Christmas in July

July 7th, 2021 No comments

Yes. We know! Who wants to be thinking about Christmas during the first week in July and during heat waves to top it all? Well, we thought about it but then found out that The Hallmark Channel is starting its Christmas movies this week. So – since they are, we are following in their footsteps. 🙂

In doing a little research, we learned that this idea started first back in 1933. We thought it much more recent! Back then, two days were given to the “holiday”, July 24th and 25th. Obviously, it has expanded since then.

Of course, just one of the many ways to celebrate this month is to start Christmas shopping now when there is no rush nor pressure. The bonus to that is less pressure and freeing up time come Black Friday and December.

We’d love you to share your ideas for Christmas in July with us. Please do. Email us at info@quiltsforsale.ca .

Here at Quilts for Sale, our way is to show you a few of our Christmas Quilts. We have them in several sizes: wall, table, bed, tree, lap/throw, and so on. Here are just a few to tickle your fancy. There is even a Quilt Top all finished and ready for a quilter to layer and quilt! Click on them and scroll down their pages for more images, details, sizes, and prices, and of course to buy one for yourself or as a gift for your family or friend.

U.S. Patriotic Quilts

July 5th, 2021 No comments

During the weekend of The Fourth there were many ways that Patriotism was displayed. Another way to display that Patriotism is with quilts, not just on The Fourth, but on other special days such as: Memorial Day, Flag Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Washington’s Birthday, Flag Day, Independence Day, Constitution Day, Election Day, and Veterans Day.

At this time, we have three beautiful, inspirational Patriotic Quilts ready and waiting for  you. They are all currently displayed on our home page and were all made by Lynn Herrmann.

What better time than now to choose one for yourself and have it ready to display the next time?  Here they are. Click on them to see their closeups and learn more about them!

Summer and Winter Quilts

June 7th, 2021 No comments

We usually associate quilts only with winter, but historically, especially in the Southern U.S., summer quilts were made and used too. The difference between the two? Summer quilts did not include batting between the top and bottom layers making them light and lovely when needed or wanted in warmer weather .

The weather here in Southern Ontario brought summer and winter quilts to mind, but in a different way. It began to look as though winter quilts could be in use all year long. With temperatures in the 40s Fahrenheit for weeks, quilts kept us snug and warm despite the fact that the month was May and they shouldn’t be needed.

Whether your area can keep using a quilt in summer or not, quilts, in many ways are handy and beautiful additions to our homes. They are not only lovely and feasts for our eyes, they keep us warm, they have a history, and quilts made by quilters or family members are treasures to be handed down through generations in our families.

So, do take a look at what Quilts for Sale has to offer – quilts made lovingly and beautifully by skilled quilters. These quilts, unlike most that are purchased, are made to last and to enjoy.

Here are just a few examples. Click on their images to see more photos and learn more about them.
