Time Out for Christmas

Here are a few of the Christmas quilts I have made over the years. These are by no means all of them! I just have to visit other folks to take those pictures.

Mystery using Thimbleberries fabric

Pattern from a magazine



Not technically a Christmas quilt, but the colors work.


Jim Shore Collection on a Christmas block


Leftover block from A Star for All Seasons

Another mystery. The technique was "pull a strip out of a paper bag and sew it to another strip." I don't think I cheated. Lots of sewing.

Snowmen. I could have sold this ten times over.

Thimbleberries Christmas Apples. This is so old I don't even remember piecing it. Horrors! I am now working on the binding, holding to my New Year's resolution #1.

Log Cabin Christmas Tree made in a class when I was new to quilting. Our cat ripped off a few of the bells on the ribbons, at least 10 years ago. I still have those bells...

A Moda panel. My friend Joann and I used cute buttons to embellish. Hers is still unfinished...

Kyle's big boy quilt. This is what kept me busy before Christmas. I had to fedex it to get it to Santa for delivery. Kyle picked out the space shuttle fabric, the monkey fabric and the solid blue which he said, "will go real nice with the other fabric Gramma." He's 3. I filled in with the soccer and star fabrics.
Grandchildren will put the kabosh on whatever project you've got on the table, because we can always find a reason to make another quilt for them, don't you agree?
