red for our home and my mother loved it. This year, she will receive this one as a Thanksgiving gift. The colors are more in keeping with her delicate, victorian sensibilities. Oh, I hope she loves it. You could easily make one of these before the holidays for yourself or for someone you love. Visit Gail Pan at her blog for the "A Christmas Wish" patterns and just stitch a block each night. The panels come together so quickly. You could even do a four-block version and choose your favorite words. Use your favorite colors and keep it up all year, if you like. If you need inspiration, visit the flickr group to see what others stitchers and quilters have done.
