A new gift idea for 2010. We have created this simple Christmas Kitchen consisting of apron, towel and pot holder and we included as a bonus, holiday coasters. The pattern is simple and a wonderful gift to make, created with our famous poinsettia. The pattern is inexpensive and so are the materials needed to make this delightful holiday specialty.
This pattern has received "First Place" and "Best of Lot" awards by Deanna Stevens at a County Fair in Beatrice, Nebraska. Deanna was the pattern tester for this pattern.
Christmas Kitchen is suitable for advanced beginners through to the advanced quilter. It has full detailed instructions for two styles of applique, free-motion & blanket stitch and two sizes of templates with helpful alternatives and ideas.
