My Christmas Quilts

I wanted to show you my Christmas quilts. I try to make a quilt or ornaments every year.  SewCalGal is having a Christmas quilt show and these are mine for the show.  These have all been done in the past few years.  I haven't done a Christmas quilt this year but I am working on the snowman quilt...I did do a small banner and Christmas card holder but no full size quilt. I want to make a big Christmas quilt but just haven't taken the time.  These are all wallhangings or tabletoppers....I hope you enjoy seeing them.

                        My Christmas Stars-all the stars are different and the quilt is all hand quilted.

This is called Texas Christmas.  My brother in law loves this quilt. I guess I'll have to either give it to him or make him one like it.

I made this several years ago. This is an Eleanor Burns pattern.  It was alot of fun.  I made 3 of these and gave two as gifts and kept one for myself.

I made this one along with a friend of mine.  This is from Country Woman magazine many years ago.  I was teaching my friend how to sew and make this little wallhanging at the same time.  We had alot of fun together doing it.

I made this one last year.  My sewing group all made items using the red work embroidery. I made this little wallhanging.  Others made bags,ornaments or little purses.  It was fun to see what non-quilters did with their sewing.

I did this one several years ago at the quilt shop I used to work at.  We had a lock in at the quilt shop and we brought food and all worked on this little quilt.  We all had a quilt by the next morning. 

These are little candle mats.   I put red or green candles in the middle of these on my coffee table.  I'll be decorating with these this week....

You just saw these a few weeks ago but I wanted to put them here too along with all my other Christmas quilts.  I finished these the last few months ago...

My little Joy banner.

This one is a Christmas card holder.

Ok, now you can go to  SewCalGal's site and look at everybody else's....have fun and enjoy the show.

So many beautiful projects. But I have to say those boots are just over the top, I LOVE that one.

Those are all really beautiful! The boot one is great.. I know a couple of men that would love that, too. I love the rough look of the Christmas tree one!!

So many cute projects! I love the cowboy boots. We live in Wyoming, and I decorate with a western theme, so that would fit in perfectly here :)
