Christmas Quilt Show Entry by Shannon McClinchey

This entry to the Christmas Quilt Show comes from Shannon McClinchey, a non-blogger that has submitted her entry to SewCalGal via email.

Shannon shared:
The first one I made at a retreat as a Christmas gift for my sister, and did a little hand quilting in the corners, (the holly and berries) this last two are a mystery quilt that our guild did last year. Although not technically Christmas this is when I chose to display it as it is quite sparkly and christmasy (note: the sparkles come off EVERYWHERE!  Not sure that I would ever chose this fabric again, but I am quite proud of the quilting.



Beautiful quilts. I hope you enjoy seeing Shannons' quilts in the Christmas Quilt Show too!

Hi! I left an entry for my quilt on the Mr Linky thing, but I am not seeing it on the list.
I tried to enter again, but it said I already entered, maybe there is a delay in the posting...
I am a follower
I participated in the Christmas Quilt Along with Sue as well.
Could you let me know if my entry doesn't come up so I can try again?
Thanks for organizing the show and the prizes.
Take care, Leslie

Shannon, the Christmas quilt for your sister is lovely.
So many fabric lines are now adding blues to the Christmas fabrics that your second entry fits right in with a "wintery" theme. Well done!
