Christmas Quilt Show entry

SewCal Gal is sponsoring a Christmas Quilt Show check out all the great quilts.

I purchased 12 FQ's at Cottonpickers Quilt Shop of the new Moda Northwoods Botanical from Holly Taylor. Using that fabric I designed my second EQ7 quilt, it's a smaller version of Simple Star Pattern by Paula Barnes available at Bonnie Blue Quilts.



Cottonpickers Quilt Shop has the full size version of this quilt.  I decided to downsize the quilt to 3" half square triangles, so it finished at 33" by 33".  I made up my Simple Star Wallhanging, and then completed my Christmas Train to Grandma's. Each block is 8" by 8" and the finished quilt will be 44" by 60".
 


The remaining pieces were made into the sides for my Christmas Tote.



Each side is 15" by 15"

I purchased some additional yardage to complete the borders, bindings and backings.

I hope you enjoyed my entries in the 2010 Christmas Quilt Show!!
