Mom's Christmas Quilt

I quilted most of this quilt for my Mom last fall.  Actually all of it except for the 1/2 inch piano keys on one side that I somehow neglected to quilt before I took it off my machine.  I hate when I realized that I missed something after the quilt is off the frame.  While you can see the quilting in person, I just could not get it to show in the pictures from the front. 
 I used a gold color of Glide Thread.  I know I have said it before but I LOVE Glide Thread.  It runs through the machine so wonderfully.  And I love that I can use the gold instead of running metallic and still get that shiny gold look.
 Yep, the back is beautiful.  You can see all that fancy quilting in the borders.  Swags and close piano keys.  My sister (also a quilter) and my Mom both really liked the back of the quilt.  It is so wonderful having 2 quilters in my family that appreciate my work.
