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.
