Charming Christmas Cardinals Charming Christmas Cardinals

The green and red paisley fabric had to come home with me. I knew I’d want to make a Christmas quilt with it. I also collect cardinal fabrics and a Christmas quilt seemed to be the place to use one of that stash. Made from a Quilt in a Day pattern called “How Charming” by Anne Dease.

Friends for Christmas (Amanda Ryan) Friends for Christmas (Amanda Ryan)
By: Amanda Ryan, United Kingdom

This design is from from Lynette Anderson’s book Friends for Christmas. It was my first attempt at applique, and I was a little daunted at first, but once I got going I loved every minute of it.

Scrappy Christmas Scrappy Christmas
By: Julie Fukuda, Japan

My poor old sofa, having made it through nearly 40 years, six kids, and numerous pets, needs something to cover the worn spots and protect it from future wear.
Looking through my box of holiday fabrics, I decided to see if there was enough to reward the sofa with a Christmaspresent. Sure enough.

    Wow — another week of stellar quilts and a tough decision! You do such a great job with this; thank you so much!! Btw–I clicked on the cake and it brought me back to this post. Is it supposed to do that? It could be me. LOL! Merry Christmas! :)

    I would love to vote, but there is not a button to vote. Are you having trouble with your site? I know several others are having the same issue. Please help!!

  4. Mishka says:

    Hi Connie,

    No, there isn’t any problem with my site. Are you seeing the voting results? If you are, that means someone else with your IP address already voted. This happens often in shared work environments. You may wish to try voting from home instead. Also, you do have to scroll to the very bottom of the list to see where you vote.

    Cheers,
    Michlee
