Retro Wreaths

I'm delighted to have this quilt finished up, just in time for Christmas decorating!  I started it last fall, and have been working on it sporadically all year. 

It's hand appliqued, which is the main reason it took so long.  It also features Nice Quilting, rather than just quickie meandering.



The fabrics, the blocks and the "by the piece" quilting all make it feel vintage to me -- looks like a classic from my childhood Christmas memories.

Its beautiful! Is that a pieced border? Oh my heavens if it is.
Hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
