This week's throw back thursday is the about the log cabin quilts I made for my boys beds for Christmas. I had made quilts for all the beds in the house and got the brilliant idea that they all needed Christmas quilts as well. My boys were about 7 at the time (so that would be about 9 years ago, gulp!) and they have twin beds that are in the same room.
Sidenote: They really wanted their own rooms when we moved to our current home (they were in Kindergarten at the time) so we honored that request and got them all moved into their very own rooms. That lasted four days, and then they decided they wanted to be together again. How sweet is brotherly love?
Where was I? Oh yes, I decided to make Christmas quilts for all the beds in the house and they were in the same room so I wanted theirs to coordinate. I made the same pattern for each of them, only one in reds and one in greens. The backing fabrics are the same as well, only one in red and one in green obviously. I machine quilted them and was so happy to finish them by Thanksgiving of that year!
When my daughter saw them, she excitedly said, "Mommy those are so beautiful! What's my Christmas quilt going to look like?" Ummm. My best response at the moment was, "Yours is going to be invisible this year, but you will be able to see it next year, I promise!" And she was very happy with that answer thankfully. I will share her Christmas quilt next week.
I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season and enjoying your Christmas quilts as well! I would love to see your Christmas quilts if you would like to link to them below or in the comments. Sorry I forgot to add the linky last week. Oops!
Enjoy every stitch,
