Christmas Quilt Tour

So are you ready for Christmas?

I am almost ready.  I am finishing one last gift and need to do the rest of the wrapping.  There will be food to prepare and a few last-minute things to do.

The gifts I have left to finish are Christmas ornaments for the boys.  We just started them during nap time on Monday, so I should be able to finish them by Sunday.  Let’s just say that they won’t be quite as detailed as last years!   My four year old has decided that he is done taking naps, so he helped me with the colors and the drawings.



The thing I probably won’t finish by Sunday is this year’s Christmas quilt.  I have 2 blocks left to go, borders and quilting.  The beautiful pattern is Felicity by Kate Spain and the fabric is Juniper Berry by Basic Grey.



For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know I make something for Christmas each year, though it usually isn’t a big quilt like this.   I have been doing this long enough that I am getting quite a collection of Christmas quilts – enough to have some Christmas cheer in many of my rooms.  I thought it would be fun to share them with you today.  I am also going to have a Big end of the year sale on nooks and patterns .  . .  but more on that at the end.


The Tour –

My entry –  This is where the new Kate Spain one will go when it’s done, but in the meantime I am using this design from my Living Large book and the fabric is another Basic Grey Christmas line.  Basic Grey and Kate Spain do the best Christmas lines!



My Living Room



I love all things snowflake – as you will see.  (Snowflake garland ordered from this Etsy shop).



Let It Snow Runner. –  See the “Quilt Along” tab above if you are interested in learning more about this runner and the techniques used.  Again, this fabric is Juniper Berry.



I have the full version  of  Let It Snow  in my kitchen.  Many of these fabrics are from Kate Spain, with the addition of a few things from my stash.



And yet another version in my bedroom.  I have made 3 of these quilts, plus two runners, so it’s a favorite winter quilt pattern .  The tree/diamond quilt above it can be found here.  The fabrics used are Holly’s Tree Farm by Sweetwater and another Basic Grey line (I have used so many of their Christmas lines that I can’t keep the names straight anymore).



This is a shot of my studio.  I rotate seasonal quilts on my rack between the bookcases.  I also like to hang another seasonal quilt over the door (found here).



And another angle in the studio



The stocking pattern can be found here.  The quilt over the ottoman can be found here.



A favorite snowflake runner hangs over the mini buffet in my dining room – pattern found here.



And another snowflake one (found here.)

My dining room



The runner on the table is called Wrapped and can be found in this book.



Another angle in the dining room – Topper found here.



And in our bedroom – Who remembers this Christmas line from 3 Sisters?  It was one of my favorite lines back then and still is.  Pattern found here.



I can’t decide if I should have the previous quilt on my bed, or this one.



The fabric was my first ever Christmas collection called Home for the Holidays.  The pattern was a free download from Henry Glass’s website.  Click here to download the free pattern.



Two other quilts from my family room – both found in this book and fabrics lines are once again from Kate Spain and Basic Grey.




And one last runner, also from the same book.



Thanks for joining me on the tour.  Some of my favorite quilts are Christmas/winter themes so it’s always fun to be able to put them out and enjoy them.

    What a terrific post! I adore Christmas quilts and am feeling quite inspired! I am not ever sure about how to use table runners and I love how you have decorated with them in some unusual ways!

    Such a pleasure to join you on your tour. I’ve taken pics of several of your pieces as a guide for attempting to create stack and whack designs to add to a red and green piece of floral Christmas print quilt I am working on. I’ve done research and even made one stack and whack but I wanted to try some different ideas that are basically my ideas of what it could be. Thank you for inviting us in.

    Wow! I love the quilts, and colors of your home. Everything is so cozy. I have turquoise and red in my kitchen, kind of retro. All because of one of the chickens in my collection, with a turquoise scarf. And I LOVE the green you incorporated into your home. You have given me great ideas. And inspired me to get into my sewing room (which is lavender with black and white accents) this winter. Thanks for the post. P.S. The table runner hanging from a hook is so cute.
