I have made Christmas quilts for my family, beginning with my son's adaptation of The Grinch That Stole Christmas. I made one for my daughter, showing her in her bed with sugarplums (her desired toys) dancing over her head. My daughter has twin girls, so I used a pattern from Quiltmania. It had reindeer heads cut from Christmas fabric. The antlers were based on their hands. My son has 2 children. For Ellie, I made a quilt adapting The Night Before Christmas in Hawaii. This was a favorite book of her mother's, who grew up in Hawaii. Now it's Sean's turn. I had already made him a robot quilt for his bed. The Christmas quilt I designed has a UFO theme. The body of the quilt has 3 parts. The sky has robots flying in. The second part is the living room, with a decorated Christmas tree. The floor section is littered with toys. It isn't finished yet. I plan on a narrow gold/yellow band to separate the middle from the first border, that will be composed of 3 X 7 bricks cut from the featured fabric, then another small border from fabric I haven't yet purchased. He won't be able to sleep under it this Christmas, as I plan to hand quilt it and today is December 8th!
