My Christmas Quilt



For years I’ve wished for a Christmas quilt.  Wall quilts – oh yes, I have plenty of those for the Christmas season.  Table runners, too.  But not a real put-it-on-the bed or fold-it-on-the-back-of-the-couch QUILT specifically for the Christmas season.

My problem was that I was waiting to be inspired, and I inevitably would get the inspiration early in December – that doesn’t work!  Good intentions – I could finish this in January and be ready for NEXT Christmas, but that never happened, either.

So when the current Scrap Squad project decided it would look good in green and red I was delighted.  I made Christmas Wreath --  in July --  and it is all finished and everything!!  Full story on the Quilty Pleasures blog.  Look here.  And while you are there, check out the rest of the Scrap Squad posts – our team has been making some great quilts this year.
