MY HAPPY CHRISTMAS QUILT


Thought I would post this quilt photo. This will be featured in my new book that covers story quilts and "creativity". If you are feeling like you are "in the box" just wait and my new book will tell you how to "get out of the box and create a story quilt about YOU and who you love."
note- the Hoochy Mama borders give this color and personality. I love borders with these.
The entire background is beaded by hand...it took me months and many many hours to get each bead sewn on and knotted in the middle layer. But it is a colorful and happy quilt about the joy of Christmas day.

Wow Mary Lou, this quilt is absolutely gorgeous. The detail is amazing. Love the smiling baby Jesus and the happy sheep! It gave me a big smile.

Just beautiful Mary Lou, your creativity is a great thing to share with us all.

May this new book reflect all that you do and share with us.

Thanks!

Gee, Mary Lou
Your Christmas Quilt is absolutely wonderful! From the precious little ornaments on the tree to all of the little ones all around. And I love the happy Nativity Scene! Will be looking forward to your new book!
Hoochy Holiday Hugs,

That background is wonderful. I thought it was a dotted fabric at first. Till I read that you beaded it. OMG that's great. Love the quilt and can't wait to see the book.
