Christmas Quilts

Today, I want to show three of my Christmas quilts. None of these are quick projects but they are a part of the decorations at my house.

12 5 16 Santas workshop Christmas Quilts

Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop is machine embroidered with a couple of fun touches. Santa’s beard and the fur on his hat are white synthetic fur and his apron is faux leather. Those two additions and all the details make this a fun little wall hanging. The embroidery collection is an old one from Pfaff but I don’t remember the name.

Santa and His Reindeer

This little wall hanging has a special spot in my heart. I found the center with Santa and his reindeer unfinished in the things I inherited from my mother-in-law.  She had them fused in place but that was all. I blanket stitched around them and added the borders.

The red border is corduroy. The quilting in that border says “ho ho ho.” In the green border the quilting says Merry Christmas in several different languages.

My Christmas Table Runner

The third quilt is new this year. Sara Gallegos, host of My First Quilt on QNN TV, is my friend. I made this table runner for her when she was getting ready to film the first set of segments for the show. She used this quilt to talk about keeping all the different pieces of a quilt organized. Check out that segment of My First Quilt  or if you would like to see all the segments in the series, look here.

Sara will be here next week to film another series for My First Quilt. I can hardly wait for her to arrive.
