One last picture of Christmas quilts! Last spring my quilt sisters and I went to Dallas for a (very fun!) girl trip. We stopped by Ikea and ALL bought these towel racks. They are very cheap and come in two sizes.
This is in my living room and I trade out quilts during the year. A great, inexpensive way to display your treasures.
The top quilt is the rag quilt Julie blogged about a few days ago. The bottom one is a Sandy Gervais panel and pieced quilt.
Happy Day after Christmas!

I'll post my Christmas quilt from 2006. I liked that this pattern had presents under the tree and a star on top, as opposed to other rag Christmas tree quilts I have seen (the poor lighting on my photo doesn't do it justice). I borrowed the pattern from Judy, so she'll have to tell us what the name of it is.

Here is one of the blocks I designed on my own.
12. Sew 2 quarters together to make 2 halves.
Here's another quilt that uses the same technique:

Right before a big party last Christmas I closed this door and, of course, thought "This needs a quilt!" I wanted to show a quilt without marking the door...
I folded over four pieces of duct tape - one for each corner. The best part is this... it stood the test of time! I didn't take it off until October of this year. No paint came off the door and there was no tape residue on the door. And the quilt back didn't seem any worse for the wear.
This wall hanging is one of the first quilts I did four years ago... I know it was on the cover of a magazine, but can't remember which one. If any one knows where this pattern can be found, let us know!
