Christmas QAL Quilt Show

As many of you know, every second Saturday for the last year I have participated in the Christmas Quilt Along hosted this year by Sue of Quilt Times  http://quilttimes.blogspot.com/ and Cathi of Shakerwood Quilts .http://shakerwoodquilts.blogspot.com/  Sue began this fun event in 2010 I believe, and it's the best thing that's happened to me in the sense that I've made so many of my beautiful Christmas covers with her and the other participants.  Hazel of Hazel's Quilts http://hazelsquilts.blogspot.com/ suggested that we have a show-off day on the second Saturday of December, so here I am, ready to brag. 

This year the Scatty Stars quilt pattern was given to us a block at a time each month. 

Pretty nice, huh?  I had this quilt folded at the end of my bed the other day, and when I got home I couldn't find Moxie until I walked into my room and saw a lump under my quilt and felt a little warm body sleeping there.  So it's been given the Moxie Seal of Approval.

I made these two table covers this year.

The quilt that Moxie's sitting on here was made during last year's Christmas QAL.

I made this wall hanging last year, too.

I'd like to share with you my Christmas decorations.  I am a big Annalee fan.  She was a New Englander, New Hampshire, and I love her dolls.
My bears wish you a Merry Christmas.

My carolers and musicians hope you enjoy the beautiful music of the season.

The santaas and elves are out in full force.

The reindeer know where the good news of great joy is to be found.

The angels hope we hear the message.

Soon it will be time for joy.

Joanna, your Scatty Stars quilt is beautiful! Even if you didn't have Moxie's seal of approval, you certainly have mine! All your projects are wonderful! And I love seeing all your displays...the Santas and elves are so cute! On to the next Christmas Quiltalong!

Your quilt is delightful, and I agree with Lesley, you have my seal of approval too. The runners are wonderful too. You've definitely achieved a lot during this year.

Thanks for showing us your decorations too. I'm getting my tree up tomorrow.
