Carolina Christmas mystery quilt version 2.0

In my previous posts I talked about restoring one of my favourite mystery quilts (Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Christmas from 2009) which had quilting thread popping all over the quilt and a corner of the binding chewed by one of my dogs.

Read about that here: https://dayspringquilter.blogspot.com/2020/11/restoration-underway.html  and

It took a couple of months of seam ripping while watching TV but I got it done!  I then added some larger borders and just finished requilting it.

I quilted it with a pantograph called "Esmerelda" which added some nice movement to the quilt.  I have yet to add the binding but here it is on the bed with a much larger drop to keep both of us warm!

I'm so happy to have it finished.

Until next time,

  1. This is stunning. Congratulations. Believe me, I was surprised when I read your name. My mother’s name was Marion Mavis Davidson but everyone knew her as Mavis. Her mother, Mabel was the quilter and my influencer.

    Again, this quilt is such a treasure.
