My Quilt Group Christmas Party

Ah, Christmas parties, I love them.....We had great food and a fun time. This is one of the cookie displays on the tables.  Every table had two  boxes of decorated cookies. They were so cute...

We were told to bring a Christmas quilt to show and it didn't matter if it was new or old or if we had ever shown it before. So, I brought my Christmas present quilt to show and it is now on my wall at the house behind the Christmas tree.  I love this quilt.  It was all over blogland last year. I started this one and worked on after Christmas last year but just recently finished it so I could use it for this Christmas.

My friend, Glenda with her favorite Christmas quilt.  This was a Pizza box project.  She made one of these blocks and dressed the gingerbread man and gave these out to others in our group. They made the gingerbread block and dressed them whichever way they wanted to.  This is a very sweet quilt.

This is Karen hiding behind her quilts.  These two quilts were her starter quilts. Her sister worked with her to make these quilts and got her hooked on quilting!

Linda and some of her Christmas quilts.

Rita made a toilet seat cover for her new bathroom!  The D stands for her last name not some other word you might think! 

Here's her Sunbonnet Sue Christmas quilt.  This was a Turning Twenty pattern.

Diana made this small chenille quilt. It has 4 layers of the same print and you sew them together and cut all the layers except the last one and it fuzzes out. 

She also made these Christmas hand towels.

This isn't  a Christmas quilt but it's a beauty anyway and it's going to Sharon's sister as kind of a present so, it counts too.

Martha made this redwork quilt a long time ago and it's still one of her favorites.

Here's Martha's snow man quilt. We had an exchange last year and swapped snowmen.  Mine is still on my stack to be quilted....I hope to get it quilted soon.

This is the Pajama Queen's (Diana) stocking quilt. She wore her red pajamas to the meeting and I kidded her all night...

Susan made this stocking for her grandson.

Here's some baby quilts for her new grand babies.

This is the first swag border she's done and she liked it...

This is Judy's Christmas Poinsettia Star.

Judy and Diane were in charge of the summer blocks this year and they were thinking about Jacob's Ladder blocks.  They decided not to do this one but Judy liked it enough to make this little quilt.  I like it too.

Sally made this one for a new  great grandbaby.

Nancy made this one...

As you can see, we have a lot of talented ladies in our group.  It was fun to see all the Christmas quilts and projects and I hope you enjoyed seeing these too. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.

Thanks for sharing all those lovely quilts and projects. That was so much fun - like a quilt show came to my house while I'm in comfortable PJs and warm and cozy. =) I like your presents, the snowmen and the stockings best - as in projects I'd seriously think about making. I'd love to do a snowman swap! I used to do a lot of swaps, but lately I really haven't.
