    What I really like are the triangles in the border! It is so unexpected! For some reason it brought a smile to my face! :D

    Patrice:
    I have a ton of those little cloth ornaments too. They are tucked away in a drawer in the basement (for about 40 years!) I might have to resurrect them and do what you did and make them into a quilt rather than into ornaments for the tree we NO LONGER put up! Yes, I said no longer put up. We foster kittens and learned a few years ago kittens and Christmas trees don't necessarily mix well. Now we put the tree up outside in front of our picture window and decorate it with silk flower poinsettias and let the kittens "try" to climb the window rather than the tree.

    we had a tree one year, plus kitten, plus cat, plus dog

    the cat would eat the tinsel. the dog would play with whichever ornaments she could reach. and the kitten had a blast climbing around in it. i rearranged the ornaments so the lower were unbreakables. didn't bother replacing the tinsel, but "enjoyed" the decorated litter box, and eventually got used to that little face or just the shining eyes peaking at me from the branches.

    luckily, no animals were hurt in the living or telling of this story so i feel free to laugh at the memory. :P :lol:

    That is SOOOOOOOOOOO neat that you were able to use those. They made a lovely quilt - you and your Mom did "GOOD"!

    Maybe you should do something with at least some of the others to keep for yourself? Just as a remembrance?? Community quilts can wait. You might make a nice "snuggle" quilt for yourself with 1 or 2 in it plus any other pieces from Mom that will remind you of nights on the sofa with your head in her lap = "comfort time".

    After I get a little better - I have a few of those to use.

    Grammy, I'm back! Where did you find the pattern for this Christmas Quilt? I'd love to make one.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    For my Christmas quilt, I just used some sampler blocks in Christmas colors. Some of the applique came from enlarging pictures from Christmas cards. I gave the quilt to my son and his wife. I do plan to make another one for myself when I get time.
