Deck the Halls

Another finish?! Tada!!When Juliann mentioned the 12 Days of Christmas BOM by
Temecula Quilt Co it reminded me that this was in my basted stack ready to be quilted.  This is yet another wool applique quilt designed by Cheri
I got it quilted and bound yesterday and on the wall today!!

I had to include my Danish Nisse in the photo. The holidays are here when I see them!!
A friend gave me this panel some time ago and it was the perfect size for the backing. I didn't do too great at getting it centered, but I like it.

Seriously, I'm warmed up on my machine quilting and the Bible quilt is next on the list..then I want to get my red and white one quilted before Christmas. That may not happen, but I can try.
Happy December!!

  2. Oh your quilt turned out so nice! I just love that and am wishing I would have made myself one. Very beautiful.
    I love how you have your quilts displayed too.

    Can't wait to see your red and white one. I am trying to get one finished up for Christmas too. I just love a good red and white quilt :)

  4. Another really cute quilt you finished. I can't believe you did all that in a day. looks great.
    Can't wait to see the others as you finish them. I am sure you will finish them.

  5. Instead of finishing my Christmas quilts like I should be, I am cutting out applique pieces for another quilt. I think I am going to have to set them aside and finish my "12 Days of Christmas". Your finish is looking good. I like that you added the fabric pieces in the upper left corner. I think mine needs something there too.

  6. What a great little primitive Christmas piece for the wall! I wish I could come watch you do the machine quilting. I could use some help warming mine up!
    Can't wait to see the finish on the Bible quilt!

  7. Your primitive quilts are so cute. Thanks for the link to Temecula's mystery quilt page. Even if I do not get the quilt made, I enjoy looking at each step published.
    Happy Stitching Lori!

    Can you tell us more about the Danish Nisse? did you make them?
    Yes, they would make any holiday brighter :0).

    Happy Sewing

  15. Your 12 Days of Christmas is wonderful. How nice to have one ready to finish so quickly. I don't remember seeing a few scattered blocks here and there, as on this pattern. Such a great "I have them, let's use them" look.
    Your cute little Danish Nisse look ready for mischief. Even with new finishes, it's comforting to have familiar things to bring out for the holidays.

  19. Love it! Those Cheri quilts are always a favorite. I didn't get around to making a new Christmas quilt this year. Guess that means I'll need to make two next year *lol*

  20. FABulous. Love your little dolls and the runner they are sitting on. I love seeing everyone's special holiday decor.
    Good luck on your R & W goal, I'm cheering your one from my corner of the world!

  22. Lovely quilt ... and as a Dane I had to smile when I saw your Danish Nisse ;-)
    Christmas in Denmark can not be celebrated with out lots of them. They are more important than Santa!

  28. girls, you are on a roll. Love the new finish - and the backing is awesome!

  29. I love the little blocks scattered on the quilt top, haven't seen those before, just remember you were going to do something to the empty spaces.
    The bible quilt turned out beautifully too! I am curious to the quilting you are going to do, it doesn't need much I think? It is great as it is!

  30. What a great little quilt - lots of color and so interesting! You will enjoy pulling it out every year to use for Christmas.
    Good luck with the quilting on your red and white.

  32. Ahh, a tradition. The Danish Nisse. I dig being "in" on a tradition. Any of those you share are a delight. Now your holiday piece really made me smile yesterday when I first peeked in. I was charmed by the little blocks you added. A truly unique and ever-lasting piece my friend.

  33. Love the quilt and the Nisse!

    Glad you are going to get that bible quilt finished - sounds like you have the determination to see a lot of finishes!

    I have just finished a UFO from 2009 - boy does that feel good!
