A Christmas Quilt Show



Are you ready for another virtual quilt show? I wasn't going to enter this year because I have nothing new to show you. But I do have several Christmas items that I think are very nice.





Here they are.

I made this tree skirt a long time ago. The applique was done by machine. The quilting also. This skirt resides at my DD's house.

Next is my 'Quilt-As-You-Go' quilt. I know it's not very Christmasy being blue and all. But the blue fabric has Christmas Bears on it, so I think it should count as a Christmas quilt.

The next quilt is one of my favourites. It gets to stay on the couch all through Christmas and well into the new year. The trees are machine appliqued. As you can see, Mimi likes it too!


And last is an appliqued Santa. This one also resides at my DD's house over Christmas. He hangs in her vestibule to greet everyone who comes to her house during the holiday season.



If you want to see more Christmas Quilts, go to Sew Cal Gal's blog.

They are so lovely! I'm new to the show this year - so if you showed something twice I wouldn't have known. Thanks for sharing!

Lovely quilts! I love how Santa's reindeer circle around the center of the tree skirt. And the Santa wall hanging would make me smile even after the worst day! Very cute...thank you for sharing :-)

Everything is lovely. I especially like your tree skirt. There is nothing nicer than a handmade tree skirt and yours is really intricate! Back when I was in high school I hooked a tree skirt and have used it every Christmas since. It does become a tradition! Glad your daughter includes your beautiful handiwork in her Christmas traditions :)

Your quilts are lovely. I must admit that I love blue for Christmas. I really should finish my Christmas quilt.
The little Santa quilt is so cute.

Hi hetty.
This is a lovely collection of Christmas quilts. I have blue Christmas quilts,too, and they remind me of ice and snow.
