    These are not new quilts. This has been over the last 5 years or so.

    The first one is a Vintage moments class I took just for fun.

    The second one was a pattern I found shop hopping.

    The third my daughter made for me as a present a couple years ago.

    This year I made the tree skirt for us no Christmas quilt. I'm keeping my eyes open for that perfect one. I'm certainly open for ideas so if any of you see a quilt that would make a perfect Christmas quilt just let me know.

    The top one really called to me. How did you make the centers on the pointsettas? They look raised.

    My daughter made the poinsettia one for me. They are appliqued with a fusible that is pretty stiff.

    The center is beads so it isn't really a cuddly quilt.

    The first one isn't a Christmas quilt pattern. It is Marsha McCloskey's Vintage Moments pattern. She designed it to be used with reproduction fabrics. I just saw Christmas when I saw it.

    Any quilt can be a Christmas quilt depending on the fabric.

    The poinsettia one was a table runner from the cover of American Patchwork magazine that was just expanded into a full size quilt.

    The one that was a Christmas pattern is too small. I wish I would have put some borders on it to make it bigger but it is done and bound now and I'm not taking it apart. I'll just make a different quilt.

    I have 2 more beds to go but then there is always the couch and Christmas throws would be nice and what about the air mattress guests.

    The list never ends. LOL Thanks all for your kind comments.
