Some Sewing Over the Christmas Holiday

 

When the Christmas quilting rush was over for the season, I was able to get a few holiday projects of my own done.  I like to keep the studio room current for the holidays, because it is a fun place for my “quilty friends” to sit and visit about their projects.

In late December, I was able to get this Santa quilt completed.  It is from Christmas Favorites from Art to Heart.

I used most of the same fabrics that she used in her pattern and was really happy with how bright and cheery it turned out. (There is a message here about my fabric stash–the book, and fabric,  are few years old.)  It was sort of a big, labor intensive quilt to start in December.  My husband thought I was crazy!  And now that Christmas is over, the challenge is to store it in a way that will not crush the dimensional mustache and poinsettia petals.  Click on the Portfolio section from the home page for more pictures.

 

The snowman wall hanging is also from Art to Heart patterns, Ho Ho Ho Let it Snow.  This pattern book has a lot of projects for pillows and wall hangings that I hope to get done for next year.

The red and white topper on the trunk is one of my favorites!  It is from 101 Fabulous Small Quilts.  This one is called Midnight Star.  I really like the red and white combination.

There are several great patterns in the book that are versatile, especially if you think of more updated color schemes.
