Christmas Quilts

I would like to share with you some of the Christmas quilts I have displayed around the house.

My very first quilt was was a Christmas Irish Chain Lap Quilt – created in 2002.

I have Reindeer in my kitchen:

With a matching table runner:

Before I became a quilt addict I loved to do counted cross stitch.  The cross stitch on this wall hanging was stitched on a road trip to Arizona years ago:

Last year I paper pieced this tree skirt for the small grandchild-friendly tree we have in the living room.  What’s wrong with this quilt?  I haven’t quilted it yet!  It’s on the to-do list but I still wanted to use it.

You might notice on the tree above a couple of counted cross stitch ornaments – soft, unbreakable and grandchild-friendly.

This is a much larger tree skirt and is under the big tree in the dining room window.  Beautiful fabric but a very difficult pattern made this a love/hate project. I had never done a Y-seams or applique when I made this tree skirt.

I love this table topper quilt below.  It is very scrappy and many of the blue fabrics can be seen in the Orca Bay Blue String Blocks.  I love all the buttons too (although you have to watch where you set down your wine glass ;-)).

Last, but not least, is this hand applique Christmas Tree wall hanging made last year:

It is such fun to decorate the house with the memories each of these quilts brings to me each year.  I hope you are enjoying all the blessings of this season and are making new wonderful memories!
