Quilted Star Christmas Bulbs

I realized yesterday morning that I have five finished projects that I haven’t shared here.  I’ve had pictures of all of them for a while; I just haven’t taken the time to sit down and write about them.  So, it seems high time that I put together the blog posts for all of those finished projects.  I’ll start today with the simplest project, and work my way up to the large quilts.

Every year, the Gallatin Quilt Guild does a Christmas gift exchange.  Everyone makes something small, and all the gifts go in the middle of the circle.  One person starts by opening a gift.  Whoever made that gift selects the next gift.  It goes on like that until everyone that brought a gift has received one.  It works well since you don’t have to worry about whether or not people are going to show up.

This year, I made fabric star Christmas bulbs with batik fabrics.  They took longer to make than I thought they would, but they were still a very fast project.  It was fun to work on them while watching Christmas movies.  And the recipient absolutely loved them.

    Who wouldn’t love them? They are expensive to buy – I bought one for $12 to hang on my tree, so I know! I’m just not at all crafty. I quilt, that’s pretty much it. LOL I love the colors and fabrics you used, too. I look forward to seeing what else you forgot to share. =)
