Christmas in July bloghop

Hi friends!
This is my project that I have been working for this hop.
Today is my day for "Christmas In July Blog Hop" that is the brain child of Carol  Swift of  Justletmequilt.
You can click on her blog name or on the Christmas In July picture on the side of my post to visit her.
A friend Carol  of the blog  BeadsandBirds sent me this panel of the nativity scene and I decided to do it for my main project.
I  finished the manger !
Made a Christmas tree pot holder.
I just outlined the tree for the quilting on this.
Some older things I have done.
This is a falling charm Christmas quilt I made a couple of years ago.
I stays in my living room all year long because I love Christmas.
This is a snow man Dresden plate I made a few years ago for kim, my red haired step-daughter.
This is the one I made for us!  Dresden Quilt with pillow shams and a hugh Christmas pillow.
And for a good friend that lost her husband of many years and who  was fighting for her life I made this Artic Star quilt. She has sense lost her battle, funeral yesterday.
Made a few more but they are for another day. Happy Christmas in July

Good Morning. I'm so glad you could use the panel. It's perfect to have out for the kids at Christmas and opens a lovely conversation with them about the Nativity. Please do not enter me in the give a way. Though the fabric offered is nice, as you know, my stash overflows. Not a bad problem to have.

You have made some very lovely quilts over the years.
xx, Carol
