The Bowling Tree

I have One More Finish to share.... and it is amazing that I kept it a secret....

I knew that my Mom would LOVE a Christmas Tree Quilt - but I was mean and made her wait till Christmas!

She got into bowling a few years ago - and found out she really likes it! and she even got my Dad playing... as long as he doesn't score better than her!

So I searched and searched and searched for bowling fabrics and finally found some that I really liked ( Thank you SpoonFlower designers)  and ta da!


These are cell phone photos - so look close - but aren't those fun?
She even picked out a few as her favorites


and I used the rest of the fabrics for a strippy background - so its really a two sided quilt



Sooooo does that count as two gifts???  ha ha!

That is SEW creative!! Who would thing to use something other than Christmas fabric for a Christmas tree? I mean, colors like the boys' quilts, sure. But, bowling?!?! LOVE!

Oh, wow! That turned out so cool, and it's so exciting to know someone else who uses Spoonflower fabric!!!

I LOVE that you were able to incorporate your mom's hobby, and I love that it isn't strongly Christmas colours so it can be used more of the year. Thanks for linking up with TGIFF!

A very fun Christmas gift! It turned out beautifully. I gifted my quilting sister some fun fabrics with a gingerbread theme from Spoonflower. They have some one of a kind themes and patterns. Congrats on a one of a kind quilt.

I love the smile on her face and the quilt. What a fun way to personalize her quilt! She'll be the envy of all of her teammates!
