Time to Decorate!







I love Thanksgiving...it's one of my favorite holidays--but starting the day after, it's time to get out the Christmas quilts.  Christmas quilts are some of my favorites, and I always try to make one or two new ones each year.  Someday I hope to be able to give a Christmas quilt to every member of our family.



I love Christmas quilts of all styles--traditional...



and I love more modern quilts with a touch of whimsy!  Hope you're having a wonderful day...I'll be back to share more Christmas quilts soon!

Hi Sherri,
I can't wait to see how you decorate for Christmas. The pictures didn't show up for me. Don't know if everyone else can see them.

Pics didn't show up in my reader, but they did when I came into the actual blog. And they are very pretty. *S*

It'll be fun to see what else you do.

Took hours for pictures to show up. I just left the blog open and eventually there were pretty Christmas quilts! What fun that will be to give one to each family member.

How nice for you to have made so many Christmas quilts. I've only ever made one, and gave it away!

One day I hope to be able to decorate with Christmas quilts. I don't have any, but I DID just order 12 Days of Christmas jelly roll to do something with! I hope to make one for next Christmas..maybe. I'm looking forward to seeing all yours and what you do with them at Christmas.

Really cute Sherri. Great decorations. Perfect to share in the Christmas Quilt Show too! Maybe next year you'll come share and write another inspirational post on Christmas decorating. Love this post. And, tomorrow I start decorating my home and will see what I can do with your insights.

Yes, it's hard to think of putting up Christmas already. I love seeing your holiday quilts.

ANudge said...

Thanks for reminding me to start decorating. I'm going to try to do a little each day. Love the quilts especially the one that looks like christmas plates. Is there a pattern for that one?

Sewn With Grace said...

Love your Christmas quilts, can't wait to see the rest of them. I've been decorating for the last two days. I'm hoping it will put me in the Christmas spirit!

Gari said...

I love to see Christmas quilts. I only have two but since I seem to be making one each year, if I live long enough, I should be able to fill the house with them every December. I look forward to seeing yours.

Gmama Jane said...

Love the different color schemes of your Christmas quilts...just enough "pop" to make them stand out. I especially like the pop of black in the one quilt. That is my new little addiction but don't tell anyone. SSH!! Show more so we can all be inspired. I just lost a good friend today to colon cancer and I need some Christmas cheer!

What a treat to be able to put out some Christmas decorations! I can't decide which I like better, the more traditional quilt or the more modern one - love them both! So great to be able to enjoy all those wonderful handmade projects for this magical time of year.

Thimbleanna said...

Christmas quilts, I think, are extra special. How wonderful that you would be able to give everyone a Christmas quilt.
