  1. Lee Ann L. says:

    I’m reading through old posts. I’m not sure if I would ever make a holiday quilt. This one is nice though!

  2. Caralyn Turner says:

    This is such a quick quilt to make that I’ll be making several as gifts to the Honor Flight veterans and other charities.

  3. SewLindaAnn says:

    I would like to make a holiday quilt for some random person I’ve never met.

  4. Meredith says:

    I have a pattern for a primitive, applique Christmas quilt. I want to make it in two colorways, one for each on my elementary-age children.

  5. Bev Gunn says:

    Since I amake most of my quilts lap size and give them to kids who have had cancer, I think my baby grandson definitely ought to go the the top of my list! Can’t believe how big he is at 5 weeks! If I wait too much longer, I will have to make a full sized quilt for him!

  6. Bev B says:

    I would like to treat myself to a holiday quilt.

  7. Kerri J. says:

    I think this quilt will become a gift for my friend who helped pick out the fabric. I think she’ll be in for a big surprise!

  8. Lorri says:

    I would make one for my mom. She sews but she doesn’t quilt. She would love it so much.

  9. Madeline says:

    I’d like to make a holiday quilt for my husband, who has survived cancer, and can celebrate this year. Also, he indulges my love of sewing, realizing it is my sanity, and more fabric is just a good investment! He also brags too much about how many quilts I make for others.

  10. Mary says:

    I would make a Christmas quilt for one of my daughters who is just starting to collect decor for Christmas. Then I would have to make two more for my other daughters. My sewing is neverending!

  11. Heather Seibel says:

    I would love to make a Christmas quilt for my Mom. I’ve made Dad some cozy quilts for afternoon naps, but Mum doesn’t have one just for her. Christmas is her favourite time of year, so a Christmas quilt with dedicated seasonal fabric would make her most happy!

  12. Carol says:

    It would be special to make a holiday quilt for my daughter, who will likely spend her first Christmas season away from home in another state, working at her first “real” job after college.

  13. Nina says:

    I would love to make a holiday quilt for my Mother-in-law as she is hard to buy gifts for.

  14. tina hatch says:

    I would like to make a quilt for myself this year, to remind me of all those past lovely memories with family and friends now gone, the traditions and warmth of what the season means,the last few years have taken me away from celebrating and to be honest I sort of miss it.

  15. Kaye M. says:

    I would like to make a holiday quilt for my little grandson who is almost 3 yr. old. He would like to have a new quilt so that he could use it to make a pretend “tent”!

    I’ve never made a holiday quilt yet, so could use one in my own home to throw over the back of the couch!

  17. Jocelyn says:

    I have a friend who is a widow who is struggling with some health issues right now. Mostly she is having difficulty with her vision. I really would love to make a quilt for her this Christmas. It is definitely on my to do list.

  18. Lisa Marie says:

    I want to make a holiday quilt for my aunt who loves quilts and was kind enough to travel 6 hours one way to attend a quilt show with me even though she doesn’t make quilts herself. I’ve given her numerous quilts over the years but never a holiday themed quilt.

  19. Evelyn says:

    Block Y was the first applique pattern I learned back in 1980! It was called Honey Bee. I made my in browns and gold! How different it looks in Christmas Colors!

  23. Nancy D. says:

    I’m actually making one for my husband, but I’d like to make one for my mom too.

  24. Bev Gunn says:

    I need to get the hockey puck going and make a quilt for a precious new baby boy who will still be too young at Christmas to remember it, but he would have a quilt from his MamMaw as a reminder of the love we have for him!!

  25. Carol Vickers says:

    My mom would have loved one….but unfortunately I started quilting after she passed away. I’d love to make one now for my very favorite aunt!

  27. MarciaW says:

    I would make a holiday quilt for my nephew and his new little baby )my grandniece)…so he can wrap her well during cold weather.

  28. Lyn says:

    I’d be greedy and make it for myself! :-) Living in Texas, I miss the snowy winters of the Northeast, and a Christmas lap quilt would remind me of them. (Of course, I don’t miss having to shovel or drive in the snow/ice!)

  29. Judy says:

    I would make this quilt for my younger daughter who is moving into her own apartment soon and will need a little Christmas cheer.

  36. V. O'C says:

    I’d make it for my husband (and Val’s quilt is perfect!). He used to by a “Bah Humbug” kind of guy, but now loves the Christmas Holiday season, and I’d like to reward him for that with a cozy Christmas throw to keep him company by the fire place.

  37. Henria O. says:

    I’d make it for my mother-in-law. We won’t get to see her this Christmas so it would be nice to send a quilt instead!

  38. wilma young says:

    I would love to make a Christmas quilt for my son and his wife to put in their new home.

  39. Donna Amos says:

    I would like to make a Christmas quilt for any and all of my four grandchildren, who are away at college. I think to have a special quilt to wrap up in when you are studying and know your family is thinking of you would never be forgotten.

  40. Jayne L. says:

    I would like to make it for my daughter who moved 4 years ago to Atlanta from Wisconsin. She hated winter so when it snows in ATL. she needs something to keep her extra warm and remind her of home.

  41. Betty says:

    I would most like to make a Christmas quilt for my dad who died before I learned to quilt.

  42. VickiT says:

    I want to make a quilt for my husband. He’s the most awesome man I know who helps me do the things I cannot do with my bad legs and not one time does he ever complain. When I get frustrated with my body for not allowing me to do things he gets mad at me for feeling guilty for not being able to do things around our house and says that’s why HE is here and it’s part of his job to help me. *sigh* I’m so lucky to have him and would love to make him a quilt because he deserves it so much. I’m hoping between all the reading I’ve done and my beginning quilt piecing class I’m taking right now that I’ll be able to make one for him.

  43. Making a quilt to raffle off in our church “Holiday Fair” with a Christmas theme is my plan this year. This has been a fun quilting experience….hope you continue to use this format. Thanks.

  44. Barb Colvin says:

    I’d love to make a Christmas quilt for my bff Lynn–something for her to wrap up in while her grandkids open presents :)

  45. Amanda Stelmach says:

    I would make a quilt for my MOM. She was the one who purchased my first sewimg machine for me several years ago for Christmas. Then about 2 years ago for my birthday & Chistmas my parent purchased me a sewing cabinet. And my mom purchased me a inexpensive table to cut all my fabric and to use for family holiday dinner and was purchased around Thanksgiving. Needless to say it only has been used for quilting. This would be a nice gift to give her for the holiday’s since she has purchased the big items for me to quilt with around the Christmas holiday.
    I can’t believe we are thinking about Christmas ideas already. Where has the year gone.

  46. Helen says:

    I would love to make this quilt for my house for all my guests to enjoy over the holiday season.

  47. KT says:

    I would make a holiday quilt for my mom. When I was in jr. high she took a quilting class and made one quilt–for me! She loves Christmas, so I would like to make a holiday quilt for her.

  48. carolyn Halt says:

    This quilt will be a donation quilt for breast cancer patients.

    I think I’d make this for my Dad.

    I would love to make a holiday quilt for our daughter who lives in the Middle East. She needs reminders of home traditions.

  51. Jennifer says:

    The person I’d most like to make a Christmas quilt for is my husband. He loves putting up lavish Christmas decorations for everyone to enjoy. It would be nice for him to have a “decoration” for his sole enjoyment.

  52. Gwen says:

    I would most like to make a Christmas Quilt for my sister who is struggling in her battle with pancreatic cancer.

  53. Debi Montgomery says:

    I would make this one to donate to the kids cancer center at the hospital so they have a little sparkle while waiting for Christmas this year.

  54. Jan LaBeause says:

    For my cousin. He lost his father and his daughter this year, so the holidays will be really rough for him and his family.

  55. Kristen says:

    Every year I try to get one started and finished for my son…and it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe this year will be the year! :)

  56. paskiaq says:

    I really want to make one for my mom :)

  65. Antonia says:

    jewelry.
