Client Quilts - Christmas Edition

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!  We had a great time at the Latimer house.  With how busy this year has been - I have to say I'm glad all the décor is down and we can get back to normal! 
I haven't posted client quilts in awhile - and I have been doing some fun ones lately!  Wanted to share with you some Christmas ones I've done over the past few months.  I sure love a good Christmas quilt - here are a few!
Becca made this cute one out of one of my all time favorite Christmas lines.  Count Down to Christmas?  Sweetwater by Moda. Love this line!
At first she wasn't sure she wanted a Christmas pattern - glad she changed her mind cause it looked perfect on this quilt!

We settled on Christmas Snow - and it looked SO cool - the back was like a big four patch of solid red and green - so this pattern looked AWESOME!

Here's a close up.  The pattern takes FOREVER to quilt out - but so worth it!  If you have a Christmas quilt finished - hurry and send it over to get the $.01 inch special as this pattern won't be staying at this price!

This next quilt I think is such a cute HST pattern!  I started making HST out some squares of Joy I have lying around.  I love how this one turned out!
She chose Glacee for her pattern - a perfect pair. Her backing is this fun mishmash of Christmas cheer - my kids would die to be cozied up in this all season long!

This next quilt from Susan was simple and sweet.  I love patchwork quilts and this one was no exception. 

I loved the borders - snowflakes and mittens.  I have to say - the joys of quilting - I see things that would be out of my box.  I don't know if I've ever paired 2 bold prints together as borders - now that I've seen this one - I wonder why that always scared me.  Its my favorite part of her quilt!

She chose Glacee for this quilt - my most popular Christmas design by far!  Its a good one!

Same fun backing on this quilt.  I love a good backing!

This next quilt is from Judy - and I love it!  (I know I say this about most quilts - its a problem...every quilt that comes through my door I think I have to make).  But I do love this ones - its Christmas - its stars.  My 2 favorite types of quilts!

We chose Holly for this quilt.  I love this pattern.  I love Holly berry patterns so this one is one of my favorites!

Fit perfectly with this cute holly berry backing - This quilt would be such a fun scrap quilt of all reds, whites, and greens - Loved working on this!

Neesha sent me a box of quilts.  What I love about Neesha's quilts - is that they are all on my to do list already.  So I get to see them completed!  We have similar tastes in fabric choses as well as patterns so they are so fun to quilt up. 
This pattern is Rosette's by Fig Tree and I have LOVED this pattern since the first time I saw it.  With all the other quilts on my list and how busy life is at the moment - I doubt this quilt will be done in my near future - so I so enjoyed working on this quilt. 

She used Basic Grey's Blitzen line from last year.  Although I love their line this year Aspen Frost - I think Blizten might win the contest.  I really love this line and the grey prints especially.  Lucky for me I stashed away 2 quilts worth of this fabric last year....

She chose Glacee for this quilt which went perfect with the fabrics.
This red tonal paisley border KILLS me.  I love it so much!

The back fabric she used is from Aspen Frost - and I immediately went out and bought myself a bolt of it.  YES A BOLT!  I try not to play favorites - but this is at the top of my list of Christmas quilts I've ever seen - let alone quilted up!

Liz brought me some cute Christmas quilts to give to her granddaughters.  This is such a fun quilt and I love the appearance of black in Christmas quilts!

We used Flirtatious as the quilt pattern.  I am loving this new to me pattern.  It adds texture without taking away from the quilt (perfect for this one with some applique on it) yet its whimsical and fun. 

Reminds me of ribbons which was prefect for this quilt.  I love how it shows up on her backing fabric. 

Her next quilt was made using Anna Maria Horners Christmas line from last year I think.  I don't know how I missed out on this line.  It is so cute!

Liz chose Holly Panto for her quilt pattern - this is my favorite Christmas pattern I have!

You can't see it well in the picture, but this border fabric has a light green almost tonal ornament print on it.  Was my favorite print in the quilt - again - how did I miss this line!

I also loved the backing with the Noel fabric and pieced center.  I'm loving pieced backings more and more, adds so much character to a quilt!

The next 3 quilts were made using the Fat Quarter Shops - free Christmas BOM pattern.  They are all so cute and was fun to see the differences between them. 

Debra and Jessica are sisters and made theirs out of the Aspen Frost collection by Basic Grey.  (As you know I'm slightly obsessed with their fabrics)

Aren't these ornament blocks so cute?  I want a whole quilt out of them!

Used Glacee on both and I think they turned out so fun and festive.  Makes me want to go back and make one myself!

Deb made the same pattern - using different fabrics.  Her placement is also a little different - the trees are on the bottom of the mugs on this quilt!  See - so fun to see where people mixed it up!

Deb chose Bubbles for her quilt - I love how they are fun and whimsical just like this quilt!

I think the blocks in the quilt are so cute - wouldn't this wreath be fun on a table runner? 

Or the Ornaments as a runner?  The ideas are flowing for me now - I better get started!

Lani was one of the last Christmas looking quilts I did right before Christmas.  This pattern is so fun (I can't remember the name of the pattern)  I made it a few years ago seen here and remember what a fun time I had with this quilt. 

I LOVED quilting it up in these fun funky Christmas fabrics!  The border fabric is to die for!  I loved everything about this quilt!

Lani chose Flurry - she was the first customer to try this new snowflake pattern and I love it.  I keep going back and forth on if I like this one more then Glacee - I think I might! 

She used minky for her backing - and come on - any quilting snowflake or not is going to look great - but this pattern looks amazing on the minky! 

I'm sure I have a few Christmas ones I missed in this bunch - but I'm trying to organize my pictures and post each week what I've worked on - so for 2014 I'll do better with these. 
I appreciate all your loyalty and support with my business this year.  It is such an inspiration to get to work on these beautiful quilts each day.  Sadly my stash is growing because I need to copy all your quilts!  Hope you all have a wonderful New Year!
