Red and green

By Janet Treen
This is a  quilt I like to hang on  the lounge wall at Christmas and in fact any time of the year. I have no concerns about fading because I have a tinted film on the windows to block out UV rays.
It was made in 2006 and is a Piece O' Cake pattern from their book, Once Upon A Season. The quilt does hand straight and square, I just took this photo at an awkward angle.
It's hand appliqued and hand quilted with Quilters Dream cotton, the thinnest unbleached weight.
I used a floral red, green and cream backing so that the stitches wouldn't be so obvious. The reason for that being the different coloured quilting cottons I used to match the fabrics.
Happy Holidays to you all.
