Christmas Quilts

One of my favorite things about Christmas is making and enjoying Christmas quilts.    Whether your curling up on the couch with a good book, cuddling with a loved one, enjoying a cup of cocoa while admiring the lights on your Christmas tree, or watch a classic Christmas movie; it is the perfect time of year to snuggle under a quilt made with love.

So without further ado I share with you a few of my Christmas quilts.  First, The Twelve Rows of Christmas.  Hung in my front window since I have no one to hold it up for me.  They have all left for their various activities of the day.
Next a Christmas Star, the week before Christmas everyone in our family will get a chance to sleep under this quilt to ensure all their Christmas dreams come true.

Then we have A Santa on Every Corner, made with blocks from Nanette's exchange a few years back.  A reminder of all my wonderful bloggy neighbors.

Next, Oh Christmas Tree with an added memory, DD signed it when she was four.  I was mad when it happened now it just makes me smile.

Mr. Snowman celebrating with his Charlie Brown Christmas tree.

And finally a group of his friends wishing for a white Christmas.

What Christmas quilts so you have?  Do you have special memories or traditions that go with them?  I'd love to hear about them.

  2. You have some special Christmas treasures. I do love the idea of your daughter autographing the quilt, even if it wasn't requested at the time. :o)

  4. I have no christmas quilts. Yours are so much fun. Oh, I take that back, I have a store-bought quilt that I get out for the holidays. But, someday I will make one, probably for my mother. She loves to decorate for Christmas.
