And because I can’t do a post without pictures, I thought I’d share a few of my finished Christmas decorating – not that I really do much.  I’m still in the collecting stage, as each year I add a few more decorations.

A quilt and a wreath for the front door,

A little garland and another quilt greet you at the front door,

and yet another Christmas quilt right at the top of the stairs.  See that empty coffee table?  I think it needs a quilt too!

For those of you wondering how the latest remodel is coming, the fireplace is now finished and kicking out lots of heat.

This Christmas runner needs it’s binding before the Holiday company starts coming over!

This is the first year that I’ve been able to decorate with Christmas quilts made from one of my Christmas lines.  Kinda fun . . .   This quilt hangs in the office, which is connected to my studio.

This quilts makes a good tree skirt.  I have a tree skirt pieced, I just need to get it quilted.  (Then I’d like to do a tutorial on how I do the center hole in tree skirt)

That’s as far as I’ve gotten.  I realized, believe it or not, that I don’t have quite enough Christmas quilts.  What I need is some table runners, so I might work on that this week.  I could also use some stockings.  Might have to think about that too . . . . .

    Everything looks so gorgeous!!! I really need to work on making quilts for myself. Seems once I get into a sewing mood, I gift everything to someone else and my house is sadly bare 😛
    Love your home; the simplicity of design and space…so open and inviting and clutter free!

    Congratulations to all the winners! Merry Christmas to you!!! Heather, your home is absolutely beautiful. I recall some posts a while back when you were in the midst of remodeling and now look at your lovely home! It gives me hope, LOL…we are now in the midst of some light remodeling and won’t be finished until … well at least the end of January. I keep wondering why we started it when we did, *sigh*. Ah well, I’ll just keep reminding myself of your before and after posts. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your wonderful home with us. Merry Christmas!

    Beautiful decorating! I actually have no Christmas quilts at all! So I’d better get busy. I have a question regarding your outdoor quilt – do you worry about it getting damaged from the snow/ice/rain that it is exposed to? I’d love to hang a quilt outside, but have always worried about this. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Congrats to the winners!

    Love all your Christmas quilts. I have yet to make one though I have made a couple of wallhangings and a poinsettia table runner. You have a gorgeous house.

  13. Diane says:

    You house is so beautiful. I am ashamed to say, I still have Halloween deocrations up! I’ve been so busy shopping and getting packages wrapped and ready to mail I haven’t gotten around to Christmas deocrating yet. I definitley need to make some Christmas quilts. I only have one that I made for my husband a few years ago so I had to laugh when you said you need to make more. 🙂 Thanks for the great pictures!
