Almost Christmas

I delivered the last of the Christmas quilts today – actually that isn’t quite correct since I have one more finished quilt in my car, waiting for it’s owner to come to town from South Carolina.  Next year I swear I am going to finish all the customer quilts in November and not work on them in December!!!!!

I am changing my scheduling of customer quilts and hopefully can stay on top of it better next year.

Here is a Christmas quilt of mine from several years ago.

It is a small wall quilt and I actually pieced it about 20 years ago in Australia.  I remember taking a class where this was one of the projects.  I appliqued the tree on the background and it sat for several years – it was really ugly and the fabric is not a very good quality.  A couple of years ago, I made the yo-yo’s and sewed them on with buttons.  It was somewhat improved.  I then quilted and bound it.  It is currently hiding hanging in the downstairs bathroom.

I didn’t get a lot of decorations out this year but did put up some quilts and a small tree.  It was all I could handle with all the customer quilts to work on.



  1. Melinda, this is such a sweet little piece! I wouldn't hide it away!! :)
