Christmas Reveal: Quilts #2 and #3 The Christmas Quilts

It's time to share a few finished projects now that Christmas gifting is complete.  This year, I sent four quilts home.  The first quilt I gifted I discussed in this post.
I gave this quilt to my mother-in-law who has plenty of beautiful quilts of her own handiwork, but I knew she would appreciate this one...and she did!

The next quilt was this one:
The pattern is one of the Serendipity quilts by Missouri Star Quilt Company, a fast and fun quilt to assemble.

The fabric is primarily Christmas Spirit by Holly Taylor, one of the first jelly rolls of fabric I purchased when I began my quilting infatuation last year.   I had fun quilting this with loops and an occasional holly leaf.
 Keeping the holly theme in the fabric backing...
 I love how this little lap quilt came out!

With the remaining strips from the jelly roll (and a few other ones), I made this quilt following the pattern from Christa Quilts Jolly Jelly Roll quilt along.

 I even followed Christa's quilting suggestion using a wavy stitch on my domestic sewing machine.
I really must remember to use this quilting style more often!

So, those are the Christmas themed more to share!


  1. You have been a busy elf! Love those holly and berry quilting. Your family must have been thrilled to get these gorgeous handmade gifts for Christmas!

  2. These quilts look so wonderful. I love the quilting you did on each of them. So appropriate and fun. Thanks for sharing. I loved your reveal. ;)

  3. Wow!! I didn't realize you had done the Jolly Jelly Roll quilt until I just Googled it and your blog came up! LOVE IT!! I'm currently working on finishing mine up now and should hopefully have it done over the weekend :)
