The holidays would not be the same without quilts. There are quilted items all over my house, but we have the special Christmas ones out just once a year.
My hubby and I have been using this Christmas tree skirt, made by my mom, since 1994. It’s adorned every tree, each year we’ve been married.
This Christmas tree wall hanging was also made by my mom and given to us the same year as the tree skirt. Here it is hanging in or downstairs.
This is the one and only Christmas quilt I’ve made that is larger than a wall hanging! We put it away during the year and bring it out at Christmas. This is our third year to enjoy snuggling under the quilt I dubbed “Homes for the Holidays.”
This awesome stuffed Santa being snuggled by Marie was made by my mom for the first Christmas my hubby and I spent together.
His place of honor is the rocking chair. He proudly sits there every year, often with a kitty in his lap. He looks pretty good for a 19 year old Santa!
Speaking of Santa, he took a ride down my street earlier this week!
Stop back by every day between now and Christmas as I share crafts and ornaments that are special to me and my family.
Do you have special quilted items just for Christmas? Tell me in comments, I’d love to hear!

I wish I had more Christmas quilted projects to display. Every year, it seems, I buy the latest Christmas fabric intending to make something fabulous. But I run out of time and it never gets made.
Loved seeing yours.
I’ve made plenty of Christmas projects, but I always give them away! You know there is a project (or two!) waiting in that Christmas fabric of yours. My quilt took several years to complete, so never give up hope of making something for next year! 🙂
I swapped 3 inch blocks on flickr one year, and made a Christmas calendar with them! 12 of us each made 12 blocks of 2 different patterns so we had a total of 24. I stitched them into pockets and made it into a wall hanging for treats for my 10 year old and I! Every day in December he brings me my chocolate and eats his own! It’s been great for bonding! (And should I point out that I get chocolate every day?!))
What a wonderful tradition…plus chocolate! Sounds absolutely wonderful. 🙂
I am curious how you store your Christmas quilts when they are not in season. I am afraid to put mine in the attic, but I’m not sure if that is irrational.
I don’t think that is at all irrational! I store mine on a shelf in a coat closet. It doesn’t go in my garage with the rest of the decorations.
