Twelve Days of Christmas Quilts ! Day 7

It came upon us so quickly... but believe it or not, it's that time of year again: time for Twelve Days of Christmas Quilts ! We will feature an inspiring quilt each weekday, starting today and ending on Christmas Eve.  We wish you a very happy, healthy and creative holiday season.
Merry Christmas to all...

Simply Splendid by Ruth Davis


Simply Splendid by Ruth Davis won the Director's Award at this year's Springville (Utah) quilt show! While it is not necessarily a Christmas quilt, the colors and sparkle fit the season perfectly!! The 12 quilt blocks in this art piece are Disappearing Hourglass blocks; you can see a photo of the pieced quilt top at Ruthie Quilts, along with a photo showing her block construction. Ruth notes, "Setting it on point with wide-open spaces allowed me to let my machine quilting "shine".  I completed it using some computerized quilting, with micro quilting and pebbles done by hand."


Ruthie added couching with semi-metallic cream colored yarn, and she painted the "pebbles" with metallic paint.  This was followed by the application of hundreds of gems for additional sparkle.  We couldn't resist showing several photos of Ruth's outstanding quilting and embellishments! And for more details on technique, see the August's (2018) UFO post at Ruthie Quilts.
