Christmas…in July Quilts

It seems to be very popular have Christmas in July celebrations around here.

These two quilts were made to be raffled off in support of a campers association not far from here. The maker began with panels and added blocks to grow the quilts. I used the pantograph windswept as it gave a ribbon effect that also went well with both the top and the backing… almost all of my quilt makers like to have me trim their quilts for them which I do as a courtesy so that they are ready for binding.

On a side note, I lived most of my childhood in Winnipeg Manitoba, we had a cottage growing up. When we moved here people talked about going to camp…I envisioned them all in tents! Until I discovered that cottages are camps here and in the Fort Frances area they are cabins.
