Christmas Quilts for the Home

Today, it’s all about Christmas quilts! These aren’t quick projects, but they are a joy to make, and are displayed in the home of one of our team members with their notes on these projects…

Santa and His Reindeer

This little wall hanging has a special spot in my heart. I found the center with Santa and his reindeer unfinished in the things I inherited from my mother-in-law.  She had them fused in place but that was all. I blanket stitched around them and added the borders.

The red border is corduroy. The quilting in that border says “ho ho ho.” In the green border the quilting says Merry Christmas in several different languages.

My Christmas Table Runner

Sara Gallegos, host of My First Quilt (a free video series we offer), is my friend. I made this table runner for her when she was getting ready to film the first set of segments for the show. She used this quilt to talk about keeping all the different pieces of a quilt organized. Check out that segment of My First Quilt, or if you would like to see all the segments in the series, look here.

Sara will be here next week to film another series for My First Quilt. I can hardly wait for her to arrive.
