How wonderful! It has been fun to watch you finish up the quilts - glad to hear they were so well received!


Isn't it fun to watch people receive a gift you hoped would be appreciated and know they love it!? Great gifts. You really nailed it!

As for your brother-in-law I think it is absolutely fabulous that your family means so much to him. The medallion quilt you gave him is stunning.
Your sister's quilt is my favorite among the many you gifted. I hope everyone enjoys their quilt to its fullest potential.
Looking forward to a great new year in 2017.

What a wonderful story! I know each one of your family members will cherish their quilt for years to come.

Sounds like you have a happy heart, Nicole!! A lot of your time and money went into these quilts and I'm glad that they were appreciated. Happy New Year.

Judy Fox

You have a BIG heart and made so many friends and relatives happy. Don't you love the fact that your family appreciates your passion for quilting? I know I do.

Jennifer Gwyn

That made me cry a bit... He obviously still misses your sister very much. But you helped turn it around for me with the "matches her cat" line. It's always a plus when you can match the cat hair in the house.

Wonderful memories Nicole for you and your family as well. So sweet about your brother in law. YOu are having a very special holiday season this year. may you have a very Happy New Year 2017.

Heart warming and sweet gifts for your family. It hardly gets any better. Happy New Year!


Teared up about your brother-in-law following your sister's 'rituals' folding the quilt just so. Now he can arrange the one he was gifted the way it 'goes' on his red couch! And, what is it with pets & quilts?? As you said, the cat & quilt match!!


I loved hearing how your family will cherish your quilts. It is surprising how men react to quilts...they see the skill, time, and precision needed to accomplish such an item. I know it did your heart good to give to your family something you made yourself this Christmas and to know they loved your quilts so much. Looking forward to your posts in the New Year!


It's so great to hear that everyone valued your quilts so much! I've learned to only gift handmade items to certain people. I think the reaction of your BIL is such a great story! No need to worry about that quilt being loved and used.


I'm so happy to hear that your BIL loves the quilt you gave for christmas it's such a sweet story!
Believe it or not the first thing that sprang to my mind when I saw the second picture was that the quilt matches the cat (lol, but I love cats^^)
I'm wishing you an amazing and fantastic nd beautiful year 2017 and looking forward to read your posts:-)


I'm praying that 2017 isn't going to be as bad as many of us worry it will be. I will be burying myself in sewing, books, and the gym. #wishmeluck

Big hugs!


What a great story, it made me teary thinking about him rearranging the quilt, it's so sweet. He definitely appreciates quilts, which is nice. Glad to hear you had a nice holiday and can't wait to see what you're up to in 2017. Happy New Year!


A wonderful story. Bless him and you.
