Winter quilts





The rest of the Christmas Decorations came down last weekend. It is really one of my least favorite things to do...the house always seems so forlorn! And there are so many to put away! I only have myslef to blame.....love my Snowmen and Santas. I am leaving out a couple of my "winter" quilts for at least another month.
I saw a darling little snowman door handle decoration on Mama Pea Quilts blog, and it reminded me that I have that pattern in my "To Do" notebook. Actually, I have two binders full of patterns I would love to do someday, and it is doubtful that it will ever be empty!

I have decided to get a head start on Christmas 2010, so I have started stitching this adorable little piece that I found on Gail Pan's blog...you should check her out. She has lots of fun quilts and stitchery pieces.

This quilt hangs in my dining room. It is the "Winter Quilt" from the book "Snowbound" by Jerry Kimmel, Linda Brannock, and Jan Patek. I made it about 15 years ago, it was one of my first attempts at hand applique and it is hand-quilted by me. It is a special quilt that comes out at Christmas time and stays up until the end of February.

Hi Sharon, Love all your snowmen. I too cherish those quilts that I have actually handquilted myself. Thanks for your comment about the Saturday Block clubs. I have only participated in 2 since I seem to have a huge stack of quilts that I know I want to make already and I probably won't live long enough to make them all!

Kathie, I wish I could share the Snowman wallhanging pattern with you, but I made it 10 years ago, borrowed the pattern from a friend, so I don't have it to share. And I cannot think of who put this pattern out...if it comes to me, I will let you know!
