Christmas in Nature, 47 x 48, by Joy Palmer

Joy writes, "I worked on this quilt for about a year and enjoyed picking fabrics out of my stash for it. I enjoy doing quilts by this designer, [McKenna Ryan ]. Of course, I added my own little touches."  This enchanting theme of Christmas in the country is beautifully done in intricate applique, with stockings hanging happily on the fence, and moose, elk, deer, ferrets, and squirrels standing in the snowdrifts, awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus.

The elk and the moose gaze in wonder as the Star of Bethlehem shines brightly in the sky. Tiny lighted windows give a charming effect to the little village, where everyone is nestled "all snug in their beds."

It's a cold winter's night in the mountains, but these snowmen appear to be having a real party ! They are joyously dancing and frolicking. Joy herself quilted this creation, and the pattern of the round pebbles provide the perfect background for the snowmen who are kicking up their heels.
