One last quilt to quilt for 2016

A couple years back, several friends from my Wanabe Quilters group took on an old Alex Anderson pattern  Christmas Quilt.... This is the second one finished by Hilary Field, ( my own version is one  of my "Quilts in Waiting" stack in one of those zipped plastic bags)  This is a good size quilt 78 x 93 ....  The mixed  black and white fabrics and multi colored Christmas trees called for a simple quilt plan... I used silver thread.
I was looking for a way to keep quilting cost down but knew edge to edge quilting would NOT look great on this quilt so I sought  a simple no need to mark motif for the dozens of trees. Settled on this continuos line swirl.
