    Memories of Christmas wallhanging

    I found this darling Alexander Henry fabric last year, it immediately brought back memories of Christmas shopping with my Grandma. I made this one for my sister and an identical one (except for the label) for me. It was a fun, nostalgic, quick project. I thought about my dear Grandma all the while.

    Charming and sweet wall quilts. I love the fabrics and your design and I know they will mean so much to your sister also. I can relate to those memories too, mom, me and my sister, shopping at Woolworth's and picking out our Christmas candy and then having a sandwich and cherry coke at the lunch counter. Does any one else remember that they would hang balloons around the luncheon counter and you could choose one and "pop" it to see if the little slip of paper on the inside would get you a free or discounted ice cream sundae. Oh my, such wonderful memories!!! Thanks for reminding me.

    How did you do the label? Love the wall hangings and colors. I remember going shopping with my mother at the Globe store in Scranton, PA, eating at their restaurant and buying clear toy and ribbon candy. Wonderful memories too.

    Adorable! Your quilting makes it really standout! I never lived near my grandparents, so I don't have Christmas memories with them. But my Mom has lived 1 mile from us all my daughter's lives. Thankfully, they have wonderful memories with their grandma. What a beautiful quilt to remember your grandma by. Thanks for sharing

    I remember shopping on 16th street, too. Had lunch lots of times at the Woolworth's counter. It was something my high school friend and I did every year when we went Christmas shopping. Then another friend and I would meet downtown and leave our little ones with our DH and spend the day and have lunch. You brought back some good memories.

    Wonderful quilt, and like your colors and how you used the focus fabric. The quilting fits the quilt so nicely.
