Christmas in July

This is my latest project. It is a kit I found at Keepsake Quilting. This little quilt should look great on the wall of a children's room at the Cancer Center. The background is made with blended squares on a fusible grid and then stitched. The gold trim is glittery gold piping. The rest of the tree is raw edge applique. I still have to quilt the top and add the finishing touches--bows, crystals, etc. Angels will grace the tree. It is going to be a fun wall quilt because it has very interesting items found in the dark squares.
