    Here are two of my most recent wedding presents. the first one is a special nontraditional colored one for my niece and her new husband whose theme for their wedding was "Superman", so I used superman colors. Her husband is a pilot for the Air Force and flies the refueling planes for the troops in Iraq. The second one I saw the pattern made using Thangles, since I didn't want to purchase any more stuff to make these with I made a couple of changes and used Rhonda's HST method.

    I especially like the second one! Just what I needed to get in the Christmas mood. I don't put up a tree anymore but my son puts up three...and he likes anything quilted. I really raised that kid right ( even tho he's 47 now ) :lol: :lol:

    No tree!! Even a small tree gets the mood going (smile). Tell him to put one up for you. My friend makes all her own ornaments and it is beautiful (she leaves her tree up all year).

    Thank you everyone. It is the one gift I don't have to worry about being duplicated. :)
