I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday. After hearing that one of his friends was having a tough time, my son and I decided it would be fun to work together to make her a quilt. We pulled several fabrics from my stash and these are the blocks we came up with. They still need some arranging but we are well on the way. The picture isn't very good cause I am trying to post using my new tablet (a great Christmas gift if I could figure out how to use it).

I finished the block today and am so happy that I found it cause I love the way the lotus turned out. Only one more block before I need to figure out borders. I love the Christmas projects but it is nice to get back to other projects.

As I was stashing away some Christmas gifts today I realized that I had snowmen quilty things in yet another room. This little pillow was made many years ago for my youngest son's bedroom. I believe the snowman pattern came from a Thimbleberries Christmas book. Now he has a perfect winter home in our tiny guest room.
And here is the quilt on the bed in the same room. This is about the only bedroom that always has a quilt on the bed, which I change often. Sorry you can't really see the quilt, I'll have to get a better picture. :)

And here is one that I forgot about when I was taking pictures around my house. I made this a few years ago and can't find the pattern. It is fused and then buttonhole stitched by hand and again not much quilting.

Oh and this wouldn't be a tour of a quilter's home at Christmas without seeing what most quilter's really see this time of year.
