Christmas in...JUNE?

Hi there! It seems as though it has been forever since my last post. My computer has been on the fritz, it started working today so I am taking advantage of having the internet and giving you an update!
I've been busy busy busy, and I am loving every minute of it. I've noticed a trend starting...I've been working on a lot of Christmas quilts lately! I wanted to show you a few of them :D
This first one was pieced by quite a few ladies, it was a block exchange. Each of the blocks had to be Christmas themed, and include the red fabric with the words on it, which you will see in the close up shots of the blocks. This is Laurie's quilt.
 I had a lot of fun quilting this one. My main pattern was the curli-cues with some snowflakes thrown in here and there...then I did something different in each of the blocks!

 I had some fun putting some garland on this Christmas tree.

 I know I'm not supposed to have favorite blocks, but I really enjoyed the way the quilting turned out on this block!

Another Christmas quilt that I got to work on is this one made by Joann.

I couldn't decide what to do with the border, then this idea just came to me. Joann loved it and I think that I do too. What do you think of it?

 She did a wonderful job with her embroidery! These are 3 of my favorite blocks, but they were all beautiful! I went in a did a little something fun on each one of them.


And the sashing treatments got a little snowflake quilted into each of them.
This next quilt was made by Annette. She did a wonderful job with her embroidery as well!
Isn't it a beautiful wall hanging?
The little flowers on it were 3-d!
How fun is that? Great job on all of these lovely quilts ladies!
In other news, my daughter turned 5. Yup...5. I can't believe it. Happy birthday kiddo.

I did get to work on a Christmas quilt of my own. It was made as a sample for my local quilt shop. I had a lot of fun with this one. The fabrics are gorgeous! Great job Ms. Nancy Halvorsen.
I think that my favorite bit of quilting that I did on this quilt is on the snowmen. I quilted large "pebbles" onto them to make it look as though the snowmen were made out of snowballs!
The snowflakes were pretty fun to quilt as well.
Thank you for letting me share my quilting adventures with you. Happy quilting everyone.
