Christmas In My Heart
This is such a special time of year - a season of family and friends and giving and sharing. And it is so special to share it with other quilting bloggers. We have our own special gift, Marian of Seams To Be Sew , who shares her energy and expertise in planning the Christmas Heart blog hop.
Christmas is everywhere. On a trip to Frenchies, our local second hand store, I spotted a Minnie Mouse on a child's shirt.
I thought such pretty design would make a cute hanging.
The latest issue of American Patchwork and Quilting featured a pattern for a Christmas Cottage table runner which proved impossible to resist. I love the little houses.
The colors are much richer but it was such a grey day out that all the pictures are muted.
It is fun stitching using all the colors in one design. This starry mat will function well all year. Christmas does not always have to be red and green.
This is a split nine patch which used up lots of Christmas stash. I made the top several years ago and it entered the UFO pile. I am happy to report a finished quilt (and one less UFO yea!!)
A flannel backing makes this really cozy for snuggling.
And I could not resist stitching Marian Pena's gift of a Christmas Star (free pattern) on my Sunbonnet Sue block. Thank you for the star.
So brew some tea and spend time exploring new Christmas Love creations on today's blogs.
