We have a tradition that nothing Christmas happens until after the Thanksgiving meal. In the Old Days, when I had children at home, we’d sing Christmas carols that afternoon, a cluster of us at the piano. Now, we turn on iTunes and listen to the songs while we do the dishes. This is Christmas Star, #80 on my 100 Quilts List, in case you want to read more about it.
This morning I got out all the Christmas quilts that have been in the cupboard for a year. It’s nice to see them again. This is Star Mother’s Youngest Child, #108.
This was about the first Christmas display quilt I made and I called it Christmas Wall Hanging. It’s label-less, but is #15 on my 100-Quilts List, having been made twenty-two years ago. I have made other Christmas quilts, but they’ve been passed on to others.
I also found time to make a little pouch for a granddaughter, at her mother’s request. It’s Noodle Head’s Wide Mouth Pouch, but I made it a little bit taller.
Hope you enjoy getting reacquainted with your Christmas quilts, too!
