Christmas Under Cover…by Andrea R Huelsenbeck

Much about the Christmas season inspires warmth. God’s love for us made tangible by the gift of his Son. Blazing fires in the hearth. Gatherings of family and friends. Cups of hot chocolate or spiced cider.

But there’s something especially warming about snuggling under a  Christmas quilt. Traditional, yet timeless. Artful, yet practical. Here are a dozen lovely ones gleaned from Etsy.com. Some are bed-sized, and some are wall quilts. All were still available when I found them on Wednesday. Click on the caption above each picture for further details.

    I have a Christmas lap quilt my mom made me. I use it as a wall hanging at Christmas. I’ll be blogging about it later this month. 🙂 I tried to paste a picture of it here, but it wouldn’t let me. Oh well. Of the ones shown in your blog, my favorite is the Starry Christmas one. So cute!
