I like my Christmas quilts to be used throughout the year, particularly in winter … Christmas Down Under is in the middle of summer, and often the quilts are kicked off the bed while Father Christmas is doing his rounds, so slightly Christmas colouring and maybe some stars, angels or wreaths would be my choice.
I have a folder of project files set aside for Christmas, and went looking for a design which was for every day of the year, and the first project i clicked on has just red and white … no green, so it is for those who follow any sporting team who wear red and white during their games.
Looking at these, I have had a thought … make enough blocks for a quilt top, then quilt them as you go, then put them together with some blocks facing the wrong way. Wonder if it would work as well in real life as it does in my head!
Not just any tree … it is the first of December, so Christmas will be here shortly, but it is the middle of the week, so time for a short retreat from whatever you should be doing to look at some Log Cabin designs … in Christmas colours of course.
Each year I hope to find a spare tree to decorate, and if I do I will print off a heap of Christmas themed quilt designs and hang them on it!
On second thought, I should print out twice as many as required so I can place them back to back!
Great game for Christmas parties … pick out the differences in similar designs.
Actually, that could be a great game anytime of year!
More Log Cabin quilt designs mid week, next week, and more Christmas quilt designs everyday until Christmas.
