Christmas Quilt Show

SewCalGal is hosting a Christmas Quilt Show this week. What a wonderful way to showcase Christmas quilts. If you would like to participate, write a blog post about one or more of your Christmas quilts and submit it to SewCalGal's linky by November 21st.

I've worked on a few Christmas projects through the years, but this quilt has always been one of my favorites.

It's not finished, as I never had a large enough place to display this quilt. But since we have moved, I would love to finish it up and display it on one of the walls. Once the borders are sewn on it should measure approximately 60" x 70".

Thanks again to SewCalGal for hosting this Quilt show! Have a happy quilting day.

Wonderful quilt! I also have the problem with not having walls to hang quilts. An open floor plan is great, but not lots of walls to hang things. Would love to see this one with borders. How are you feeling? Are you able to drive and get around better? Have a wonderful Monday!

I have trouble with finding space to hang quilts also, I have too many built in bookshelves. I have one wall available where my wall hanging for Christmas will go and that is the only choice.

What a beautiful Christmas quilt. I use curtain rods to hang my quilts on the wall and it is cheaper than a quilt rack.

Great Christmas quilt and I love the design. If no wall space could put on back of couch course then everyone will have to sit on floor. It is lovely. Love Lois

What a great quilt....it says it all!!

Linda said...

Very clever. Even if you can't hang it on the wall - use it for a lap quilt during the holidays. Enjoy it.
