Christmas In July

A friend approached me about designing three quilts for her grown children.
When their grandmother passed away, the mother wanted to create something very sentimental for her children. The grandmother loved Christmas and the grandchildren had wonderful memories of spending fun times with their grandmother during the  Christmas season. We decided to create a Christmas tree quilt incorporating the tree out of the grandmother’s clothes and appliqué them onto pieces of her jeans. Everything on the front and back of the quilt is from the grandmother – even the crocheted pieces.
What do I love most about these quilts?! The fact that every Christmas, three grown grandchildren have a beautiful reminder of their grandmother and the love she shared with them at Christmas!
