Christmas Quilt

 I made the first Christmas quilt and tapestry for us this year. 

I was avoiding having a seasonal fabric because I don't have much sense of seasonal festivals/events such as Christmas, Halloween, and Easter. When my quilty friend gave me a box of Christmas fabric scraps that included a bunch of incompleted blocks, I was kind of happy since Christmas-themed fabrics generally have a very festive mood and are gorgeous, but didn't know what to do with them. I don't make Christmas gifts like many quilters do. I got the box in January this year so it was under a chair in my craft room almost for a year. 

The religious theme is not appropriate as comfort quilts, so I thought I would enjoy the festive mood, especially I was kind of tired of making kits of comfort quilts from donated fabrics after 17 kits of 45"~50"x 60"~70" including backings (almost always need to sew together. I miss a large piece of backing). It took 2 weeks+.

So I googled a pattern I may like to have inspirations and ended up making stars.

I first made a quilt (48x60).

Then, made a tapestry that can be hung on the front door instead of a wreath. Each block is smaller than which of the quilt. It measures 24"x40". I like the results and my husband, too :)

I am now making the next tapestry for the door that would be hung after Christmas :)

Wish you all happy holidays and a new year of 2022.
