Wish Quilt


I started stitching the Wish Quilt a couple of years ago. I finished this block with the piecing and applique. It got put aside and forgotten. I've been seeing this quilt done by so many around blogland, I didn't want to miss out, so I found the block and now I want to stitch more of this quilt. 

I also had the second block with Santa sleigh and reindeer started, but this one only had the row of flowers stitched. It's all good, this block is ready for me to start stitching right away. 

This quilting picture is "just because", I've been machine quilting for a customer and I'm loving how it's looking. 

I've got some Christmas gifts in the works, some I can show and some I can't show right now, I want to keep it a surprise for the recipient. 

Happy Quilting.

Well first off, the quilting you are doing for a customer is awesome! And secondly, your redwork Christmas block is so precious, and to think you get to make more! Makes me want to pull out old, unfinished embroidery projects!

I love all your beautiful red work.
I'm wondering what brand, type, and color of thread you use.

I thoroughly enjoyed making my Wish quilt, Wendy. I think it's my favorite!

Yours is going to be awesome. The stitching is impeccable and I just love your choice of fabrics. Enjoy the journey!

No wonder you want to get back to the Wish Quilt! It is simply precious. What is the product you are using to transfer the embroidery pattern? I keep thinking I might give this a try someday.

I have been seeing The Wish quilt in Blogland too. I finally went to Red Brolly and saved the different parts for the quilt. I just don't have time for a lot of embroidery right now.
