Quilters Christmas Party

Sew Cal Gal is having a Christmas party, with lots of great prizes!

We had our office Christmas party last Friday.  Actually, this was party number 1.  Our team reserved space in a restaurant, and went out after work for drinks and nibblies.  It was great fun.  I work with a great group of gals!

Party number 2 is a building-wide lunch, complete with our IT guy dressed up as Santa.  What a hoot!  That is this week, I think.  (I have a ticket - I'll have to check that to make sure I don't miss it.)

Party number 3 is our monthly "special lunch" - that celebrates the month's birthdays.  Usually, we all bring our own lunches, and one person brings a special dessert.  This month, we are all chipping in for pizza, and the lunch will have a combination birthday / Christmas theme.

Lots of fun!

To keep this quilty, I'll show you my Christmas quilts.  (I can't show you any decorations, as I have none up yet!)


This is a tablerunner that I made from a Patrick Lose pattern.  I love the whimsy of it!

Christmas Wall Hanging

This is a panel that I used for my first free motion quilting class.  Sorry about the fuzzy picture!  I got really good at stippling when I fmq'd the sky.  Real good!   Too bad I didn't quilt the rest of the quilt that heavily - the bottom is wavy as a result of the difference in the quilting density.  Oh well - I learned a lesson and the quilt is still cute on the wall.

Christmas Tree Quilt

And finally, the tree skirt.

And that's it for my Christmas craftiness!   I'm looking forward to seeing what others have done.

Love the tree skirt - really need to make one soon. The old red and white flannel sheet just doesn't cut it anymore! Your Christmas quilts are all beautiful, my favorite is that little snowman panel that you learned to FMQ on!

The snowman table runner is very cute! And I love the blue quilt in your header. Merry Christmas!

Everything is great, but I especially like your tree skirt. That is on my To-Do List one of these first years.
Happy Holidays!

Colleen, I'm happy to have you join the Quilter's Christmas Party. And fun to hear insights on your holiday activities. What a wonderful group you work with. Has been years since I've had such a fun workgroup to go out and enjoy time with each other and celebrate the holidays.

Love seeing your Christmas theme quilts. All delightful.

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New year.

HI Colleen,

As a follower of your blog, I am writing to invite you to join in gallery of Christmas Tree Skirts. Today I have written a post about the tree skirt that I made several years ago. I eagerly look forward to putting it under my tree each year. I hope that you will join me in featuring your Tree skirt. one you made, one that has been handed down for generations, perhaps it was a gift. Share your story and photos in a blog post (it can be an older post) and then visit my post and add your link to Mr. Linky and then leave a comment.

Thank-you for considering this opportunity. Feel free to share it with any of your online or personal friends. The more the merrier.

This is the perfect post to link up.
