    I paper pieced these as samples for the paper piecing class I am teaching at the quilt shop down the road. They were a big hit!

    The square one I call Christmas Morning because the presents are still under the tree and the plaid border reminds me of my Dad's housecoat he wore to go downstairs and turn on the lights on the tree before we could come down and see what we got. Sigh.... snif!

    The other runner is fun with the ornaments in the border waiting to decorate the trees. It's a big tradition at our house to decorate the tree together and bring out all the ornaments that have been in the family for years, gifts from people I love or purchased on holidays.

    Thanks for looking! Janie

    Beautiful pieces and lovely stories to go with them! I would rather sit inside in the AC and think about snow, than go out in this weather! (I suppose at Christmas, we'll bemoan the weather then, too!) LOL

    They are both so cute. I love your story behind them. Makes me sentimental.

    Love the trees, one of the nicest I've seen. Is it a pattern or did you design it on your own? Could you give me the name of the pattern?
