This is a row quilt made from the pattern "Christmas Joy Sampler" from Love of Quilting Jan/Feb 1999. My friend started making it and when she heard I wanted to make a row quilt she shared the pattern with me. We bought our fabrics at the Houston Quilt Show in 2009 and 2010. The quilt was getting very large so I left out the row of baskets. I love the basic quilt because of all the opportunity it presented for machine embroidery and embellishing. The backing was quite an engineering feat because of the size. I used a technique I saw at the Houston Quilt Show for finishing instead of the binding. This quilt is going to be a family heirloom! Keep up the good work.
