    Holidays&Seasons

    What is your favorite holdiay or season to make quilts and crafts for?
    A little bit of thread, fabric, a good imagination, and a sewing machine can make an exquist art all its own.

    Well, I really like fall... I like the actual season & I like the colors that go with it. Xmas is good, too.

    Hi
    I seem to have many autumn colored quilts, runners, and wall hangings.....must be my favorite! I also like winter and snowmen, guess fall and winter could be in a race for first place!

    My favorite is fall. Love the earth tones mixed with the fall colors.

    Probably the fall. I have an absolute fetish when it comes to fabric with pumpkins on it.

    Hands down it fall for me .. if I look at my stash it is primarily fall colors and coodinates. There are such beautiful Christmas fabrics every year and I do love them but its such a limited use , I have really backed off making Christmas projects.

    Season's and holidays sneak up on me and I never have enough time to make anything related to them. I'm terribly slow at everything I do. I have project boxes for fall and Valentines day quilts...just haven't gotten to them yet. Maybe next year. Sigh.

    Winter. I like it because I can make snowmen. After all, who doesn't smile when they see a snowman? I also like fall.

    I like making things for just about every holiday season. I have partically finished quilts and crafts for every holiday, lol, accept Easter, now that I think of it, I just need to get back to finishing them. It's been a while since I have sewn anything together...

    Halloween's the only holiday I really celebrate. I've never made a seasonal/holiday quilt, and I don't decorate, but I bought these two patterns because they are just too cute:

    Summer. Probably b/c blue and yellow are my two favorite fabric colors and I have the summers off from work (plenty of time to quilt).

    I don't usually make quilts for a particular holiday. My preferred quilting time is spring, then summer. When I lived in Canada, and was used to a climate that covered the outdoors in cold whiteness, my craft season was winter. Now that I live in the South I prefer the hot months - when it is too hot to be outside!

    Christmas for gifts, not quilts. I don't like seasonal quilts.
