Introduction

The title story--"The Christmas Quilt"--came into being exactly as it states in the opening paragraphs. My sister, an avid quilter, had shown me the quilt top she rescued at an auction. It certainly didn't hold the same fascination for me, until she started wondering about the people behind the quilt and what their stories might have been. Now that, I could get into, and my imagination took flight.

I wrote "The Christmas Quilt" for my sister, but the next year I turned it into a story card and sent it to my friends and family at Christmas. The following year, another story was born for the holiday season, and thus began a tradition that I can't seem to stop. When I created the fifth Christmas story card, I wrote "fifth and last in the series" on the cover, but I had so many friends comment they didn't want me to stop, that I began an encore series.

One year, because the Christmas season is a time for family, friends and sharing, I asked those same family and friends to help me create Holiday Letters & Memories. I'm sure you'll find a little bit of yourself within their letters.

I am very excited and pleased to be able to share this anthology with you. I hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as I did writing about the traditions and people that make Christmas so special. Having thesetraditions surround us during this time of year is as comforting as being wrapped in a favorite quilt and sitting in front of a fire.
