Christmas Pot Luck.  
The blocks all have names related to foods or dishes and it began as a quilt-along at Old Tippecanoe Quilt Guild.  
It is machine pieced and quilted.  The piecing was done by Annabel Drazin, West Lafayette, Indiana, and the quilting was (beautifully!) done by Viki Kirby of West Point, Indiana.  
It was completed in January, 2011.

White Christmas.
The pattern was designed by Laura Blanchard.  It is machine pieced and quilted.  
Pieced by Annabel Drazin, West Lafayette, Indiana and quilted (with reindeer) by Marilyn Popplewell, Monticello, Indiana.
It was completed in December 2017.

Doll quilt made by Barb Garrett sometime in the 1980s.  The poinsettias are cut out from 1950s apron yardage.   The white and red fabrics are vintage 36″ wide cottons.   It’s machine pieced and hand quilted.

Redwork Christmas Story 
We follow siblings, Johnny and Jill as they send their Christmas letter to Santa, hang their stockings with care, say their prayers and come down the stairs on Christmas morning to find all their dreams have come true.  Redwork embroidery by Joyce Hostetler, machine quilted by Kathy Slater.  

Christmas Sampler 
Several years ago the Marie Webster Quilt guild celebrated National Quilting Day by hosting a day filled with speakers, Show and Tell, lunch, and a Challenge.  We bought packets of fabrics and made as many blocks as we could.  One year Theresa Doyle and Bobbie Wells were in charge of the Challenge and chose these beautiful fabrics.   Names were drawn and I was fortunate to win some of the blocks.  My good fortune continued when my dear friend, Carolyn Schwartz gifted me with her packet of blocks.  This big, beautiful Christmas quilt is the happy result. Thank you to the guild members!  Pieced by MWQG members, assembled by Joyce Hostetler and machine quilted by Ruth Gentry.
