2011 Christmas Quilt Show entry

I have decided to enter my Cakewalk quilt into SewCalGal's Annual Christmas Quilt Show. 

Voting is Saturday December 3rd and Sunday December 4th!!!



This is a pattern I tested for Barbara Chojnacki of Six Gables Designs back in the spring.  The majority of the fabric is Robert Kaufman Holiday Flourish 3 by Peggy Toole. It's beautiful holiday fabric with gold embossing to give it a very rich look!!

I used EQ7 to help me to decided the fabric choices.





The pattern is made of 2 blocks that are rotated to get the desired look.


Garfield liked the quilt also.
