If you've been following my blog for any length of time, you may recall my stated wish to have enough Christmas quilts to replace the everyday quilts on the upstairs landing.
Due to the large size of the lower quilt, I've achieved that goal, though that does not mean I will stop making Christmas quilts, oh no! I have several more in mind.
By the way, the quilt on the upper left is from the patten Brand New Day from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. The lower quilt is also from a Miss Rosie pattern but I can't remember the name. The quilt on the upper right is a log cabin, made without a pattern.
Christmas Stars and Christmas Ribbons (from pattern Ruby's Ribbon Box by Little Louise Designs) are in the living room.
And my novice effort with wool is hanging nearby.
And one of my earliest quilts is on our bed. The pattern was in an issue of American Patchwork & Quilting about 10 years ago. I made this back before I knew about longarm quilters for hire so I hand quilted it - a long term project!
All of the stars are the same snowflake print and the backgrounds are very, very scrappy. At the time, I did not have the extensive stash I have now, so I had to buy a lot of fat quarters and quarter yard cuts to get the scrappy look. I used a lot of Hoffman prints because at the time, they were making the most gorgeous prints with flowers and leaves. I had a lot left over so I made a smaller version for my mother, She puts her quilt on the back of a red couch in her family room during the Christmas season.
No tree yet but it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
