With that thought in mind, it occurred to me that I had several red and white quilts hanging in my closet, and wouldn't they look nice sprinkled throughout the house, bringing Christmas cheer and coziness to our holiday decor? Of course they would! Certainly they are not doing any good at all hiding in the closet. So let's have a look.
The quilts pictured above are 1-Thimbleberries' Christmas Confetti from the North Bay Quilts book; 2-Thimbleberries' Hourglass from the Cozy Cabin Quilts book; 3-My own creation of Ohio Stars; 4-My own creation of Jacob's Ladder; 5- Chock Full O' Charm in some warm fabrics by French General.
While I've been sifting through old posts I came across yet another red and white quilt that I need to locate and add to the list, bringing the total to seven. It is Stars and Stepping Stones which I made back in 2011. This quilt makes me think of Grandma because she used the Stepping Stone block in so many of her quilts. She was also a big fan of stars, so naturally, this is a gentle reminder of her. I hand-pieced the individual blocks, but sewed the top together by machine.
The quilt serving as a tree skirt is September Stars, another Thimbleberries pattern. I made it in 2011-12 with French General fabrics. I grabbed that picture, too, so I'd have them all together here in one post.
That's it! All the Christmas-y quilts I could locate. It sure will make the house feel festive. And I will get to enjoy the beauty of all my red and white quilts.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
