Bonnie at Quiltville is hosting a link up today of Christmas quilts. I have a few to share with you today. I will go from gorgeous to horror so you’ve been warned!
First is this lovely antique quilt I purchased at an estate sale last summer.
This next quilt was one of the first that I quilted on my first long arm machine. I don’t remember the fabric line but this started life as a fat quarter bundle that Mr. Wonderful bought for me. I love that it is Christmas without being in your face Santa stuff.
This last one was made a long time ago, as in nearly 20 years ago. It is pretty scary from a technique standpoint. It is one in my series of PMS quilts. The blocks themselves are not bad (they came from a guild block exchange) but I was clearly having a bad day when I pieced it.
You may think it is a poor photo causing this hot mess to look crooked. Actually, it is the miracle of photography making it look this good. I think it is a good 2″ longer on one side. These rows run downhill at such a slant, it is a wonder they haven’t slid right off the quilt. I remember the frustration and hormonal cloud during the piecing. I whacked things off to make them fit. I added pieces where things looked too short. I just wanted a finish, you know? Anyway, my kids loved it and every year, this bit of humility hangs in my bathroom during the Christmas season. No closeups on this one. I wouldn’t do that to you.
