Today is 3 months until Christmas. THREE MONTHS! I've already been busy working on Christmas themed quilts; they seem to come earlier and earlier every year.
Bea pieced this beautiful winter/Christmas quilt.

I love this quilt. Bea's embroidery is beautiful.
I love the silver thread she used here and there.
I spent 14 hours quilting this next quilt for Hamels.
14 very long hours.
And you can't even see all the quilting lol. But that was the whole point. I kept it simple; outlined the appliques; did a double piano key in the outer board. A simple ribbon stitch in the inner borders. My favorite part of the whole quilt is the various backgrounds in each block.
I followed the patterns in the block backgrounds. The bell block is cross-hatched; the wreath straight line quilted. So simple.
I love how the border turned out.
This is another Hamels quilt. I love snowman and this quilt I love.

Now before I start getting asked, on both these quilts I did quilt right over the embroidery. It's not something I like to do but it's entirely possible to do. It's all up to the quilter and what the quilt owner wants done to their quilt.
I love the backing for this quilt.
And my favorite block
So three months until Christmas. I think it's time to start thinking about what gifts I'm making this year.
13 love it too:
Beautiful Christmas/Holiday quilts. I prefer to quilt through my embroidery - don't like when it poofs up. :-)
It's fun to see the Snowmen A to Zzzz quilt because it's the one I'm working on now in redwork. :-)
Oooooo....The thoughts of the Christmas season is a bit much right now! Am just beginning to assess my thoughts...ha! That first quilt is awesome!! You did a right fine quilting job on all....congrats!!
Amazing! Those quilts are both so amazing! That's a whole lot of quilting. Beautiful work :-)
Beautiful! All the quilts shown are outstanding-I'm especially crazy about the last one. You do such amazing work!
P.S. I was Christmas crafting yesterday... I vowed not to get overwhelmed this Christmas SO I'm starting early!
What is the name of the Christmas themed quilt?
How can I get the pattern for the Christmas Sampler 2012 quilt?
It said when we clicked on the link we would get the pattern and I do not see anywhere to get the pattern. What’s the deal?
No pattern?? What's up? Am I missing it somewhere?
Where is the pattern?
I have spent hours trying to locate the countdown quilt. I can't find your phone number?? A site called Quilting Tutorials is stating Countdown is free just download! Doesn't appear to be the case. All I'm interested in is buying pattern, please.
I don't know of a quilt named Countdown. That was just the title of this blog post regarding counting down to Christmas.
Love the quilt
Do you sell the pattern for the A to Z Snowman quilt? If so how much??
