Christmas Quilt Show 2010

Have y'all heard about the annual Christmas Quilt Show? It's being held at Sewcalgal's blog. Go check it out!

I have 2 Christmas quilts and since you can feature more than one, I am gonna go for it!

This quilt has been on my blog before but it is one made for my husband's grandma.  Her only child (my father-in-law) was born in the early 1950's so I thought she'd love these sweet little kids in Alexander Henry's Angelcakes fabric.  I mixed it up with some moda dots, some P&B plaid, some Alexander Henry Petit Fors, and some basics.  It's a disappearing 9 patch. 


And then we have a Christmas tree quilt.  I found this pattern at about.com and I loved it.  I threw in every bit of green I had.  You'll find wal-mart fabrics, Hobby Lobby stuff, Joann's stuff, LQS stuff, and even flea market fancy.  It's a smallish lap size.  I really really like this quilt!


And I backed this in a Peanuts fabric because my kids loooove some Peanuts. 
And I'll give you 2 guesses as to what side they prefer....

If you guess the side that took mama hours to piece, of course you would be wrong! :)

  26. Very cute Christmas Quilts. Of course, as I also love Peanuts, I really love your choice of backing. I truly don't remember ever seeing Peanuts fabric, but I'm sure it is something I've just overlooked. Just delightful.

    Thanks for sharing in the Christmas Quilt Show.

  28. I'm an adult and still love Snoopy (I think it's an illness, really) but I love the tree on the reverse side. I'm so putting this on my to-do list. :)
