Default Quilting for Christmas

33 weeks until Christmas! Is anyone else working on projects for the holiday season? Mostly I'm just looking for an excuse to quilt, but it's also nice to give a gift that has so much time and thought put into it. So far I have fabric and patterns picked out for all three of my nephlings—chevrons for the 9yo, green and pink for the 3yo, and a robot blanket for the little boy. I swear I'm not buying any more fabric until those are done!

I'm already scheming about what other quilted gifts I can do... I'd like to do a Settlers of Catan table mat for my sister, table runners for parents and in-laws, something cat-themed and practical for my aunt..... the list goes on!

What are you planning?

I have finished up a tumbler that sat for a while. My sister will get it. Also I have an all purple half log cabin for my sister.

I have blocks completed for 2 handkerchief quilts for each of my daughters for Christmas. Still have to do sashing & borders to complete. Have t-shirts for a quilt for my granddaughter for Christmas. Have been busy doing graduation quilting but will get back to Christmas quilting as soon as that wraps up. I can't believe there are only 33 weeks left !

i can't think about Christmas yet. My friends are pressuring me to make items for the fundraising season coming up in the fall.

Nothing as yet planned. I am just trying to finish up some ufo's I have had around too long.

Your little quilts are delightful.

I just finished piecing a LARGE tree skirt. I still need to quilt it, but I have time for that.

For me it's usually a mad dash a week or two before Christmas of something quick and easy - fabric boxes; table runner; and the like. And usually it's for a small group (3) of friends and only a token gift at that.
