Christmas Quilts

I did do a bit of Christmas decorating this morning. I put up my Christmas Sampler in the living room.
Believe it or not Tonya helped me pick out fabrics for this (which included a Mary Jo's roadtrip!) and Bonnie did the quilting...makes it a good friend memory quilt. Also it has lots of my favorite blocks...

This little table-topper was made from holiday fabric scraps. The blocks finish at 3/4 inch.

Right now I am trying to finish up an 2009 Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt. My color pallet is a bit clearer in this one. It will go well with my Pennsylvania quilts!

I love sampler quilts--add Christmas to the mix and you have a winner!
Those are tiny blocks in your little table-topper. Can I admit that I toss pieces that small?
Your Caroline Christmas blocks are very nice. That will be a beautiful quilt.
