And to All a Good Night by Sue Garman

From the Sue Garman exhibit in Houston, Texas, the description card states, " Crisp wintry snow and a starry night are the perfect setting for snowmen, angels, and Santa with his tiny reindeer! This quilt brings sheer delight for years to come. And to All a Good Night is made of a long applique panel, an array of both Four Patch Evening Star blocks, and extended Nine Patch blocks, and a set of borders.

Close-up And To All a Good Night

Here's a close-up of the applique block, with an enchanting depiction of a snowy night, complete with evergreens and tiny houses. Reindeer fly through the sparkling sky, while a little angel and bunny add extra interest to this landscape scene done in folk-art motif. Sue's delightful work is machine pieced, hand-appliqued and hand-quilted.

Joyful Poinsettias by Kalico Kut-Ups (Utah Quilt Guild), quilted by Carol Rossen


What’s more cheerful during the holidays than a big pot of Poinsettias? How about Dresden Plate poinsettias with button centers and color tinted candy cane stems?  This red and white quilt makes us smile. It combines pieced Polar Bear Paw blocks with Dresden plates and redwork embroidery.
