Anyway, as soon as she heard the details of the Challenge, an idea popped into her head, and this is the result. Her vision was a gift box bursting open with all sorts of sewing items flying out, and who wouldn't love a Christmas box just like this one?
This is a completely original design idea, with Google helping her to find a picture of a box that she could base her design on, and the gifts are all applique, embroidery, etc, all embellished with buttons. Here are a couple of close ups - I have to say, I love the books. Wonder why?
I can't remember the exact dimensions of the quilt, but I was there when Scrappy cut the background fabric, so I can assure you that it is well within the size restrictions somebody set for this challenge.
I think this is a brilliant entry.
