Christmas in July

I have been waiting to post this until the Christmas in July reveal party at Wish Upon a Quilt.  I got quilt one of the store samples for this event.  I is a really whimsical quilt.  I believe that the pattern is Urban Cabin by Terry Atkinson.  I apologize for the strange picture of the whole quilt.  I was taking the picture at the last minute before I dropped the quilt off.  I will take a picture of it hanging in the store and post that on Saturday when I get back from the reveal.   
You can kind of see the texture in the picture, but you really can't see the designs themselves.  Cathy mentioned trees and snowflakes when we were talking about the quilting for this quilt.  I did a meander with loops and snowflakes in the blue background.  I love that Cathy chose such a not traditional color for the background of the quilt.  It really makes the quilt so much more fun!
In the large rectangle I did a tree with a star on top and then did a couple small border fills in the 2 L shaped spaces.
Here is a pictures of the trees that I quilted around the boarder of the quilt.  I purposely made them all different sizes.  I really like how the quilt turned out.
