The Winners

Thanks to everyone who participated in the HG Blog Hop!  I’m sure the grand prize winner won’t have to buy any fabric or patterns for at least a year!

The winners from my post will each receive a bundle of free patterns.

The randomly chosen winners are:

Kathi (of www.feeddogsdown.blogspot.com)

Janice (who commented on 12-2-10 at 11:49 pm)

and Rebecca Merry (of www.merrymadequilts.blogspot.com)

Just drop me an e-mail with your shipping address and I will get these in the mail asap.  (My e-mail is hmulder@wecnet.com)

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 . . . . .

(The cast of quilts, in order of their appearance: 
Pinwheel Poinsettia, from the book “Calendar of Quilts”
Pretty in Pink, from the book “Livin’ Large”
Snails in the Sand, from the book “Favorite Quits from Anka’s Treasures)
Winter Seasonal Topper, from the book “On the Run”
Around the Corner, single pattern
The Everyday Table Topper, from the book “Charmed and Dangerous”
Sweet Pea and Diamond Diva, single patterns
Citrus Punch, from the book “The Sweet Life”
Diamond Diva, single pattern)

Day 4 of the Henry Glass Project Parade

Welcome to Day 4 of the Henry Glass Project Parade!

Today we have three more designers to share with you.

 
Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup at http://www.quiltsoupblog.com/
 
Beth and Liz Hawkins of Lizzie B Creative at http://www.dreamlaughcreate.blogspot.com/
 
 
 and Laurie Bird of Rose Cottage at http://www.rosecottagequilts.blogspot.com/

 So have you started any of the projects from the blog hop yet?  If you have, you can share them on our Flickr page  
 
 
 
Here in Minnesota,  our area is under a winter storm watch, with up to 12″ of snow expected.  Our yard is turning into a winter wonderland.
 
 
 
Sounds like a perfect time to stay home and get the Christmas decorations up.  So far I have one tree up
 
and one of my Christmas quilts hung.
 
 
There’s lots of work to do yet, so I better get back to it!
 
PS ~ This quilt design if from my book Livin’ Large and is based off the quilt Pretty in Pink.  The fabric is Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey.
