Wow. Here we are, less than 5 months until Christmas. And I have a lofty goal of 9 quilts, 1 for each grandchild by Christmas. I keep saying I won't be sewing on Christmas Eve every year and guess what? I still am. I don't have any of their quilts done. I guess I better get started.
This blog hop is being hosted by Carol @ justletmequilt.blogspot.com. I have loved looking through the ideas. So many fun things to do.
Carol made this hop easy by saying we could post things we made in the past or now. So I want to share a variety of throw pillows I have made.
|I love these snowmen|
And I want to share a quilt I just finished quilting. I still need to bind it, and I will hopefully get it done this weekend. This quilt was made from a free pattern, which unfortunately is no longer available called Cookie Jar treats. It was designed to match a fabric line.
|I love the texture on the back.|
I really wish my quilting would have shown up better. On the snowball blocks I did holly leaves and my red corner squares are poinsettias, both designs I learned from @ lorikennedyquilts.com. in my nine patches I did wishbone and I tried some dot to dot quilting which I learned from Angela Walters @ quiltingismytherapy.com. thread used is glide by @ habanddash.com which is my favorite.
Thank you for joining me today. I love to read your comments.

The pillows are just darling. I think you have the same couch as me!ReplyDelete
Great pillows! I haven't tackled those yet as a seasonal decoration, but I could see it happening!ReplyDelete
You do have a lofty goal this year. Many years ago I made quilts for all my nieces and nephews for Christmas. They still talk about them today. It really is heart warming. I'm rooting you on. You can do it!ReplyDelete

Thanks for sharing your pillows and your quilt. I love the quilting. Looking at it from the back is like getting the gift of a second quilt. Great job.ReplyDelete
That's a very cute quilt, and I love the name! You've been busy!ReplyDelete
5 months? You have to be kidding, right? My Christmas Box is woefully lacking at the moment so I had better get my thinking cap on and figure out what I'm making for everyone. Last year everybody got a pair of hand knitted socks that took me the entire year to do but this year I don't have any ideas. Thank you for inviting us over for a wee visit with you!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing your projects! You're not alone, sewing on Christmas Eve. Sometimes I just wrap up a WIP and that's that.ReplyDelete
Yes, I understand sewing on Christmas Eve! Last year I gave up and my grands didn't get their Christmas quilts until after the lockdown started!! So much to do, so little time, and lately lacking in mojo to get it done! Thanks for sharing your projects.ReplyDelete
Beautiful things made with fun fabrics.ReplyDelete
These are great, and so cheery for winter. Quilting always looks so good on the back. It's why I often use muslin backings, since I love the look of the back stitching. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Wonderful Christmas projects. Nice quilting.ReplyDelete
