More ~ Urban Holiday Quilting

I will say this....I'm having so much fun on this quilt.

This quilt is really pushing my creativity to come up with a different quilting design for each ornament. 

I'm running out of idea's though with 8 more ornaments to go.


 I  pulled out my Christmas fabric today for some inspiration.
It did help for a few ornaments.


I love the little Christmas Tree!

 
The red ornament on the bottom left was made as I went and it's one of my favorites!  Love when that happens.

I'm getting so close to finishing and thanks to all your encouraging comments on this quilt!  All your comments really push me to keep plugging away and make this "crazy" quilting all worth it!!  

I just love you all!!!!!!

Don't forget to check wrapping paper. Always a good source for holiday decorations.

You have such a gift - the quilting on this is so beautiful. I would love to be able to do this.

I love how you took traditional holiday symbols & gave an organic interpetation of them. You could maybe add a few more snowflake on the aqua since no 2 are alike it wouldn't look repetitive.How about 2 bells ringing with a couple of music notes? I think this is the most fabulous contemporary quilt I have ever seen. I can't imagine that the quilt magazine won't fight over you get to put it on their cover.

Bethany said...

This is incredible! I LOVE it!

Dina said...

I'm really loving the ornaments. That was a brilliant idea. If you are running out of ideas... I don't remember seeing a snowman, or a Christmas star? Love the chunky snowflake, and I think a lacy one would be pretty too. Something that looks kind of snow globe-y? I'm sure you will fill the rest with beautiful quilting.

Emma said...

Your quilting is fabulous; I love the ornaments!

Ethne said...

Awesome
I must confess I really wasn't sure about new designs for each ornament, but this works so, so, stunningly, it makes me wonder why I was sceptical
Great work Jenny
