Long Road to Bethlehem

I’d been wanting to do a Christmas quilt honoring Jesus.  I had the idea for this one and inlisted Greg and Megan, members of our church, to model for me.  My husband again did the photography.

Techniques: Applique with painted shadows and details. Pieced background areas. Heavily quilted.

Christmas Joy


This quilt is an original design.  I sketched the applique elements and machine pieced the crazy quilt panels.  Each Panel has fancy stitching between each piece

Techniques: Pieced, appliqued, machine quilted. Has a sleeve sewn to the top back for ease of hanging.

There is a pattern available if you’d like to make your own version.

Christmas Joy Table Topper

Adapted to lay on a table top (next to the quilt on the wall). This touch of Christmas will highlight any table.

Techniques: Pieced, appliqued, machine quilted. Has a sleeve sewn to the top back for ease of hanging.

The Gift


I used my Granddaughter and her new baby as models for this quilt.

Techniques: Painted on fabric. Heavily quilted.

This was an idea I decided to try.  It consists of 5 panels that are held together with some glitzy tulle and organza.

Each tree section is a combination of a collection of printed Christmas fabrics and the blue background is woven 1″ strips.

Names and phrases about Jesus are written here and there in the blue background.

Techniques: Collage, weaving, cotton batting. Heavily quilted.

Candles of Celebration

I designed this little quilt with a pattern in mind.  It turned out to be a favorite of mine.

Techniques: Piecing with a touch of applique for the flame. The flame has a bead highlight. Machine quilted.

There is a pattern available for this little quilt.  Contact me for info.
