Merry Christmas from the Watsons!
I love Christmas time because it’s the only holiday I’ve made a lot of quilts for! (Note to self – get a jump start on those other holidays right away in the coming year.)
When we first moved into our house 8 years ago, I let everyone pick out any fabric they liked for their stockings (the kids’ tastes have changed a bit since then). My mom embroidered the names for me on a separate piece of fabric which I then appliqued to the front of the stockings.
I’m not much of a decorator and I like to recycle many of my ideas so I don’t have to think too much! (I have made two “tree” quilts and two mini’s from pretty much the same patterns I created about 10 years apart.)
I like how Modern Trees looks hanging down over the bannister from the second floor of the house. It’s the first thing everyone sees when they walk though the door. I think I’ll eventually add some loops on the back that I can velcro around the wooden spindles so I can show the whole quilt.
The only thing I’m missing now is a quilted tree skirt. Maybe next year…
