Silent Night

Remember my little glimpse of Christmas sewing that I showed in my last post?  Well.....it is now finished and I LOVE it.  Let me present to you my Silent Night.


There was a lot of applique of those little notes....


.....and letters.....



.....and stars, but worth every stitch.


It is 52x63" and is a pattern from Seams and Dreams called Silent Night Quilt.

You did a great job on this finish. I am happy to see the notes are in the right places (I only hummed the first line) I might have to keep this in mind for future gifting - there are 3 music teachers in the family :)
