Christmas Eve

May your celebration be from the heart!

I love these two pieced Log Cabin Christmas tree quilts, both made by my dear friend Darlene Shubert in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. The pattern is the same – one is homey and comforting in red, tan and forest green. The other has more of a victorian flair with the sparkle of tissue lame and “found” bits of un-used jewelry, pins, and single earrings. Original pattern designer (if other than Darlene) is unknown.

Antique Broken Star – Red, White, Green

I loved this quilt the moment I laid eyes on it – also purchased at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, 2006 – it has been beautifully hand quilted. The fabrics are worn, many of them splitting apart. I only display this treasured quilt during the Christmas season due to its fragile nature.
