A Few of my favorite Christmas Quilts

Sew Cal Gal is having a Christmas Quilt Show for bloggers! So if you love Christmas like I do go check out all the beautiful quilts & more! Here are a few of my favorites, I made these when I was still living in Montana.

Fly Home for Christmas:
 
 I think this pattern was from an older (2000 or earlier) McCall's or M. Quick Quilts. The poinsettia quilting was done on my embroidery machine. Machine pieced & quilted by me. Most of my family was living far enough away to have to fly home so the name seemed appropriate...





Christmas Holly

Machine pieced, quilted & appliqued by me.
This is another pattern from an older quilt magazine. I can't tell you which as when we moved I donated most of them to the care center & quilt guild ladies. 







Cardinal Christmas:
I've always love Cardinals & when I saw this pattern I just had to make. Just wish I could remember
who designed it. Somewhere along the way I misplaced it.
It is machine pieced, quilted & appliqued by me.

Those quilts are really beautiful. I can't choose the one I like best.

I like all of them - the last one though I also made about 4 years ago. It is called "Cardinal Feathered Star" I got it out of a soft backed book called "Quilted for Christmas" published by That Patchwork Place. I don't know if that is where you got it. I machine pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted mine.
