Christmas Dishes table quilt

September already?  This afternoon I am quilting the Christmas Dishes table quilt, which is a relief.  This is the first time I've made two quilts at once of the same pattern.  The Heritage Quilt Workshop version is pieced from bits of fabric from my mother's Grandmother's Christmas Quilts stash.  The Village Dry Goods version is for my favorite quilt fabric shop, and is more whimsical  The Dresden Plate design is very satisfying in a scrappy version.  This image is the second I've been able to create since delving into Electric Quilt.  This is going to be so much fun!  I know I still have to write the instructions, but this makes it possible to show you all the designs in my head long before I can get them into fabric.

We had a great time in West Yellowstone last week. It is delightful to get acquainted with new people, and the quilts we're doing this fall are fun to teach.  Check out the schedule and  register on line at

This next quilts are the two we are teaching in a single class:  the Wild Mountain Rose quilt followed by  the Baby Bear Paw, which uses the same techniques..
