Lucia Beth's Christmas Tumblers

When I inherited my mother's fabric stash she had a plastic tub full of Christmas fabrics - no surprise as Christmas was a very important event for my mother every year.

I saw a quilt design made with the Tumbler AcuQuilt die that my aunt had done and decided that would be a good way to use up some of the Christmas fabrics.  So I decided to make a quilt for each of my kids and myself using the Tumbler design. 

Quilt #1 - went to Stefanie and Kyle Anderson

Quilt #2 - went to Kevin and Stephanie Reeve

Quilt #3 - I kept for my husband Ron and myself

I put the same label on each of the quilts and also embellished the labels with some buttons that I had found in my Mom's craft items.

We went out to dinner last night for my birthday and I gave our kids the quilts at the end of the dinner. Below is a picture of me (in the middle) with our daughter Stefanie and son Kevin receiving their quilts.

I know it is pretty early - but Merry Christmas everyone!!! - Remember Jesus is the reason for the season.

PS:  I am posting this as my December 2012 UFO finish
