Patty Murphy and her fabulous Christmas quilt finish!


Patty from Patty Murphy Handmade submitted this beautiful Christmas quilt for a feature. We love it! She has been making beautiful quilts for her closes friends for their weddings! Patty is an author, she has a book coming out with C&T next fall! You can also see her goodies on Instagram @pattypmurphy. Here is her story:

In the mid to late 90's when my friends started getting married and I was fresh out of college with no money, I decided to make my closest friends quilts for their weddings. While I feel as if I'll always be a few quilts behind, I'm thrilled when I finish one. This is my most recent. 

Jason was one of the groomsmen in my wedding and is the god father of my youngest son. I was thrilled when he and his wife, Jennifer, got married. The wedding was in Annapolis at Christmas time. The town was beautifully decorated, inside and out, garlands, wreaths, and candles everywhere! There was also snow on the ground, a perfect Christmas wedding (except for my husband, the groomsman with the flu, and his wife, the guest with a bad case of strep).


Jen adores Christmas! It's her favorite time of year so I knew I had to make a Christmas themed quilt. Once I decided what I was going to make I raided my stash. I didn't buy one piece of fabric to make this quilt. Every piece in it - the top, binding, borders and back - were ALL in my stash. I was shocked at how much red and green I had hiding! 

This quilt is named "Christmas Geese". In part because this is obviously a Christmas quilt made of flying geese but also as a nod to Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and the large goose they ate on Christmas day. 

Quilted by Regina Carter.

Indeed there are custom religion writing service companies whose ultimate goal is to provide Religion Research Paper Services since they are aware most religion and theology part-time students lack enough time to complete their college religion and theology assignments.
