NTT- All Christmas, All the Time

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  It's been another jam-packed week of Christmas festivities around here- another party, gingerbread house decorating, Christmas movies, making paper snowflakes, and yet another friends holiday dinner (a small group, so not really a party).  

Truth be told, in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas I rarely sew at all, and I'm just fine with that.  All of the gatherings and special traditions the season can be overwhelming for some, but it energizes me.  So, since my studio is quiet again this week, check out some of the highlights from last week's party.  

DonnaleeQ linked up this mini quilt made from the Birds of a Feather pattern in my book, Scrappy Improv Quilting.  The scrappy red birds look so festive against the low volume background-

Elana at That Fabric Feeling showed off this adorable Boro pouch-

This colorful quilt is by Rebecca Grace Quilting-

This pretty quilt is by Institches with Bonnie-

And this king-sized beauty is by Barb at Mountain Quiltworks (from Instagram)-

Take a look at this fun quilt top by Julie's Quilts and Costumes.  What a great layout for bowtie blocks!

And last, but certainly not least is this lovely quilt by Rita at Quiltpiecer-

Okay, y'all!  It's time to show what you've been working on this week.  Big or small, we want to see it!  

And, NTT will be taking break for the next couple of weeks for Christmas, but be sure to join me again for the first party of 2022 on 1/5!

*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. I'm with you on not getting much quilting done after Thanksgiving! What a whirlwind month. Merry Christmas wishes for you!

  2. wowie what a quilt show! I enjoyed those showcased all together here!

  3. Awesome entries from last week's Link Up, Kelly!!

  4. I'm so glad you are kind to yourself and know the ebb and flow of when you have the time for quilting.

  5. I understand about not having much sewing time during this season of preparations. For Christmas, for the first time in at least ten years, our children and grandchildren are coming to see us. That's putting a whole different spin on our lives! Elana's boro pouch is especially lovely. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thank you so much for featuring my Y2K quilt. I am so honored. So many beautiful quilts to inspire us. I am looking forward to 2022 and more creativity. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
