    How beautiful! I'll bet it put a smile on both of your faces to see what you were both able to create! (Remember, he picked the material!) :mrgreen:

    wow Colleen! that is beautiful! i am so excited after seeing this. long story short, i'm working on an asian block-of-the-month for my daughter (adopted from Vietnam) and this would be perfect to coordinate with it! i can use the 'scraps'! i've just inquired via e-mail from my local quilt shop to see if they can get the pattern by Betty Blais.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

    That is just gorgeous. Are you going to make it a wall hanging? It is "suitable for framing," it is so good!

    What a nice Christmas story too!
