    I would enjoy seeing some your examples of Christmas decorating with quilts. Here are some of mine.

    Wow! Everything looks so festive! I usually go away for Christmas, so don't decorate, but yours looks wonderful!

    Your home is lovely and very inspirational!
    I only have a previously posted tree skirt. My goal is to have at least one Christmas bed quilt for next year, also, my piano bench is very lonely. I have the fabrics pulled and a friend coming in January for a 2 person quilt retreat weekend at the cottage.

    What a festive house! Looks like Santa and the Elves should feel comfortable and spend a lot of time there ... have lots of cookies ready for their visit.

    Love every picture. That's a lot of time and work you put into a very festive home. What is the pattern for the first quilt, the one with the green shams?

    Anita's Arrowheads. It was in some magazine a few years ago.

    your home is so lovely and cozy with the quilts. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Your home is so pretty with all the festive decorating. I think this next year will be a good time for me to start on next Christmas's Christmas Quilt.

    I love your tree skirt and table runner. Those half square triangles on the tree skirt must have taken a long time.
