When do you usually start your Christmas quilts? Do you work on on them all year or just in the fall or closer to the holiday?

This is the first year I've planned a quilt as Christmas gift. Purchased 30 embroidered tractor blocks, ordered John Deere fabric and I am in the process of designing this little jewel. This is for my precious son-in-law.

Usually in July; I like to have them ready by December 1, so it depends on the size. I like to make a few full or queen size, lap size and wallhangings.

All year long, as a project presents itself.

Right now I am making a train quilt for my grandson, lighthouse quilt for my son & wife, fishing quilt for DH, my daughter is still open.

We make and sell Christmas quilts all year long at our shop. After many people asking about them during the off seasons, we decided to make them, and not only Christmas quilts, but other holiday quilts sell year round.
