Quilts as Christmas gifts

Are you getting ready for the holidays?  I have not taken any Christmas decorations out. I love this red and white Churn Dash quilt I made a few moths ago. I can't wait to start decorating for Christmas. Did you notice my banner has a Christmas touch to it?...thanks Samm.! She is such a talented and sweet lady.
 This is a cute Christmas Irish Chain quilt pieced by Cindy. I quilted her quilt late one evening last week and I do apologize for the dark and blurry pictures.

 Panels are such a great idea for last minute gifts. I like to show a few panels I quilted for Marinelle.
 The first one is an Angel panel.

This is a nativity panel.
A cute panel for a red, white and blue theme for a beach house.

 This one is definitely for a hunter or will be so cute in a Log Cabin home.

There are so many cute baby panels in the quilt shops. I gave these two quilts away.

I used these soft Minkee fabrics for the back.
Happy Quilting until next time!

You've been busy!
Love the baby quilts...your quilting really makes them special.

I just enjoy Thanksgiving until the end of Nov. then I start getting Christmas decorations out....25 days of Christmas is enough for me so I don't rush it.

Happy sewing

Oulike banner. Ek self moet nog my Kersfees-goodies uitpak. Maar dit gebeur eers die 1ste Desember. Lieflike kwiltwerk en kwilte. Watter masjien gebruik jy?
