After reading Pat's post, I decided to enter Sew Cal's Christmas Quilt Show. Click the button on my sidebar to get more details, look at some great quilts, and think about entering one of your quilts.
This is the first large applique project that I attempted. It was in 2004, and I also tried my hand at free motion quilting for the first time. The real kicker is that I made four of these - one for each of my girls. Each one is different in the fabrics used, and I left enough room to add the names of new family members on Santa's list.
This is a sampler quilt made out of Christmas fabrics, and was made as Christmas gift for daughter Kristin. I love to do sampler quilts by hand piecing, and this was a lot of fun.
And here's another entry - a penguin quilt. I had so much fun designing "clothes" for my basic penguins. It was a gift for granddaughter Krissy, and she loved it.
I'm not sure if this qualifies as a Christmas quilt, but this is a train quilt I made for Krissy. I had hosted a swap of licensed cartoon character fabrics, and used them for the engineer for this quilt. There is Dora and Diego, Pooh and Piglet, Snoopy and Scooby Doo. It was so much fun.
Sew Cal Gal is offering some great prizes for the winners, so hurry over there and enter.
