Scrappy Christmas Quilt


I stayed up late last night finishing piecing this Christmas quilt together.  It is going to be for Zerah.  Last summer I participated in a Scrappy Christmas Block exchange, and I am just now getting all the blocks put together.   I received six blocks from the exchange, and I made two last summer with one more added last night.  I like how bright and happy it is!  It is 46"x46".

I have been thinking of the Christmas traditions I want to start with my family, and I want to make a concerted effort to start establishing the ones passed down to me from my family and new ones I develop as well.  One tradition I want to start is having a Christmas quilt that you sleep under starting Thanksgiving night leading up to Christmas day.  I think that will be a fun way to start anticipating the season each year.  I don't know if I will have this one finished by Thursday night (probably not), but hopefully it will be finished during this holiday season.:)

I need to finish making my Christmas presents, too!  I have one almost finished and several more to go.

It is very happy and bright, Audrey, perfect for your precious girl.

I, too, believe traditions are a beautiful celebration of love and living. I, too, believe it's important that you have some of your own to gift your children.

Enjoy a wonderful Thanks giving!

Great idea! I'm making a Christmas tree skirt, and I'm going to have lots of scraps left over. I think a Christmas quilt is in order (in all my spare time!).
