I just love Christmas and have been busy hanging up my Christmas quilts. I always hang then in the beginning of December so that I can get maximum enjoyment from them. Here are just a few of my quilts. Made just two years ago is “All the Love of Christmas”, an adaptation of a Bronwyn Hayes design with her trademark stitchery blocks. I did make some changes as I couldn’t live with upside down people! Such fun to do and I am really pleased with the finished quilt.

It is always interesting to check the labels and see when these creations were made. My red and green “Christmas Stars” was made way back in 1992! My tastes have changed over the years and I tend to use more of a burgundy red these days instead of bright red.
I really enjoy doing the stitchery style blocks and completed this cute little Christmas Swag earlier this year. The Santa, reindeer, snowman and Christmas tree were easy to stitch. I like to use the thicker Perle cotton instead of the more usual stranded cottons.
And lastly, this pretty little crazy quilted tree was a gift from my daughter Nicky many years ago, so of course is very special to me. The tree is adorned with various braid, buttons, cord, ribbon and lace. My daughter is not a quilter so I think this is the first and last quilt she has ever made, which makes it even more special.
