    I love it! Very nice placement of fabrics - the little tree is perfect.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    REALLY like this! Seems more "classic" to me using the fabric/colors you did.

    This is what I love. I usually like to use quilts for more than one holiday. You can bring this out for Christmas, continue to use it for Valentines day and the green will flow into St. Patricks day. There you go!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice quilt. It is bright and cheery. I haven't tried that pattern yet, but it's on my list. I can't keep up with all the patterns and ideas out there.

    I agree, sometimes the same ole Christmas fabric gets to be stale after so many uses of it. I love how your quilt turned out with just the reds, greens and white. It looks so fresh and inviting to curl up with.
    Thanks for sharing

    Your quilt is just simply beautiful, great color choices and the tree's just add a great addition to those green blocks. Great quilt all around!

    Love Came Down

    The world was blessed at Christmas
    with a miracle of love...
    a guiding star and angel choir
    rejoicing from above.
    They pointed to a tiny babe
    within a cattle stall-
    a Saviour bringing peace on earth-
    the greatest gift of all.


    For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given...and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
