And yet another poinsettia…

This all started when the owner of one of our local quilt shops, The Crafty Quilter, invited me to quilt one of these beautiful Hoffman Dream Big Holiday panels for the shop and in return she’d give me one. The first one is done (see a previous post), so now this is the second one completed and it’s mine! I made very few changes in the quilting and I added more bling in the form of either metallic or hologram thread. It’s very difficult to photograph bling to have it show.

I used two layers of batting; one of 80/20 and one of wool. The thread is mostly Sulky rayon but there’s a mix of Sulky and Wonderfil metallic and hologram and Wonderfil invisifil on the top and Wonderfil decobob or Superior Bottom Line in the bobbin. It’s quilted by me on my HQ Sweet Sixteen.

Even though we seldom put up any Christmas decorations before mid December, this one’s up & going to stay! Now I have only one more to do…..
