Twelve Quilts of Christmas 2016 – #12
Another Canadian contribution to the line-up.
Those sweet white flowers are beyond delightful on this very cheery red and white quilt. I love that the quiltmaker did not line up the twelve flowers, that dance around the outer of the two centre circles, like the numbers on a clock. That would have been way too stilted! The outer four circles are not perfect circles in their shape and I love the small anomalies in her execution of the flowers. The vines undulate as they do, not in perfect unison, but still in a most harmonious fashion. It works. It is not “perfect” and it still works. A lesson for us all!
This quilt was a gift from the Canadian Guild of Crafts to the Musée McCord Museum (in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) and it is the final quilt in my gift to you in this year’s Twelve Quilts of Christmas. I have been thrilled to put this together for you all for a fifth year. I hope you have enjoyed them. Let me know which one (or ones) was your favourite?
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
