It's Beginning to look a Little Like Christmas!

Yesterday we had an ice storm so I went to work for a short time then came straight home and spent the day taking down fall decor and starting my Christmas/winter decor. 
I'm sure you've seen these quilts before, but I enjoy revisiting them so I hope you will too.


Here's a lighted cut-out we got from Ikea a couple of weeks ago. It is so cute!

 I start by slinging the larger quilts over the banister. behind them is a pile of little quilts,  wall hangings, and wool applique.
 Guest bedroom. Simple decor as the red quilts get all the attention in here. The 12 days of Christmas designed by Cheri hangs above.
 I was so excited to get my red and green one back on my bed. I love it! The Kansas Troubles quilt ended up going downstairs.
 This "Let it Snow" quilt usually takes center stage downstairs. This year I can enjoy it when I wake up in the morning and lay my head down at night.
 I cannot remember when I finished this as I didn't sign it! I think it was late 2013. I don't love it that much and plan on giving it away this year.
The top of the table is decorated now as well, mostly with candles.

The little quilt was made by Dorothy R. I LOVE it!


WARNING: If a ribbon is wrapped around your candle it is best to remove it before lighting the candle!

Have you started to decorate? We don't have a tree yet, but will soon.

  9. Wow, so amazing! You have really inspired me to make a red and white quilt and get back to my red and green. I have decorated and pulled out the Christmas quilts but I sure don't have so many. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Gorgeous! You inspire me to be better prepared for decorating next Christmas by making some red and green quilts! I've only ever made one Christmas quilt, and it's still just a top. :-/

    Love the Nisse in their little sweaters; they look cute on Cascadia. Remind me, did you make them?

  16. That is a fun lighted cut-out. I keep thinking I'll get to Ikes someday, but maybe it is best that I don't. : )
    Beautiful quilt decor for the holidays. Your home seems so inviting--even the quilt you don't love is very cute.
    The candle is scary. Had a friend who lost their dwelling due to a candle left burning. Made me a convert to fake candles for decor, though I love the real thing.

    1. Oops, meant Ikea, not Ikes. Though Ike may have a great place, too. : )

  18. I always love seeing your home for the holidays, so many beautiful pieces and arrangements.
    This year I am going to make a list of things I want to make that would make my house more warm looking. Right now it is more of a cluttered miss mash of things, lol.

  21. Just beautiful, Lori! Love all the quilts and decor! Now I'm feeling the need to make red/white and red/green quilts! We're just beginning decorating, boxes all over the place at this point!

  23. Love seeing all your pretty decorations. I can't burn candles with Dh's allergies. I think I need to make more Christmas themed quilted items...

  24. Funny. I scrolled your pictures then went back and read the writing with each. Yea I know I'm weird. I laughed because the quilt/wall hanging you don't like and want to give away was my favorite one. Different folks, different tastes! All your quilts are lovely but that one speaks to me.

  28. So many beautiful quilts and stitcheries! And your little quilt you don't like so much is adorable...but I bet one of your loved ones will be pleased to receive it. Tomorrow I will get out the tree and other decorations. I've gotten out the quilts but nothing else - rainy weather has kept us from going to the storage building to get everything. But in a day or two I'll be ready! blessings, marlene

  31. I wish I had a bannister to hang some quilts over. They all look so gorgeous. I also wish I could sleep under some red and green quilts at Christmas but it's so darn hot I can hardly stand even one sheet.

    Your Scandinavian Christmas quilt is not even 1 year old and you want to give it away; lucky person who will receive it.
