Two finished quilts

I finished two new quilts. The first one is this jelly roll quilt I started more than a year ago and the second quilt is a fast charm square quilt. I really like this jelly roll quilt. Not only do I like the colors and the design, but I also like the simple white border and colored binding. I washed the quilt twice and it is becoming softer with each wash.
I had just enough of this green flowery fabric for the backing.
Here is my other finished quilt. I wanted to make something for the winter season and it had to be a fast pattern. I sewed together charm squares, most of them are Christmas and winter snowflake prints. I also added a few random squares to break up the green and red Christmas pallet. I wanted a quilt I can use after Christmas too.
I pieced several pieces of brown and tan fabric together to make the backing.
The quilt is bundled up under my gingerbread Christmas tree.
The neutral cream border and the peach and blue charm squares make the quilt usable for Christmas and winter. 
Dear husband's golf clubs behind the chair. I dare not move his precious golf clubs.  In exchange he tolerates my ever changing decorating style. I try to stay with a "less is more" approach, but often I can go overboard with my quilts and decorating.
Wishing you all a merry Christmas and happy new year.
