Welcome to my day of the Christmas In July, (then and now) Blog Hop! First I want to thank Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for the chance to participate in this fabulous Blog Hop! Christmas is my favorite holiday and I love to decorate, it starts the day after Thanksgiving.
As soon as a signed up for this hop, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I have wanted to make it for years, ever since this book came out. It is called Holly Baskets and it was the big quilt on the cover.
I bought the fabric right after the book came out, the ticking and other fabrics, and the whole bag of fabric has been residing in the top of my closet all these years. This quilt was designed by Gerry Kimmel-Carr. This is my version. I wasn't able to quilt it as my machine is in the shop still for warranty repairs.
Last year for the Christmas In July Blog Hop I made this Christmas Tree Skirt for my sister.
These are some of my other Christmas quilts, including this one I completed last year.
And two of my very first Christmas quilting projects back when I first learned to quilt. I've been quilting since 1995.
Be sure and check out the other projects from the other blogs. I've included the entire list below. Thanks again to Carol @ Just Let Me Quilt for hosting this fantastic blog hop!
