2011 Christmas Quilt Show

I saw this last year but I was to late to enter.  This year I am on time!  You can find out more information at SewCalGal's Blog,  You have time to enter also if you hurry and enter before the 2nd.  Oh that's tomorrow.  I am going to check out some pretty Christmas quilts after I finish this post, just follow the link above and find the links to other blogs.  The last count was 90, I am hoping to be number 91. 

My first quilt in my show is my Christmas Crossword Quilt.  I made this in 1997, I had only been quilting for 2 1/2 years at that time.  It hangs in the place of honor in my living room every Christmas.

Because I live in Arizona I have a fun Arizona Christmas themed wall hanging.  I think I made this in 2000, I forgot to label it, shame on me!

This is one I made last year,  I call it Moon Santa, but it is really Believe.  Actually I finished it on 1/22/11 the first one I made I gave away last year as a Blogoversary give away.

Believe or Moon Santa
I have so many fun Christmas quilts.  I can't post them all here but I wrote a post here about all the Christmas quilts I have and this was a couple of years ago.  I have more quilts now.  Christmas quilts are my favorite but I don't need any more but I have seen two more I want to make.   

Happy Stitching and a Merry Christmas!!
