First Chanukah quilt

imageI’ve never made a Chanukah quilt, so this is my first. I started it on January 1, which was the last day of Chanukah. I used the same fabric as the previous quilt. Someone asked me if it was hand dyed fabric. No, it’s commercial, and I wish I’d bought more of it. It’s almost all gone now. This is a 12″ x 12.” So I actually  have two quilts to bring to the 12 x 12 meeting this month. Rather than zigzagging the edges, I sewed around the edge in one continuous line, as part of the quilting. I’m also really happy with the quilting around the flames. As for the rest of the quilting, I prefer the previous quilt.
