestad says,  "An autumn pattern was the inspiration for this quilt.  I changed the colors to black and red, paper pieced the poinsettias and added the vines, leaves, and holly berries. This will be donated to the Festival of Trees Quilt Auction."


The beautiful quilting was done by Melissa Kelly, who used wool batting to give it the trapunto look.
As shown below, veins were quilted onto the holly leaves, while the black border was quilted in an overall swirls design. The quilted loops within the large black triangles are the perfect touch.
