    Red face Quilting for Christmas. Anyone else?

    Currently I'm on a mission to complete four quilts that will be Christmas gifts for my sister and three children. Sisters is waiting on binding, son's top is done and will be quilted as soon as I go get some batting for it, and daughters tops are in progress. Just curious, who else is working on Christmas quilts now?

    I have one pair of GI Joe pjs finished for grandson and a pair of pj pants for my daughter, his mother. I have a quilt top finished but I'm not sure if I'm going to give it to that person or not. Aaannd a lot of ideas floating around, if I ever get to them in time.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Yikes - I have plans but time is moving way too quickly!! I'm trying to finish up my son's quilt for his birthday - which is the end of September so I can concentrate on Christmas gifts.

    Just finishing up a log cabin for our bed. Next I'm starting on a nativity scene wall hanging for Christmas. Have cut out several double handed pot holders for gifts.

    This afternoon I start on 8 quilted placemats for my sister. That will be a nice change from doing big quilts.

    Four of my quilts have been done as Christmas pressies for my grown up children. My youngest was just given her one when I finished it though she hasn't seen it in the flesh yet as she's been in Australia for the past five weeks visiting her older sister. I got some lovely fabrics for trying my hand at table linen for other gifts. Not sure though how I will get on with these.

    I have decided on the pattern for a lap quilt for my DDIL and will shop soon for the fabric. It's pretty straight forward and shouldn't take too long. I also want to make my daughter a table runner and place mats, but I haven't decided on the pattern yet. I'd love to make my granddaughters something like pjs, but I'm not sure they would be appreciated. Will continue to think and plan.

    So far this year ( for christmas ) I have made both of my daughters each a queen size quilt for their beds. My son in law a full size quilt, my youngest granddaughter a queen size quilt, and my soon to be married granddaughter a queen size wedding quilt. Wedding is in Nov. I am working on an appliqued Christmas Tree Quilt now, for myself!!

    I feel like a real slacker!!! I'm hoping to make minkee-backed quilts for 3 of my grandchildren. Eight-yr-old granddaughter has been spending some time with me this week and next and I let her sew some seams. I think she's hooked!!. She wanted to see my fabric so I showed it to her. She immediately spotted her quilt (even though it was inside out) and asked if it was for her, because of the hot pink binding. I told her I was sorry, but it was a donation quilt. Younger brother gets an Spy"; and haven't quite decided on older sister's. I'd best get busy!!

    I had big plans at the begininning of the year. There were 4 large lap quilts I wanted to make and thought I'd have time to get them done. BUT I have to downsize and have been trying to get rid of 20+ years of stuff. I haven't sewn in 2 months. I'm moving in Sept. and hope to be organized enough to start sewing again by Oct. If I really push it, I may get 2 done for Christmas. I'm proud of myself, though, because I've already bought 3 gifts. They were just perfect for the recipient, so I had to get them.

    I have finished 2 quilts for Christmas gifts and have 4 quilts at the LAQ. Tonight, I am sewing the binding on a quilt for Christmas. I have 2 tops here that I need to quilt myself. I have plans to make several other quilts as Christmas gifts. Last year, I didn't get my quilts finished in time so this year, I started early.

    I made 8 muslin bunnies for my 8 granddaughters. I want to make table runners for each family, and a queen quilt for one of my children. I may make some bow tucks bags too if I get time to do it.

    I haven't started on anything yet. I mentioned making new stockings for all of us as our family has grown. The daughter I mentioned it to was adamant - no new stockings!! I suggested that each of my daughter's could take their stockings home to their houses but she said no, they must all stay together. What to do with a sentimental 30 y/o?

    I'm just beginning to get thoughts/ideas and fabrics ready. I probably won't get everything done for this Christmas...so then I'll be that much further ahead for the next one !

    I am! I have four table runners pieced, one more laid out to sew and a few more patterns picked.
