I see a trend here . . . and no I do not have a single one . . . yet!!I can see a new addiction forming -
Love all your Christmas quilts! I only have 2 Christmas quilts, both made from Basic Grey lines. Your red cross quilt kind of convinced me I could make my king size quilt a couple years ago. :)
I love ll your Christmas quilts! One Christmas quilts and have made a few, but realized this year that I don't have one for myself so I started a lime green and pink Christmas tree quilt. My top is done and someone saw it and wanted one, too, so mine still sits and hers is done. Now I have the urge to pull out all my Christmas scraps and play for a while :). Love all the circles!
I'm lovin' those Sunburst blocks. Like you, I'm not a big fan of novelty prints, unless they are Christmas. And then they make me think Retro and happy memories. The ones you have chosen are perfect for Sunbursts.
I love Christmans quilts, too - and I just bought the Sunburst templates ... What a glorious combination :-)
I have the same enthusiasm as you, but for Halloween quilts. I love buying Halloween novelty fabrics. Although that said, I did make 2 Christmas quilts this year too. :-) I always love to peek in and see what you're working on! Happy Holidays.
I am handquilting number 6, designing and piecing number 7, picked up a top that will count as number 8 at a thrift shop, purchased fabrics for number 9 and dreaming of others......the last three have been red, green and black, but the next one is probably going to be hot pink, lime green, red and maybe a little orange. Christmas quilts are a fun way to try out new techniques and colors and to me, an unfinished Christmas quilt is still a Christmas decoration!
Fabulous post! Wow, so much to comment about. First....that DOG! Jenny Egg is totally enchanted by you...if only I could get our dog to look at me with that much devotion....Sigh...Love your Christmas Quilt Show today. Show us more!!!Will you and Boo be making Peanut Blossoms? A totally Midwest Christmas cookie.... except today all recipes feature Hershey kisses when everybody knows the original recipe uses Brach's Chocolate Stars! I am off to bake some this afternoon!I am having such fun making Christmas quilts too! None will be done this year, but next year Who knows???Got a scrappy "many trips" quilt going as well as a stars quilt. So many more in the planning...
Oh, oh, oh! That red stars quilt!! Good thing my machine is set up for quilting: must resist starting anything new just now. Although I know there's a yard of Christmas Red around here somewhere...
love the sunburst block. will have to buy the template. haven't made a Christmas quilt in quite awhile. will have to get busy in the new year. keep buying Christmas fabric, so i am ready.i love the song by george michael - last christmas.

Just love the colours in the Sunburst quilt. Will have to buy some more Christmas fabric if I want to make this beautiful quilt. Made two Christmas cushions tonight for the couch so I am happy! Happy sewing!!
My Christmas quilt is made up of blocks from AOL exchanges in the 90's.
I have a few but my favorite is a Friendship star made up of swap blocks from my first chat group. Blocks made in '97 and I put quilt together in Nov 1999, just in time to welcome new century. I need to get busy to catch up with your collection!
Love that little Santa block. I just may have to try to copy it. Love all your Christmas quilts. I only have a couple.
thrilled to have found your blog as I have just bought your book Minutes of play and can`t wait to get going with some scraps.
