one down .. one up .. one envelope

Yes, this quilt is coming down!
The trellis quilt to be stored away for the time being.
No year written on the backing, shame on me, but main
fabric is called "in the beginning"

This one must go up.
A good hand helping me to reach to the two nails up there!
So pleased to hang a new up on the wall. It is Kaffe Fassett fabrics and
 the quilt is called Chelsea, Pauline Smith made the pattern.
 It is in Kaffe`s book from 2007 "quilts in the sun".
The kit was bought from the Cotton Patch, almost the same year.

Check the perfect shaddow quilting on this one:
 Merete,using one of her long arm machines, is
the expert of the quilting :-)

SSCS Christmas present will fit into the envelope,
present for my new SSCS friend. I am sure the envelope already
 is up in the air over some mountains, over some some countries
and over the sea to find my friend  :-)
The SSCS is arranged this year too by Chookyblue, great swap :))
Happy Christmas Sewing to you all!  Hugs, Grethe xx

The trellis is a beautiful Spring Summer quilt. The Kaffe is like a Autumn Winter jewel. As much as I like Kaffe fabrics, I have trouble putting them altogether without them looking too busy. The kit idea is a good one. Great job Grethe.
