CHRISTMAS QUILTS

I want to share pictures of Christmas quilts I display during the holiday season.  I think I have shown almost all of them on my blog in the past but hope you enjoy a second look.








The following wool mat was made by my friend Beverly.  The date on the back is 2004.  The Sew 'N Sews had a Christmas trade that year and she had my name.  I think the pattern was in a quilt magazine but I don't remember any of the information about which one or the designer.

And last is a picture of the Alpine tree with the vintage cookie cutters for decoration.  It is hard to get a good picture in the location it sits because of glare from the window.

Enjoy your holiday season!

I am a HUGE fan of all your quilts, but I have always had a fondness for Log Cabin quilts and also that stitchery one you made is darling and right up my alley!

Merry Christmas to you!

I love Christmas quilts - and yours are NO exception *s*

I always feel so bad when I have to put them away at the end of the season, so I've started leaving one or two out. Strategically folded and no one knows the difference and I can enjoy them all year long.

Merry Christmas!

Sue said...

Oh so lovely! Always, always enjoy seeing your handi-work!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year!

Thanks for the tour, I feel all warm and cosy and ready for Christmas now. But I need to know where you got the cat angel pattern, that is over the top cute!

Happy Holidays to you and yours as well, Karen.

Now do I get to choose which quilt I would like? *wink* I would be hard pressed because I love them all!

Country Prims said...

Such a lot of quilts and still I see more on your shelves???

Amazing-I just love them all Karen:)

You asked re my pennys-I just trace onto freezer paper and iron on to the wool and cut:) I sure would love a special cutter to do it, but that works ok for me at this time.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Karen said...

Okay, love the Noel and the funky cats! Are those patterns?? OMG they are too cute!

Martha said...

I'm so glad you posted photos of your Christmas quilts again. I have only made one (and it' not even finished), but I've got an idea for a second one and wondered if two Christmas quilts would be overkill. Clearly, it is not! ...and you have inspired me with your fabulous collection of Christmas quilts.

Purple Pam said...

What beautiful Christmas quilts. They are all so beautiful!

Have a Happy New Year.

Trish said...

Karen, I love your primitive Christmas cat quilt. Could you please tell me who the designer of the pattern is? Thanks for any help you can give me.
