Lyn's Christmas Quilt

Lyn shared her beautifully finished quilt recently with all the ladies at the Quilting Luncheon.   She then bought it along to Needlework to show all the ladies there and it really is spectacular!  She has done the most beautiful work and the photos do not do it justice!!   This is of course based on the twelve days of Christmas!

The gorgeous "partridge in a pear tree" - centre block!!

And here we have 12 drummers drumming!!

And two turtle doves!!   Lyn has appliqued all these pieces by hand, assembled by hand, and quilted by hand!!  What a mammoth job to undertake and complete so beautifully!!   And her blanket stitching is so uniform and very close together - it looks like machine buttonhole!!  Thanks for sharing this gorgeous project with us Lyn!!
