Christmas Quilt Show

I decided to enter the virtual quilt show of Christmas quilts that SewCalGal is hosting. 

I started looking for Christmas quilts that I had made and realized I really haven't done all that many.



 This quilt is called 3-D Rail Fence and I did it when I was a member of Strip Club.  
It's a very simple quilt.  One where the fabric makes the quilt.  
The reds are much redder and the blacks blacker than they appear in the photo.


The  next little quilt is from an old book -  Scrap Quilting Made Easy.  
Sometime you find the best things in old out of print books.

It's called Scrap Bag Snail's Trail and is only 23x23.



The next one is not really a quilt it's a table topper made of wool.
It's called Seven Santa's from the pattern  All Through the Night.
I really enjoy appliqueing with wool nothing to turn under.


That's my entry for the Quilt Show.  You should check out SewCalGal's blog and go on the virtual quilt show. There are lot's of quilts to inspire you and get you in the  Christmas spirit.
