Christmas X Plus

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  In case you missed it, I posted the finish of my Fall Foliage quilt that I shared at last week's party HERE (quilted with woodgrain!), and I'm pleased to say that my wishful thinking worked like a charm.  We have been given a reprieve from the super hot temperatures for the past few days and it's actually starting to feel more like autumn is on its way.  Well, we all know that after fall comes the most wonderful time of the year, and it will be here before we know it!

As it turns out, this quilt is going to the same friend who is receiving the Fall Foliage quilt.  His family just loves my quilts and they decided they needed one for Christmas.  In fact, this will be the fourth quilt of mine that they own.  They already have an LSU Stacked Squares quilt for football season, as well as a Mardi Gras diamond quilt.  Since the Mardi Gras season follows right after Christmas (beginning on January 6th) and lasts through the start of lent, they will officially have the fall and winter seasons covered with quilts!  It makes me so happy to know that they love them so much.

It appears I'm not the only one getting in the Christmas spirit!  Sew Preeti Quilts shared this fun Modern Christmas Trees quilt-

Bambi Quilts shared this lovely Farfalle butterfly quilt-

Vasudha at Storied Quilts linked up this cool quilt.  Be sure to check out her amazing quilting on it.

and finally, this cool Oklahoma quilt is by Katie Mae Quilts.  What a neat way to show team spirit-

Y'all rock, friends!  I can't wait to see what you share this week.  Let's link up!

1. You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. What a wonderful testament to your work that you friend will have 4 of your quilts with this one! :)

  2. Love seeing both your's and Preeti's Christmas quilts!

  3. Hi Kelly, your Christmas quilt is gorgeous!

  4. Kelly, Who wouldn't want 4 of your quilts! They are great. Thanks for sharing the photos of others work, too! Your linky parties are very appreciated.

  5. The X-Plus block makes a wonderful Christmas quilt. I don't think I've seen one before. Making an X-Plus quilt is on my bucket list as soon as I finish a few other things. Lucky family to own 4 of your great quilts.

  6. Beautiful Christmas quilt!
    Thanks for hosting a link party, yours was the first I ever joined and I've gotten more website views from your party than all of the others combined!


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
