Christmas Quilt Along - Part 2

After several side trips of dog issues, lunch, etc., I finally have this top finished enough to show.


Close-up of some of the fabrics.


The wider borders shown at the top will have some applique.  At first I thought I would do some raw edge applique but the pieces are rather small so it could be problematic.  I think I will go back and re-cut the applique for needleturn.   This quilt is for another of the Married One's friends who had a baby back in the spring.  The baby didn't need a quilt this summer so I figure I am right on schedule!

Blessings, Cathi
