Christmas Quilts

November 29, 2019

I wanted the "twins" dressed for Christmas, with this being the first Christmas in our new home.  The twins are the vintage twin beds I found and refinished earlier this year. I'm sure I've posted about them before. This is the grandkids room although they've never spent a night here since they are still living in England.  I've got my fingers crossed for next year.

 I used a Lella Boutique fabric line called Little Tree for both quilts.

 The quilt on the right is a post card pattern called Cloud 9.  Super easy and quick.  The other quilt uses the pattern called North Star.  Not quite as easy and quick as the other, but worth the effort.

I also pulled out a favorite oldie.  A pattern from Bonnie Hunter, called Bricks and Stepping Stones.  It is a great pattern to use for shirt pieces.  I made this one in 2011 from the shirts my son wore through his high school and college years.  So many memories.....

If he and his family can't be here for the holidays, I am going to satisfy my need to have them close by snuggling up in this quilt every chance I get.  

 

Do you make holiday quilts?  If so, share some pictures.  I'd love to see them!

 

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are looking forward to a blessed Christmas.
