I made up this pattern and intended to applique some Red Wagon (Snowbound) angels or shepherds on it, but you can see how far I've gotten with that!!
Here is the very first Christmas quilt. This quilt brings back so many happy memories I can't bear to part with it. My sister (who lived in Lakeland, FL at the time) made these one summer when she came to visit. She has one identical to this! :) The colors and fabrics have changed so much.
This is the last Fireplace quilt of the year, not over the fireplace because there's a wreath there.
It always looks so pretty here in the hallway.
Here's a close up of the quilting, I wanted them to look like Christmas trees. I was able to figure out a continuous line quilting design and I'm very happy with it. This was one of my first projects when I learned to machine quilt.
This is my angel quilt. My friend Kim and I made this quilt together as a quilt-along before there was such a thing I guess (circa 1997). It's a very special quilt for me.
And here are the Joy Angels. I am putting the angel banner on my list this year - I really want one!!
And I love my big star and angel. I'll do a post after Christmas about the whole angel quilt. It's not really Christmas, so it stays out most of the winter.
Here's the latest one I'm working on. I've been trying to finish this for 4 years!!!!! It's also done in the "one of a kind" method. I'm hand quilting it but it doesn't even have that much quilting in it. I'm hoping to spend some quality time quilting over the holidays since we are not travelling this year.
The colors in this quilt make me so happy. I think it's that barn red and the caramel/brown. Just realized I forgot Snowbound - I'll do that separate.
So that's my living room, filled with Christmas quilts and they all get used!!
Until next time,
Until next time,
