Christmas in North Carolina

We arrived here on Sunday night and decided that not to wait until New Year’s eve to open our presents.


My son was very surprised and pleased with his Adirondack quilt.  I was happy to see it on his bed.  018

A king size quilt just does not show on a queen size bed.

003The original pattern was for a double bed and was square.  I enlarged it to make it a king size rectangle by adding pieced and Seminole patchwork borders along with plain borders.

I named the quilt Adirondack Dreaming and printed the label with one of Tom’s pictures of the Adirondacks.  I found the perfect sentiment to use for the label:

005Adirondack Dreaming

You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind…because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.”

Frederick Buechner, Telling the Truth

It seemed appropriate for someone who enjoyed the Adirondacks so much when he lived in upstate New York.
