Christmas in July

It's never too early to start thinking about the holiday season.  

I just finished this Frosty Quilted Table Runner this week.  It came out cute as a bug's ear!  Where did that saying come from?  Do bugs really have ears?  Hmmmmm.....

Here's Frosty by himself, as a Quilted Trivet, ready to decorate and protect your table from those hot and delicious holiday dishes you make special for your family.

If you want to make a few of these, the pattern for the Frosty Quilted Trivet is available in the Curlicue Creations Shop.  They are fun and quick to make, using fusible applique and just a few scraps from your stash.  This is a great hostess gift for all those holiday parties you will be attending this season.

If you prefer something more toned down, consider the Pine Tree Quilt Block Pattern.  You could get really creative with this one.  Stitch it up just like it is, combine it with other blocks, or trim the trees with buttons, beads, and bows for a Christmas effect.

These Vintage Shining Star Quilt Blocks could be made into a Christmas quilt, too.  Get creative!  You could put these around a center medallion, or alternate them with another block for eye-catching results.

Let's quilt!
