How Many Christmas Quilts Do You Have???

While talking to a friend at work about finishing my Christmas decorating, I told her I only had to hang my Christmas quilts. So she asked how many do I have. Well I was a little surprised to see how many I really do have. You know how it goes. You make one here and you make one there. You don't remember how many you have. Then you see another one you like and you make that. They all aren't big quilts, only 1 of those. The rest are all little wall hangings. Some were class sample for paper piecing classes or machine applique classes. So here are the pictures. How many do you count?

Here is the big one, Made in 1997. I started quilting in the Summer of 1995.

Here are some little ones. The one on the left was my first Christmas one, made in Dec of 1995. The other four were all class samples.

The three Wise Men was a class sample, the two in the middle were gifts and the Hawaiian applique is my only hand quilted piece I have ever completed.

Here are the three I have at work that decorate my cubical, the cactus was a machine applique class sample.

And of course you need to know how many days are there until to Santa comes.

Last but not least are the ones I'm working on now, the Winter Wonderland 9 Patch Pizzazz which was a class sample and my Festive Santa. I made him last year for our daughter Kierra. It had started out for me, but I gave it to her instead. So now he will be done for me soon. I think I have enough!

Boy Mary, you have alot. I'm still working on 12 Days of Christmas. I have my other BOM 12 days hanging in my sewing room and one on my chair in the family room. There are several more around but not as much as you have. I remember the Nutcraker quilt.

Wow, you do have a lot of Christmas quilts! I only have one, but it's rather a big lap quilt. I was looking at some Christmas fabric the other day but then said to myself, "Really, how many Christmas quilts do you need?" LOL! Guess I could stand to make a few more. : )
PS, there's a pic on mine on my blog too.
