Victoria sent me this photo of both of us holding our exchange quilts. I am on the left. Victoria is holding the quilt I made for her. The round "Christmas ball" is made from velvet scraps. This is the first, and probably last, quilt I have made using embellishments. I had total fun picking fabric and creating the feeling of an old fashioned Christmas tree. I hand quilted it using green pearl cotton. It was fun to make a real Christmas quilt.
