Christmas Quilts

I never really thought I'd make a quilt especially for Christmas, but I guess when you quilt for 25 years you end up with a few for various holidays throughout the year. 
I haven't actually decorated mush yet, but did get my harvest quilts down and most of the winter/Christmas quilts up. I think it helps insulate the house from the cold too! LOL

Here they are waiting for placement. 
Here are some smaller pieces, gifts, swaps and woolies waiting for the perfect place to shine this winter.
 My favorites are the ones that are predominately red and green.  This turkey tracks was a challenging one to make, but I did 3 blocks a month for several months so it didn't get so tedious and the set in seams didn't drive me to drink! (or quit!)
 This one is a beauty, in a Need'l Love book. My first and only time doing Hari Walner's machine trapunto. Quilted by my friend Kathy in Ohio.
 I usually have this hanging on my banister but this year I chose to hang it in my room so I can dream about it every night before I go to bed.
 This is Wear Warm Clothes by Country Threads. An oldie but goodie.
 I think the basket quilt is by Cheri Payne. I made this one eons ago in 2000!
 The twelve Days of Christmas in wool by Cheri Payne. 
 A crib quilt reproduced by one owned by the Aurora colony historic museum. (or ancestor)
Patriotic Santa by Joined at the Hip. 


I know many of you have seen these December after December..... sorry. I'll guess I'll need to make some new ones! LOL

Have a great week!

  1. So pretty. Insulation factor is what I call my stash! I love to pull my holiday and seasonal quilts out. When MIL was still living I would change the quilts in her room so that she could have some sense of the changing seasons. And her sitters enjoyed them.

  9. Your holiday quilts bring smiles! Liked seeing your Wear Warm Clothes quilt - a bunch of us did this one years ago - we each chose a particular block and made 12 - exchanged with each other and we all ended up with a complete quilt - great fun and lots of memories.

  13. I enjoy seeing the Christmas quilts year after year so keep on doing it. My favorite is the red, green, and cheddar Love Apple quilt. The trapunto makes it very special. I haven't made a new Christmas quilt this year that I can remember. And I haven't put the quilts out yet. I have a cold and just don't feel like it.

  36. Thank you for the Christmas quilt showing! I love them all! I still want to make Wear Warm Clothes one of these days!

    I love your stenciling on your wall! I had that very same pattern on my walls in my first house. What a chore it was to do, but I loved it when it was done. I was sorry to leave it behind when I moved. I still miss it and that was 2 or 3 houses ago!
