My Quilted Christmas


I'm posting pictures of the various Christmas items I've made over the years. I take them out year after year. It reminds me of all the Christmas projects I've made in the past. I'm posting them in no particular order.

This is a table runner I found as a free project online. I used hand applique and machine quilting to finish it off.


This is a Lil Twister holiday wreath. I'm using it on a table but you could put a bow on it and use it as a wall hanging.


This is my Christmas tree skirt. This is one of my first quilted projects I ever made. It's actually hand quilted. (Sort of big stitches!)


I received this as a gift from my friend, Star. It's on the coffee table in my formal living room. Beautiful machine quilting!


This is a Debbie Mumm pattern. I used scraps to make this one. This is machine pieced and machine quilted.


This is a cute little wall hanging I made in the last few years. It's 3-D! 


This is one of my favorites! I think the pattern was in Quiltmaker magazine. It's paper pieced and machine quilted.

This is my bargello table runner. I love making this. Another favorite of mine. I want to make more bargello items one of these days. I love the effect!

There you have it! That's the tour of my quilted Christmas! Hope you enjoyed it!

  3. I've always loved the polar bear at the window, I remember you making that one and your bargello runner is really interesting - I love the ornaments, they look like they're appliqued on? Very clever - Chris :D

    1. Thank, Chris! Yes, the ornaments are appliqued on and I embroidered a little bit to fancy it up!!
