Christmas Collection Blog Hop Day #10 - Christmas Friends Throw

Welcome to Day #10 and the final day of Masterpiece Quilting's Christmas Collection Blog Hop.   I have been humbled by the tremendous response from everyone who has taken to participate in the blog hop - both the readers and the guest bloggers.  

In case you are just joining us, which is perfectly fine, each day for the past two weeks myself and a group of elite guest bloggers have highlighted one of the projects in my Christmas Collection book which is available on Amazon and eligible for Prime shipping.  

Today's featured quilt is actually the cover quilt from the book - Christmas Friends Throw.  Made in  traditional reds and greens, it appears much more complex than it really is.  

During the Holiday season, it's easy to quickly change your decor by swapping out throws in the living area of your house.  So even if you have repeat guests, you decor will always look fresh and inviting. 

I think the best part of the blog hop is seeing the versions made by the guest bloggers.  Don't you agree?   Today I have amazing projects to share by: 

Anorina Morris of Samelia's Mum 
Marlene Oddie of KISSED Quilts

Maryellen McAuliffe of Mary Mack Made Mine

It's always blows me away how each quilter can take the same pattern and add their own unique touches and they all turn out so beautiful! 

As a part of the blog hop, I am giving away 3 digital copies of the Christmas Friends Throw pattern.  In the comments, share which area of your home you like to decor best - dining, bedroom or living room.  The winners will be selected at the end of the blog hop on Sunday August 4, 2019.

  1. The lounge and hallway are my main areas for Christmas decorations. Thank you for a lovely blog hop and I wish you well with your Christmas Collection Book

  2. This has been a fun blog hop. Just enough others participating with great ideas/options for the patterns. Thank you. I like my entryway/formal to be decorated and carry into the family room (that is how my house flows).

  3. Love this quilt and all of the patterns shown on the hop. I think my favorite place to decorate is the living room. We don't have a dining room and the bedroom is too small to do much in.

  4. Love the quilt. I guess the living room but that's a hard question to answer really.

  5. Looks like lots of cute patterns in this book. My favorite place to decorate is the dining room.

  6. My entire house gets the Christmas treatment - we put up seven trees - even the bathrooms get tiny trees! Love to drape Christmas quilts everywhere!
