    After waiting a year to afford getting this quilted, I finally have it finished for a gift this year. I love this pattern and collected Christmas fabric for a couple of years before deciding what pattern to do. I actually made 4 quilts! 2 for family gifts and 2 for us. One for a daughter that is very picky, so I figure if she doesn't like it, she only has to have it out at Christmas time! The third picture is on the design wall.

    That's beautiful. So all four are alike? I know what you mean about saving up for quilting.

    All 4 have various star blocks, but all have different borders. I am just so glad to finally have these done.....waiting to be quilted for over a year. I was holding back because of the cost of backing and then lo and behold, I ended up having enough in my stash!! All were white or off white and one had stars and another had snowflakes.

    Beautiful! Beautiful! Be sure to tell Picky Girl not to put it in the attic with the rest of the Christmas decorations.

    Hey, that's good "Picky Girl". Would she appreciate the humor if I call her that? She is honest, so I will be able to tell if she likes it. Most of the time when I show her something I'm working on, she doesn't even say anything. Oh well. I will post what she says.

    What an incredibly beautiful quilt! It deserved to be professionally quilted--the quilting added even more to its beauty! Well done!

    I love them! I want a Christmas quilt someday. You can always adopt me and I will not be picky. I always appreciate handmade gifts!

    What a beautiful quilt/heirloom.

    Even if she isn't fond of the quilt now, given time, she will realize how much love and time went into it.

    Your recipients will be thrilled with their gifts.

    Merry Christmas to you, too!

    What a lovely quilt!

    If picky girl doesn't like it, send it my way......I
    (I'll send it back during Christmas so she can use it)

    Actually, I can relate to your problem as my daughter is also "picky". She doesn't want anything that looks like a traditional quilt-----it must be modern looking, etc. "She" hasn't seen all the different kinds of quilts being made, has she?.

    Well, it was disappointing to say the least. she wasn't thrilled. She asked if I would make her another afghan! She say's that they are softer. Oh well, her husband's reaction was a mite better. When I said that because she was so picky, I made a Christmas one so she only had to have it out for the season, she laughed.

    I just have to let it go, after crying about it when I went to bed.

    This is her quilt again and the other corners are mine for the couch.
