It's a Green Christmas Quilt

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas! Really, here it is. It's still snowing and yes, I'm over it.

But in my quest to catch up on sharing quilting pictures, we're going to start with some Christmas quilts!

p.s. I'm going through and sharing a majority of quilts I've working on these past six months or so, if I quilted for you and you don't want pictures of your quilt shared, please email me at rubybluequilts (at) gmail (dot) com, but I'd love to share them if I can!

Alrighty, back to the good stuff. Get ready for picture overload!
 Bobette made two of these Pine Tree Ridge quilt patterns (you'll see this one today and another tomorrow) and she wanted it quilted like Linda Hrcka at The Quilted Pineapple did on this post... Needless to say I was a little more than nervous to fill those large shoes! But I couldn't be happier with the results and I didn't want to give the quilts back! That's always a good sign I feel like I did my job to the best of my ability!

 Some of the details we kept the same, but Linda followed some fabric patterns in areas with her quilting and without the same fabric I couldn't make it exact, so we matched the feel of her quilt and improvised here and there while keeping the same charm.

 This quilt was probably one of the densest quilting jobs I had completed up to this point. I worked on this quilt for a few days and it's basically a lap size... But I'm so happy with the results who cares how long it took?!

 I was able to quilt over some of the wool applique and left some as is - it depended on how thick the wool was and whether it needed a quilting foundation or not due to the size of the pieces. I tried my best and made it count where it was needed.
Isn't it just magical? I had so much fun with this and you'll see the blue version tomorrow. It was a toss up of which quilt was the favorite. One was supposed to be a present and one was supposed to be a gift. I'm not sure if she was able to part with one!

Stop back tomorrow for more pictures!


  1. Great job! The density enhances each block and creates great dimension.

  2. Beautiful! Love what you did with the wool applique. I have my Kim Diehl top finished and still thinking about what it "needs"... maybe it needs you?
