Are you playing along with Amy?
I thought I would share my Christmas quilts that Grandma Kath and I made.
Here is the story of how they came to be.
Last year I found out about Monica of The Happy Zombie.
I love her, her posts are so funny, and she knows her stuff.
Not to mention how CUTE her fabrics are.
Last year she posted her quilt called Rectangle Reverie.
I fell in love with it, I had been buying red and white Christmas fabric for years.
When I saw Monica's quilt I knew that I was finally going to put my collection to good use.
At this same time Grandma Kath wanted to make quilts for her daughter's.
She has never made a quilt and wanted to learn how.
I figured that this would be an easy one, with no corner's to match.
Since the pattern calls for ten fat quarters, and I had ten half yard pieces,
we made two red ones. Then headed down to our friendly neighborhood Joann's.
When we got there we found all the Christmas fabrics on sale 90% off,
add with Kath's teacher discount, are you kidding me!!!
Kath liked the Debbie Mum's best, so that is what we got for the other two.
Here is the back
My little back patch with all the fabrics from the front.
I love it and can't wait to make some more.
Here is the quilting, Picnik didn't like my pictures this morning, so I couldn't highlight it.
The red ones got snow flakes.
The Debbie Mum's got holly berries and stuff.
I am so happy with how they turned out.
Go on over to Amy's blog and see what everyone's been up to.
