Merry Christmas Quilts

Diadem Quilt from my Supersize 'Em Quilts book
As I was looking at the quilts on my wall this morning, in the quiet of the early hours, I realized that I was gazing at a few of my Christmas quilts. The one pictured above is called Diadem because, well, that's the name of the traditional block! The center fabric is a large 10" finished patch so you can feature a beautiful large scale print. And the corners are paper pieced for a 14" finished block.

One Day Lone Star (a workshop I teach)
All rotary cut patches. This was sewn in the hopes of having it "picked up" by a magazine a few years back. No one picked it up, so I took it on the road. I love teaching this class because many students actually can finish most of the center star in a day. Don't you just love that awesome floral print I used for the background? This was a collection from Blank Quilting called Holiday Splendor.

I had some leftover fabrics and used them to create my Magic Triangles quilt.

I absolutely love this fabric collection. I have another project I'm working on using the leftovers of the leftovers!

I wish you and your family and friends a wonderful holiday, Merry Christmas and Happy, Prosperous New Year filled with good health and laughter. And, oh yes! A lot of good quilting time.

  1. I would take the Lone Star in a day class if I were closer. The only one I've ever done nearly got thrown in the trash. The teacher was sick the she taught it and gave inaccurate instructions, but I eventually figured it out. I have another Lone Star planned now that I've kind of forgotten how frustrated I was.
    Merry Christmas to you Debby !
