Darlene, over at SewCalGal is hosting the 2011 Christmas Quilt Show!
Hurry over and link up your blog with a post showcasing one of your favorite Christmas quilts... or more than one if you are feeling quiet Christmasy!
The first quilt I am showing was made for a friend of mine in Maine. I participated in a Secret Santa Stocking Swap on the HGTV Quilting and Needlework Forum and drew Margot's name. I had started this quilt for a friend who was having a baby and once I got it pieced, I saw it was too small for a child. So when I joined the Stocking Swap I knew I would use it for whomever's name I drew! The original kit had appliqued snowmen for each square but I chose to machine quilt Christmas words in each of the open squares. Margot really liked it, in fact, I was at a quilting retreat with her on the 17th of this month in Alabama and I asked her about the quilt. She said she never took it down after Christmas was over last year! :)
These next quilt tops are "in-process" for my grandchildren. I actually started them last year but did not get them completed. They have grown a mile so I guess this year they will need an additional border! better get them finished while the finishing is good!! acckk!!
This is a quilt I made for my oldest granddaughter on her first Christmas in 2003. She now has a sister so I am thinking I may do her one too!
And last but not least... This may not be a quilt but I wanted to share them too! Back in the 90's I made a ton of these Reindeer dolls! This set went to my beautician, nancy Smith. As you can see they are about as big as her 2 year old daughter! I always enjoyed making these babies! Their clothes and all are handmade and they wear real shoes and socks!
SO!! What are you waiting for?? Head on over to SewCalGal's 2011 Christmas Quilt Show and get your link on!
