A Very Quilty Merry Christmas

Yesterday on Instagram, I saw that Bonnie Hunter was doing a Quilty Christmas Projects Link-up and I thought, how fun!!!  I don't know if I have ever done a Christmas Project Round-Up post, and what better day than Christmas Eve ;)  So here it goes.   These are the Christmas Projects you can find here at Happy Quilitng.

I made 3 Christmas Projects this year . . .

First, O Christmas Trees.   For more fun pics, I blogged about this quilt here.   And if you want to make your own, the tutorial for this quilt can be found here.


Second for this year, my Simply Modern Monochromatic Stockings.  Finally, we all have matching stockings, yippee!!!  For more fun pics, I blogged about these stockings here.   And if you want to make your own, the tutorial for these stockings can be found here.  


And the final Christmas Finish from this year, My Christmas Fat Quarter Fizz that was made with the Fat Quarter Shop.     For more fun pics, I blogged about this quilt here.   And if you want to make your own, the pattern for this quilt can be found here. 



Now, how about some Christmas Finishes from Yesteryear ;)

In 2012, I used my all time favorite Christmas Fabric, Countdown to Christmas from Sweetwater, to make this Spinning or Spiraling Christmas Quilt.  I blogged and wrote a tutorial for the quilt right here if you want to know more ;)


Also, in 2012, I made this Christmas Ribbons Throw, a variation on a Jelly Roll Race quilt ;)  It is fast and super fun.   I blogged and wrote a tutorial for this quilt right here if you want to know more ;)


And in 2011, I made this Christmas Traditions Advent Calendar.   It is a super fun way to get in all of your Holiday fun.   I blogged about the calendar here and if you want to make your own, you can find the tutorial for the calendar here ;)  


Then pop back another year to when I was first finding the online quilt world.  In 2010 Amy Ellis was hosting a Beginners Sampler Quilt Along and I made a Christmas Version.  So fun!!!  For more fun pics, I blogged about this here.  


And then pop way back, to when I was just learning to quilt, and ya, it took me a year or so to make one (funny how that has changed) this Christmas Around The Year quilt was the first quilt I ever made.   (Not so much of a beginner quilt, but I learned a lot)  It was given to my Mother-In-Law in 2005 and seems only appropriate that she recieved my first quilt as she is now my day to day go to in all things quilty :)  I didn't have a blog when I wrote this quilt so it's just a picture here ;)  


And that just about wraps it up.  Yup, my first quilt ever is the last one to be shared ;)  I have to say, I am so glad Bonnie did this little linky.  It really is so fun to see all of these in one place.   I hope you find a quilt or project you like that you want to whip up for next year ;)  If you do, I would love to see it.  You can add pics to my flickr group here or email me pics at happyquiltingmelissa@gmail.com.


So that is my little Christmas Project Round-up :)   And now I best go round up the kids to go sledding.  

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday!!!
