Bright Christmas by Tomie Lee, quilted by Brenda Cornell

Bright Christmas is a pattern designed by Linda Ambrosini for Hoffman California International Fabrics. Click here for a free PDF of this pattern and instructions (which is available as of this writing). As the designer explains, this Christmas tree is made of equilateral triangles (also known as 60 degree triangles) in various sizes. The original pattern is size 54x 66, and as Linda explains, "Some of the blocks are 8" finished size, and others are 4 smaller triangles sewn together to create the same size as the big triangle. Nesting the triangles together creates rows, which we quilters are great at sewing......"

Honorable Mention winner in the medium pieced quilts category, quiltmaker Tomie Lee writes, " I liked the Hoffman/Linda Ambrosini pattern, but not the the showcased fabrics. [So] I used scraps from my previous Christmas projects and added crystals." We think Tomie's creation turned out beautifully, and the Brenda Cornell's professional quilting of the poinsettia petals pattern with gold thread gives this work a very festive look !
