We had a holiday party here last Sunday and I hung up most of my Christmas quilts: walls, over the banister, draped on the backs of chairs. Then there were the table runners. It was like a Christmas museum. I think I overwhelmed my guests, but they loved it (or so they said). I'll share just a few here.
Old and new quilts and those in between. This little quilt is at least 30 years old. I cut out some printed circle motifs and appliquéd them to a background square.

Another oldie is my Rose Wreath and Oak Leaf quilt. It technically isn't a Christmas quilt but the colors are!

I made a snowman quilt. I've lived in a state that gets snow in the Winter, so it works here! We haven't had a white Christmas in years, though!
I've made several table toppers using single blocks. This was made several years ago with a cardinal in the center and Christmas ornament motifs in the surrounding logs.
One more topper (quite a bit larger) uses the same holiday themed fabrics. I did a blog hop for Benartex that featured this.

And one more using panels. Again, this is at least 25 years old and I still bring it out and display it. This photo is how it was stylized for a magazine photo shoot.

And I'll finish with some angels. This was part of a block swap when I was on an AOL quilting bulletin board in the early 1990s. I've had it hanging over the banister since last Christmas! I never noticed. I had 6 angels and I surrounded them with lots of triangles!

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy and a healthy New Year!
I hope your Christmas has been joyous! I can never get enough of Christmas quilts, or of your quilts. Thank you for sharing these!ReplyDelete
Christmas spent with 1 of 3 daughters with grandkids. Nothing flashy - just family and fun. I discovered several holiday quilts daughter has that I gave her - glad she displays them!Delete
