    Good job with the printing, piecing perfect, and the quilting is fantastic. I agree you are ahead for next year. And it will be so enjoyable when you take it out next Christmas.

    The pictures came from various web sites. If you do a google search for vintage postcard images you should easily find many of the ones I used. Flickr had the best selection.

    What a beauty!

    It looks so much like an heirloom of years long ago.
