Christmas Quilt Show

The Christmas Quilt Show is here stop over at Quilting Tutorials and have a look.

This little quilt is my entry; when it comes to Christmas I am pretty traditional. It is 26 inches square and the log cabin blocks are 5 1/2 inches. I bought a panel with 3 inch square motifs and all the fabrics at the NQA show in Columbus 2 or 3 years ago. There was a little quilt made up in the booth but no pattern (or at least I didn't  buy one) by the time I got home I couldn't remember how it was made so I made up my own setting. There are 16  little motif centers, all different and there may have been some others that were different as well. It will hang in my sewing room on the bulletin board when I get all the Christmas quilts out and around.


I am not sure how many of the little squares I had left but I made a bunch of small things and gave them away. The only 2 things I still have are this  cover for my neck pillow and the 5 x 11 mini quilt below which I think will go in the narrow space between a small wall cabinet and a shelf inside my front door. I wanted to use up all of the left over pieces  and I think I came close.
 I usually get out my Christmas dishes and all my quilts the week end after Thanksgiving; they stay out until New Years Day. I am a little behind this year but I will catch up soon.
 I guess this could be considered a winter quilt but to me it is Christmas. In January I have snowmen and that is winter!

What a sweet way to use those little fussy cuts - and they are just beautiful. These pieces look so much like our homestead/farm during the season.

Hey, that is a really neat quilt. I love the feature blocks and the wreath layout of it. Very cool binding, too. It must be extra wide?
