I AM A Collector from Quilts + Color

Not all my collections are out at the same time.
Some of them are too meaningful to get rid of
I put them away to be resurrected in a new way at a later time.

I have had these houses under my tree for 33 -34 years. They were gifts from my son Greg and daughter in law Julie. Greg found a lady who painted them when they lived in Oregon. The only signature on the bottoms is Amber 1985 or 1986. They had been stored away for years.
This year I decided they would be prefect under this tree ...

12 Days of Christmas, Day 11 from Quilt Doodle Doodles...


Day 11

Welcome to the eleventh day of the Quilt Doodles 12 Days of Christmas. I've got another fun project for you!
A couple of fun snowman projects for you today. They are both mini quilts that can be hung on a split wire hanger from ackfeld or displayed on a tabletop. Living in Minnesota, I have my snowmen on display thru March, no kidding. We have snow for that long, in fact I remember a snowfall in May! (Back when I was in high school!) It was one of those wet, heavy snows. I went to school in ...

Favorite Florida Christmas Trees from Quilts + Color

christmastree8editedcard2
These are not typical Christmas tree colors. Yet they are perfect colors for the great room decor.
[flamingo+tree+fully+decorated%5B5%5D]
I enjoyed acquiring the glass ornaments for my flamingo tree and also enjoy seeing it decorated. You DO know I collect tasteful flamingos!

[gardenclubchristmashometour+%282%29%5B4%5D]
These three magenta trees that added the holiday spirit to the master bedroom now reside in my middle son’s pool house.
Over the years I have decorated so many trees. I have not documented each and everyone with photos.

Christmas Tree Quilt

Christmastime is full of magic, even for quilters! Don’t believe me? Watch as Jenny transforms a simple pack of green 10-inch squares into TWO gorgeous Christmas tree quilts! If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is!

She starts with a cute modern chevron, but be sure to watch all the way to the end, because (spoiler alert!) just when you think the fun is over, Jenny whips out an adorable pinwheel version as well! When you are finished watching, be sure to comment which tree you like best!

early darkness . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Daylight savings time ends tonight!  To that end, this cartoon made me laugh, laugh, laugh!
It's funny ... but it's also very true, no?  Be sure you turn your clocks back ... and enjoy that extra hour of sleep in the morning! It's a little ironic to me that we get that extra hour of sleep on the morning that sun rises an hour earlier.  Why can't we get it right?!  LOL!

The girls were SO cute as the fairies from Sleeping Beauty!  
Aren't they just precious?! Of course, they were the tip of the iceberg . . .

Finished with Decorations from Joanie's Trendy Quilts











I found the pattern for The Tall Christmas Tree in a quilt store in Kentucky. I fell in love with it at first sight sensing that I had to have it!  How unique I thought! That was three years ago.

I came home with the pattern and began shopping at Thousands of Bolts - Only One Nut. On their website they have a Designers Palette where you place fabric swatches from their inventory so you can mix and match. I played with the design palette until I found the perfect fabric for my tree.

If you google "The Tall Christmas Tree ...

Motivated by Updating the Expiring Date on Credit Card from Joanie's Trendy Quilts


 

After a long break I am back again. It was due to receiving an email from GoDaddy.com informing me it was time for me to renew the date on my credit card for my blog domain name. Well if I was going to pay to renew I better start blogging again. If I am going to blog again I needed to work on my quilt to have something to write about.


In December I found a couple of weeks to work on the Christmas Tree quilt, but the unexpected occurred, my husband took his flight to heaven. Life has ...

Snow Scrolling and Tree Decorations from Joanie's Trendy Quilts

Happy Thanksgiving!! Hope all are enjoying your holiday? My turkey is seasoned and ready to be stuffed with cornbread stuffing. Yum!

While other preparations are done and few more to complete I thought I would take a break and show the progress on the Tall Trim Christmas tree. The branches all have been feathered stitched.  Now I am quilting scrolling snow.



In the evenings I have been hand stitching ornaments while watching NetFlix - The West Wing and Longmire, both entertaining. I like keeping my hands busy. It helps keep them from wanting to pick up snack food.

The ornaments are ...

Handmade Christmas Stockings from A Ditchin' Time Quilts


This stocking was fun to make and it only took a few hours.  Using some of my mom's old buttons from her collection will make this gift for my niece special because she will appreciate some of the parts coming from her (God rest her soul!).  

Thanks to Nancy from her Etsy Shop DoSmallThingsWLove for the pattern.  Go here to purchase your pattern.

I used painters cloth for the stocking base and lined the front of the bags with batting for weight.  





These are my design.  They were made for a brother and sister.  Elleigh and Remington (Remi ...

Thinking abouut creativity from Elsie Quilts

This time of year is busy for many people, and it can become stressful. I'm thinking that if I look at all that needs to be done, including those extra projects that might be 'nice' to do, and consider them as part of my God-given creativity, they drop off that 'chore' list and go on the 'fun' list. 

Since our kids left home, particularly the youngest one who loved decorating the tree, I've not had much enthusiasm for it. However, a couple years ago someone invited me to the local Festival of Trees and I was impressed by ...

Christmas Forest and Tree Trims from Virtual Quilter

Christmas Forest and Tree Trims 4

Love the Snowman border … and since part of Australia had some snow last week, much more appropriate than usual.

Christmas Forest and Tree Trims 5

More virtual Christmas designs will be appearing here every day until Christmas Day as part of my conversion to EQ8 … all the Christmas theme project files will be converted by then … or that is the plan at this point.
