  2. Edna Johnson says:

    I love to decorate with seasonal quilts. The vibrant colors of the four seasons are a great palette to work from.

  3. Virginia Majewski says:

    I just finished a project for a silent auction fund raiser for my local genealogical society. It was called a year of table runners. I used seasonal fabrics in all of them. I made a total of 12 table runners. One for each season; Spring, Summer, Sall & Winter, as well as one for each holiday; Valentines, St. Paddys, Easter, Independance Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and a Happy Birthday. They were a great hit at the silent auction and brought in quite a chunk of change. It was a very fun project and one I may decide to repeat.

  4. Deb says:

    Actually, no. I don’t have a Christmas quilt but want to make one badly. I have a half finished autumn leaf wall hanging that needs finishing. I love to decorate seasonally and need to decorate with quilts seasonally since I love them so much!

  5. Catherine Beyers says:

    I enjoy hanging the seasonal quilts in my school library. Kids like them too!

  6. Jeanette DeBruler says:

    Almost all my Quilts are given away. It’s like a cook watching people eat what you have created and smiling .” silence is golden ” I would like to make seasonal wall hangings and change them out during the year . THANKS this is the last day to blog , I’m glad I stopped by . Great site alot of inspiration THANKS again!

  7. Robin Huss says:

    I’ve just started making a quilt, but hopefully I’ll have seasonal quilts in the near future. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  8. Michele Etter says:

    I think this quilt would make a great gift for a film buff or a photographer you could even plug in photos – I love to take patterns and think outside of the box to make more personalized gifts for people!

  9. Lisa G. says:

    I am not a seasonal “decorator”. Whatever strikes my fancy is usually what is used.

  10. Gill says:

    I only have Christmas quilts! but I make a new one each year!


    I have christmas quilts half made and appliqued tree skirt, otherwise I make quilts that last all year long (but I am making a Chistmas table runner for a newly wed neighbour).

  12. ritainalaska says:

    i’m trying to put seasonal 1: runners on my entry table, 2: table cloths, 3: sofa throws. they don’t have to match, just colored ot themed.

  13. I can not wait to do this quilt. I was hoping to start it right away but I have a baby shower to do first and then 3 craft sales. So it is first after Xmas. I can’t wait. It would be great to get some awesome fabric to make it with :)

  14. Lovie Ball says:

    The only quilted seasonal that I use, are table runners, and a Christmas tree skirt. Lack of storage space is a big reason.

  15. Suzy Weinbach says:

    Yes, Yes, Yes absolutely. I change all the quilts and decorative items with the seasons. This means I can make even more quilted items from quilts, bags, table runners, placemats, door banners…you get the picture. The more the merrier!

  16. Amy Losordo says:

    I’ve got a Christmas wall quilt. Your fabrics inspire me to start one for the fall season.

  17. Clara says:

    I do use quilts for the changing seasons: Valentine’s Day table runner, 4th of July table runner, Halloween basket liner for the Trick r’ Treats and Christmas–wreath for the door, skirt under the tree and a table topper. Love Quiltmaker magazine and blog!! Thanks for the opportunity to win some fabric. Thanks also for the Back to School quilt.

  18. Vickie Adams says:

    I have an appliqué floral basket that my Mama made that I keep up most of the year, except fall & Christmas. Maple leaf for fall & log cabin for Christmas:)

  19. Melissa Meier says:

    Love theme fabric:)

  20. Pat says:

    I do use seasonal quilts in my home to decorate, sometimes hanging on the wall and sometimes across the back of the couch or chair.

  21. donna russ says:

    I use seasonal fabrics, just in the Spring and Fall, at Christmas also……..sometimes I even change the paint on the walls, my family says that I probly need to sandpaper my walls to get all those layers of paint off…LOL…. but my quilts and curtains are seasonal….and pillows…..

  22. Ginger Schottler says:

    I love quits! I usually don’t have quilts that I have made because they all seem to go home with other people! That being said, I do own many quilts and look forward to cooler fall weather to update our bedroom.



  23. Kaye M. says:

    I have made several Christmas wall hangings that I display during December. I like to make seasonal tablerunners because they are quick projects and are easy to change out. I sometimes dream about making a bed-size Christmas quilt but its still just a dream!

  24. Linda says:

    I love seasonal quilts and use them on my family room sofa. They are always being rotated to fit the current season or holiday.

  25. Janet says:

    I do tend to use seasonal quilts, especially at Christmas!

  26. Tina Conner says:

    I haven’t made any holiday quilts for my home, yet. I love my quilts and leave them on the chairs, couch and beds throughout the house year round. Nothing is more inviting then a comfy quilt of any flavor.

  27. Heidi says:

    I sure do decorate with quilts, I seam to have several fall and Christmas. I need to work on spring and summer quilts!

  28. Lorrie Means says:

    I have a few wall hangings for Christmas, Easter, Summer. But no quilts (yet). Looking at a couple table runners to make for Christmas .

  29. Marilyn Snow says:

    I like the quilts for the beds to be useful year-round. I am making seasonal wall hangings for use for decoration that I will switch out as time passes.

  30. Shirley in Canada says:

    Looking at this again – it looks so different! I would love to make it in the Red Rooster combo! beautiful!

  31. Amanda A says:

    I have an apple tree quilt I’m finishing up right now – hopefully I can use it before the end of fall! I would love to have a fun lap sized quilt finished for each season eventually :)

  32. Teresa says:

    I love to decorate my home for the seasons. I have several bed quilts I use for each season. Also decorate with table runners and placemats. I also enjoy using seasonal table runners for a shelf I have at work and am currenty making a wall hanging for Halloween. Thanks for the chance to win fabric.

  33. Kathy M Boice says:

    I do not use seasonal quilts to decorate my home. I love table toppers and little quilts best. They are on display in my home year round.

  34. TX JennyWren says:

    Love this awesome quilt you are teaching us about. A great pattern.

    For holidays I love to put out table toppers, doilys and quilts for the season. I have doilys and table toppers from both my mother and my aunt. And also the ones I have made as well.

    thanks for a chance to win the blog candy.
