Last year I made a door quilt for our friend, Sue Mesinger. I call it a door quilt because it's 12 inches square and hangs on your door. Several months ago Sue wanted to know if I would make another one for her. I told her that I would. Being close to Christmas I decided to do one with a Christmas theme.
Coping the pattern that I used for my last barn quilt that I shipped to Illinois, I proceeded with picking out the colors that I would use for this one. I would also add details to the door quilt, to make it more Christmasy. Is that such a word?!
I then finished the board by painting the border. This border was painted silver to match the silver bells.
This quilt was a lot of fun to work on. It gave me a chance to hone my skills on detail painting and my first time using Folk Art paints. This quilt also got me into the Christmas spirit, even though it's still mild outside and no forecast of snow for, at least, another week or so.
I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
