    Every year I make 60 Christmas cards for my mother-in-law to send out. I use on my scrapbook and stamping supplies to create an original card. This year I am going to make fabric cards a la DJ's tutorial:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-52368-1.htm

    Now I need a saying to go inside the card. Can you help me? Maybe just one sentence or a few words that ties in "quilts" and "Christmas." My MIL is sentimental, religious, and has a good sense of humor -- so the sky's the limit.

    I am amazed at the epitaphs you quilters came up with on another thread -- almost died laughing -- so I KNOW your creative minds can help me please.

    My DMIL thanks you. I do, too!

    SewTinker,

    Thanks so much for your creative sayings! I am for sure going to use one of these (or maybe a few) in my MIL's Christmas cards. I appreciate your help with this little project. Now that you've done the hard part, I can get busy with the cutting, folding, and sewing.

    XOXOXO,
    MomToBostonTerriers
