Margaret and Nan have come up with this Amazing book "Christmas RAPPing Christmas Quilts Featuring Reverse Applique and Paper Piecing"

YOu can find the book on Amazon  or

I chose "Star of Wonder, Star of Light"

I truly enjoyed this pattern, I will say it made my abilities stretch, I am always up for a challenge and learning something new.

Always read the instructions first, will save a lot of time and energy...don't ask me how I know.

Using Island Batik Fabrics which I purchased online at Hancock's of Paducah (great prices and fast service, Aurifil Thread  great for blanket stitching.
