A Few More Christmas Quilts





 Here are a few more Christmas quilts sent to me by readers.  This one is from my friend, Julie, in Oregon.  She won the blocks through an online quilting group.  She created the setting with EQ.  Pretty, Julie!




And this one floored me!  Hanging a quilt as a shower curtain never occurred to me!  Hmmm.... now I have to think about this.....

Peg sent this one in.  She said it was so big that she didn't know what else to do with it.  I wonder if guests use the bathroom in her home and seem to take a little longer..... lol

Peg- did you line or quilt this? What treatment did you use? I would think it could be lightly quilted with a backing but no batting.  





These ladies get an extra entry in my December blog giveaway for sending me a photo of a holiday project.  Check the giveaway post for details.  Good luck to all!

I'm decorating this weekend.  Headed to the garage to dig out the decorations.... deep breath.... here goes.....

I was washing my shower curtain this weekend, and thought a quilted piece would be fantastic in place of what is hanging there now. I have a plastic liner on the inside, but a pieced front with a solid back.. and no batting so that it wasn't too heavy would go up there nicely.. I would just have to add a lot of button holes on top (boo) so that I could hang it.

A shower curtain? What a wonderful idea? I hope guests see the real beauty of it.

I love the won blocks too. Nice arrangement.

Love them both! I love stars and the idea of using a flimsy for a shower curtain is brilliant.

Oh wow, the one in the shower is soooo wonderful...both are just great!

Cute quilts! I love the idea of using the quilt top as the shower curtain. My daughter made a fabric shower curtain in college. She just has a liner on the inside. It's held up for 10 years now and looks great.

You asked, so I'm answering - I used tab tops to hang it, and just simply lined it. I thought that quilting it would be too heavy, and if it got wet..... When lining - left the bottom 'open' a few inches up, and made the liner a little shorter than the top. The real shower curtain is hung with its regular hooks in between the tabs. I'm going to love taking this out every Christmas.

I have a quilt shower curtain too... http://moderndiary.blogspot.com/2008/02/good-news-and-progress-on-house.html if you scroll down you can see a not so great picture of it in my old house. I need to take a new one of it in the new house (3 years later, lol). It isn't Christmas themed, but I love a suprise spot to hang a quilt!
