Which of these patterns are your favorite, and why?


  1. I really like the Holly Berries Tree skirt because of the rick rack and buttons! I recently purchased the kit to make Peppermint Wreath tree skirt since I loved that one too!!

  2. Wow, a tough question Jennifer. I adore each one for different reasons. Though I have two very favorites for my quilting ability as I have limitations due to health issues and intricate applique can be hard for me. If I could do the applique that I love so much, I would definitely want to do Blessings of stirs up such wonderful memories. But since it is easier for me to do regular piecing, I think I would choose either "Quilt for Hope" because I love what is represents...or Poinsettias de Noel because I really love sampler blocks and the applique in the middle is gorgeous and I think I could manage it...slowly, LOL. Big Hugs...
