Christmas quilts

More ho ho ho (it's that time of year in magazine project land). Needed to fish out my Christmas quilts, so took the opportunity to photograph them (lordy lordy lordy, what would I do without my useful-for-so-many-photos white cane chairs????). White, green and the quilts. Pretty.

While there are a few Christmas fabrics there, I tend to avoid uber-Christmas fabrics in favour of designs and fabrics that become quilts that can be used at any time of year. Also, flouncy little Santas and bells and such do nasty things to my blood pressure. Or would, if I let them in the house.

In Field of Dreams, Darth Vader, I mean James Earl Jones' character says, "The one constant through all the years is baseball." Seems like the one constant in my Christmas quilts is red. Quite right too. I may flirt with olive or aqua, or add in mustard, but red is always right.

Wonderful shot. I love the way the chair and the foliage set off the beauty of the quilts.

When I started reading this entry, I DID wonder if the references to Santas would pop up!!! VBG

Ooooh, you just inspired me to do a Maison de Noel quilt... a year late. Thank you!
