Christmas Quilt Show 2011

Oh my goodness, am I late for the party? I so love looking at all of the contributions to the Christmas Quilt Show over at SewCalGal's blog. I've been having some computer problems, which seems to have scrambled my brain. 

I started out making a table runner using the sleigh and reindeer from my GO cutter. I had eight reindeer, the sleigh and started making little houses, didn't like it. Then came snowmen and trees, didn't like it. 
I looked out the window and saw the row of palm trees across the street and knew what I wanted to make.





Feels like home. 

I hope you're enjoying the show. I'm off to visit the other wonderful quilts.

Thanks for coming by,
Dana

  19. Nice! I guess it's so wintery here (Wyoming), where we've had snow since the first week of October, that I never thought about palm trees with Christmas.
