My Christmas Quilt

I've been contacted by my Christmas Ornament Swap partner - hi Natima!!!

Natima mentioned that she was working on her christmas quilt on the weekend. Click over to her blog and check out what she's been up to.

It got me thinking about my Christmas quilt.

This is it and it will be hanging on our wall again come the first of December. This is the 'A Christmas Story' quilt from Anni Downs at Hatched and Patched. I bought the book and the fabric, but at the time I didn't really "do" applique. So it took me a while to get started with this quilt, but once I got going I just fell in love with needle turn applique. I really love Anni's whimsical style. So I had the quilt finished in time for last Christmas. I didn't do the little stitcheries for each of the 'tongues' around the border, but I just might get them done for next year!

What are you working on for christmas?

Nat sent us over. Welcome to the quilt blogging world. Lucky you to have her as your Christmas swap partner, because she does some amazing work. I love your appliqued Christmas quilt. Great job!

Hi Nedra

Thanks so much for your welcome and kind comments. This blog world just opens so many doors and windows, doesn't it?

Your friend, Ann's "thimbles" are fantastic. How lovely to have a friend (x2 with Roger) with whom you can really be yourself. Her quilts are great. I'm really loving scrappy quilts at the moment, so her show and tell was quite a feast! Thanks for sharing.

Take care, Sue

Hi Sue,

Welcome to blog land.....you'll meet the nicest people here :0).
Nat sent me over to say Hi :0).
Your Christmas quilt is adorable...I am working on one from a group called quiltvillechat.....its a yahoo group that does mystery quilts with Bonnie K. Hunter. If you have ever wanted to do a mystery quilt we are going to start a new one the day after Thanksgiving ( here in the states its a week from Thurs.). So join the group and grab some fabric and have some fun with us.

Happy Sewing,
Kim from NY
