Midwinter Christmas continues

Some of you asked to see more of the Christmas quilts I took to Pinestream Quilters last weekend.  

Well, first up was my Oh! Christmas Tree quilt designed by Wendy Williams.  You can read more about it here.  I love this quilt because it really does represent Christmas in New Zealand and Australia.  It's all bright and summery, and that's how our Christmases are here (even though I used snowflake fabric for my background). 

I loved doing all the wool felt applique.

It's hand quilted with Aurifil of course!

I also took along Flocks by Night, another wool felt applique quilt designed by Wendy Williams.  You can read more about it here.  I loved appliqueing the trees in this scene.  

I used Aurifil lana wool to applique some of the trees down

My Holiday Homies quilt was still up on the wall in the spare room, and I was just going to leave it there until Christmas, but I made an exception and took it down so I could show the ladies on Saturday. You can read more about it here.  I designed this one myself because I wanted to use the quirky animals in Tula Pink's Holiday Homies range.    

And finally, I showed my Holiday Patchwork Forest quilt designed by Amy Smart.  You can read more about this quilt here.  

You've possibly realised that my Christmas quilts are all small quilts or wall hangings.  We don't need quilts on our beds at Christmas because it's summer time.  

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  What have you been up to this week? Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Christmas must be a magical time of year at your house!

As I've grown older as well as kids and grandkids it seems I don't feel much like decorating anymore. And maybe I don't feel like decorating because I haven't made much magic with which to decorate.

i love all your Christmas quilts! I love the summer twist to them, so much prettier than our northern hemisphere quilts. Happy stitching!

Beautiful. I stopped by with the intention to share my Tree of Life quilt but since you are Christmasy I am sharing my Christmas in July post. Thank you for the linky party.

I really like the wool applique.

I do so enjoy seeing your creations - color abounds in everything you make and that delights my senses! I'm a color person, too. Good point about no bed quilts for Christmas where you live. We have just the opposite so it's hard to imagine. Beautiful quilts, all of them.

I'm sure the ladies were blown away with seeing your lovely work!
