    2 Christmas gifts

    I gave these 2 quilts as gifts to the Drs I work for - they are great bosses and wonderful surgeons - and they treat me great and respect my contributions. They were both surprised and pleased and glad to see that their names are now off the list. Each quilt has a mistake on it...but that is the charm of homemade

    Thanks for looking, Pam

    I have loaned my labyrinth pattern and this makes me want to get it back and start sewing. Those are so very pretty. I am sure they are pleased (and should be).

    Beautiful quilts Pam. Nice to be appreciated. Working for doctors, let alone two surgeons is not for the faint of heart. I was office manager for a general surgeon for five years until I retired this past March. If I had done a lovely gesture like this, he probably would have checked my hand quilting and proclaimed he could do a better job!!!!

    OK, I googled the pattern name (Jennifer's Knot) and got nothing. Can you tell me where I can find the pattern and who makes it? I'd love to make one.

    Those are beautiful! I especially love the brown & green one. I'm drawn to brown & almost any other color. You did a wonderful job!

    I'm sorry it is Josephine Knot - and it is from keepsake quilting - this quilt measures 94 x 116 -it was huge
