Christmas Quilt Show

The Christmas Quilt Show at SewCalGal is just too fun, and of course I had to be a part of it.


The weather has been unseasonably warm this month and extremely dry.  We are waiting for some SNOW and lots of it!  Hopefully we will see some tonight!  In the meantime, this is my snowman quilt.









I had quite a time with the wind trying to get this photographed.  I stitched the blocks when I was on bed rest with my son.  I finally finished putting the quilt together a couple of years ago.  My son is 11 now, but you know how it goes when the baby arrives, there isn't always a lot of time to sew.  I have such happy memories when I get this quilt out.


And what would Christmas be without Benny?  He loves his Santa suit...I think because he knows if he sits nicely he gets a treat.

Make sure you visit the Christmas Quilt Show.  There are so many beautiful quilts to see!  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Wow - fantastic stitchery. :) I'm such a sucker for snowmen since we get no snow here in Florida. They really help make the season feel Christmasy for me.
