Christmas Forest and Tree Trims 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Nice tablecloth rather than a quilt, though a lot of space for the stains to show … a reminder that I must find our Christmas tablecloth with all the memories of Christmas past stained into the fabric!

I am not going to pick a favourite this week … I like them all. A very interesting mixture of designs.
