Christmas Bowls

Stacking bowls is soooo much fun!  I had such a good time with Regina's pattern.  Thank you Regina for the pattern! I also want to thank Carol at Just Let Me Quilt and Madame Samm for organizing this wonderful blog hop.  Today is my day to show you what I made... when I saw this pattern it reminded me of my grandma, and when I think of grandma, I think of Christmas.  So here is how I made a Christmas themed Bowls with Borders.

Christmas fabric from Marcus Brothers would be perfect for this project.
(Spirit of Christmas)

Here's the first bowl done.... now it's time to stack!

It's so much fun stacking bowls!!

All ready for quilting... I  put a strip border around my pieced block.

Quilting in the cream space...

  6. Love all the great colors! My fave cookie recipe is the classic Mrs. Fields's Chocolate Chip recipe...they honestly make the best chocolate chip cookies ever :) I try to make them a little healthy by using extra oat flour and flax seed, cuts calories right ;o

  17. I love the darker fabrics for the bowls! and who doesn't love Christmas fabrics!

    My favorite cookie recipe is Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies.. they are the kind you cook on the stove and drop by spoon on to wax paper... although I do have to spoon some in a bowl and eat it while it is hot with a big glass of cold milk! My mother always kept the ingredients to these in the house so my sisters and I cooked them every week!

  18. I love working with Marcus fabric. I can almost feel the bowls. Great use of Christmas fabric.
    Mdm Samm had a blog post about deep dish cookies several months ago. Hubby liked the idea, and now makes cookies in my old tart pans. Oatmeal-with nuts, or raisins or cranberries. Yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love all cookies...but have to say that peanut butter cookies are still my favorite. Great job on the bowls!

  21. Hi Cindy & Wilson.
    How clever to use Christmas fabric but the bottom bowl isn't really. Hoever you have carefully cut the fabric so it looks like "hatched" or diamond lattice. Thank you.

  61. My favorite cookie recipe...hmmm...head to the. Refrigerated section of the grocery store. Grab one of those flat bags of a dozen precut refrigerated cookie dough (the one in the yellow and brown wrapper).

  66. Cindy- Love your Christmas bowls and quilting buddy. I am a retired Home Economics teacher and when I taught middle school I would have each kitchen prepare a different cookie recipe. The bowl that would end up on my desk most often because my students couldn't resist eating the dough (it was their idea) was the recipe for Pineapple Raisin cookies. Now I seldom prepare them because I end up eating them all. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your patterns and sharing your holiday bowls.
