The last of the Christmas Quilts...


This poor little old blog's best days are over. I have ignored it completely these last few months and not even thought twice about it. All good things must end... or die a slooooow somewhat painful death, as is the case of this blog. {No tears necessary!} Anyway, my efforts are elsewhere these days, but I do love to chronicle things on my blog, so here's a post about the last few Christmas quilts I've finished.

This first one is a non-traditional color for Christmas, and I couldn't love the fabric more. Who doesn't love a little pink at Christmastime and get a load of those cute Santas in his village...


I'm so glad I put that red frame around the border of the quilt to break up the pink. It really adds a lot to the quilt and every now and then I hit the jackpot when I make a quilt. This one is unconventional and so cute.


This one is for my son and his partner. They decorated their home in silvery metallics last Christmas and it was stunning. I thought these metallic fabrics would be beautiful for their Christmas quilt...


This nutcracker fabric is so beautiful. We've collected a number of nutcrackers in our family over the years, so this fabric means more to us than merely a beautiful pattern. 


The last quilt is another playful one for a family with younger children. I think they will enjoy the colors and theme of this cute quilt...



I made 10 Christmas quilts this year. It was really fun having a theme for quilts and I'm amazed at how different they all are. That's one of the fun things about quilting -- no two quilts are the same!

Your Christmas quilts are so wonderful! I have been wanting to get started with quilting and have read your blog on all the earlier quilts. It's inspiring me! I just made up the toddler bed today for grandchild #2 and was thinking how fun it would be to have a Christmas quilt! I saw this post and now I am looking for fabric. I will miss your blog. Do you have an Instagram feed for pics?

Thank you for all the sharing you have done.
