Wintery Bliss

Are you staying warm? It's been a bit on the chilly side the past few days. I love the cold, don't you? No? maybe I'm just a little weird. Or a lot......
Hope you're all ready for Christmas. I'm not. Hmmm, guess I'd better get crack-a-lackin'! Someone has been busy though. Lots of people in fact. How do they do it? Maybe a time management class should be tops on my Christmas list, huh? Anyway, enough about me, you want to see the quilt! So, without further ado---
Lynn was first up with this gorgeously purple Sonja's Windows, by Candace Hassen. 


Hoffman fabrics offers this darling kimono quilt pattern on their website for free! It's called Masami, and it is really a fun quilt. 


Lastly, we have Lynn's Queen of the Nile. If you look closely you can see the queens. Love this pattern!


Next up was Sue, with her very first quilt! It's for her one and only granddaughter. It is so striking in its simplicity. Love. 


How cute is this Sesame Street quilt? This one is for a grandson. 


How about a little cheer for the Alma Mater? This Auburn-inspired Take 5 is going to make someone very happy.


Did you hear about The Missouri Star Quilt Company's Iron Quilter competition? Sue entered this bow-tiful quilt into the challenge! Good luck, Sue!


Janet was busy, busy whipping up a few stunning tree skirts and table toppers! 





Oh, and just a few festive stockings! 


That moment when you realize what is missing from this picture- the bow! At least that what Janet said. ;) Love this Twister wreath.


Linda won us over with this cute December mini quilt! Ho-ho-ho, Santa!


Linda must have been in the holiday mood this month! This is a great primitive Christmas wall hanging. 


Miss Wanda gave us a peek of her incredible Eleanor Burns' Delectable Mountains! This is such a wonderful pattern.


And guess who finished Amish with a Twist? That's right, it's Wanda! This is such a happy quilt, don't you think?


Thomas was a very busy bee last month. He made this practically perfect watermelon Take 5,


finished his Spin Cycle with aplomb,


created yet another fab Mondo Bag and, he got married! Congratulations, Thomas and Kathy!v We wish you many years of happiness. 


Marjorie made this gorgeous Christmas Ribbons quilt from Scrap Basket Surprises! 


Barb's little machine hummed along making place mat and napkin sets! These make great gifts, and they're quick and easy, too because you quilt as you go!


Lynne took Mary's Basket Sampler class, from the Jelly Roll Sampler book, and put her own spin on it with juicy, bright colors. One thing about Lynne, you can always count on her for a bright and cheerful quilt! 


This Lynn ( there are as many of them as there are Karens!) snapped together a Wee Woolies mini quilt by Kathy Brown and


wowed us with her patched kimono slippers! How comfy and cozy are those? 


Jane's X Factor quilt is unbelievably beautiful! The colors are so fun and bright. Love, love this!


Janet sneaked back in with her Indian Summer table runner! How on earth did she forget to share such loveliness?


One of Sherrie's picks at market was Cheryl Phillips' Simple Curves ruler. She made this Smiley-Frowny table runner using the pattern included with the template. Now that's a bargain!


So, what will be keeping our rotary cutters and sewing machines busy through December? A reprise of Stars Aligned made in the softest of cream, ice and caramel. You can barely see the stars in this quilt but they are there. It's the subtleties of this quilt that makes it so pretty. 


I cannot wait for January to see how everyone interpreted their quilt!
