Meanwhile, enjoy the few pieces I picked out to share from my past Christmas quilting endeavors.
As a toddler, my daughter carried around one particular doll at all times.
She slept with it, fed it, bathed it, etc. She was quite a good "mother" to this doll.
That Christmas I made all her friends baby doll blankets from the scraps of other Christmas projects.
They were quick and fun as I strip pieced and simply quilted on the diagonals.
The "Stars" tree skirt also seen above was made for dear friends who live far away but are always near in our hearts.
Finally, "Santa" was a donation to The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative, AAQI. It was created from a preprinted cotton panel from Diane Knott framed with purple star fabric to bring out the purple tinted snow on the chimney and the twinkle in Santa’s eyes. Free motion quilting added texture and helped me practice this valuable skill. The purchase of "Santa" earned $45 for Alzheimer's research.
