Tuesday Archives - Christmas Quilts

It's been awhile since I've linked up with Val for Tuesday Archives. 

Val's Quilting Studio

Since I'm off work this week, I actually have time to write a post.  For some reason, Monday's are always manic and I just never get a post pulled together.  

This week's archive topic is Christmas Quilts.  I've only finished one Christmas quilt and I wrote a post about it when Val's Tuesday Archival linky party  #12 was for Christmas quilts.  You can click here, to see Charming Christmas Cardinals.  

There are two other Christmas quilts on the UFO list.  The first is Poinsettia's, which has been my leaders and enders project for the last couple of years.  It's also been my Let's Book It Project, a linky party hosted by Vroomans Quilts that encourages us to use all those quilting books on the shelf.  The last post showing progress is just a few weeks old. You can find it here.

The second Christmas UFO has been hanging around since July of 2013.  The most recent blog post on that project dates from November 2013.  I haven't touched it since then.  Here's the original plan for Christmas Angels:

The green and beige 4 patches are all made and the star points are all made.  I just need to finish the angel blocks.  Hopefully I'll get back to this one sometime next year.  

That's all my Ghost of Christmas UFOs has to show.  You can find more eye candy for Christmas over at Val's Quilting Studio.  


  1. Oh my goodness. This is just gorgeous. I can't remember ever seeing it before.

  2. I like the circle effect you get when combining those two blocks. Good luck on the finish.

  3. The design is stunning. Thanks for sharing, glad you had time to write this post.

  4. I love the illusion of circles in this quilt!

  5. Me again - is there a pattern for the Christmas Angels quilt or is this your design? I looked back on your November post thinking there would be more info but didn't see anything about a pattern. Thank you.

  6. It is going to be stunning when you get it put together! Visiting from Vals

  7. Looking good! I don't remember seeing this one before either. Very pretty.

  8. Wow - the Christmas Angels is a looker! I love the circles the very geometric stars create!!! :)
