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!
