Merry Christmas

I hope you all have a Blessed Christmas and a wonder New Year. My husband and I are leaving for Florida Saturday to spend the holidays with our family. The following are some holiday quilts my friends and I made.

Two years ago I made my oldest grandson a large beautiful Christmas quilt but never got to the little ones. One of the twins took over his quilt so I thought I'd better make them a quick one this year and make them a large one in a few years. I saw this flannel snowman panel at the quilt shop and bought three, the fabric is just beautiful. The "triplets" love snowmen and they watch Frosty the snowman all the time. I added two boarders, a flannel back and quilted around all the snowmen. It turned out so cozy.

Laura made this cute flannel Grinch quilt with her daughters flannel pj's she was done wearing. Great recycling.

Mary made this cute wall hanging, you can interchange photos in the tulips.

I made my niece, who lives in sunny Florida this quilt for Christmas. I put tons and tons of "daisy" quilting on it (I don't think it shows in the picture) and she requested satin binding.

I found this fabric and made some (13) quilted table mats for Christmas presents for friends. With trying to "go green" I think this is a good reminder.

I made then in two color ways.
I'll see you Jan. 6th or 7th.

I spy my Christmas gift there! Thanks BTW! I am going to buy a CD player for my studio so I can listen to the music!

I have yours ready, but am still looking for the right box. Will try getting one at the post office tomorrow. Should I wait until you are on your way home to ship it?

Have a safe trip & fun with the kids. Love & merry Christmas to the both of you.

I just realized, your snowmen are the same fabric as a quilt Mel just did. I thought they looked familiar!
