Christmas Quilt

Merry Christmas Eve! 
My Christmas quilt has been delivered so now I can show it off. 

 I had these twelve blocks finished for some time, but never put them together.  I had the ideas a few years to turn them into three Christmas table runners, but then a better idea came to mind.  When I asked my mom what she wanted for Christmas all she wanted was a hug.  At first I told her I didn't know how to wrap a hug.  But then I figured if I put all these blocks together into a quilt she could wrap herself up in hugs from me all the time.   The idea came to me about two weeks before Christmas so I got busy sewing.

   This will be the first year I am not home for Christmas Eve.  I will be at the in-laws. So when she is missing me on Chrsitmas Eve she can wrap up in this Christmas Quilt and get a hug from me.  :)
