Crazy Quilt Christmas Tree at Crown Center

On the Friday after Thanksgiving they turn on all the lights at Crown Center in downtown Kansas City. We stumbled on this event several years ago and it has become a tradition in our family. I stock up on fabric for my business and we go to Crown Center and watch them turn the lights on. This year we went to the Hallmark Visitors center. We hadn't been there in several years and we look around at all the displays they have. They had a display with all of the beautiful Christmas trees that the employees had made for the original owner of Hallmark. I walked by them and continued on. My husband says to me (after I had left the room), did you see the CRAZY QUILT CHRISTMAS TREE? Of course, I stopped so fast that probably the child I was pushing in his stroller probably got whiplash! I could not believe I had missed it. I then began taking a multitude of pictures much to the annoyance of one lady standing there! Enjoy the pictures I took, it was a very awesome tree and I would love to make one of my own! What an idea!


  1. What an unusual thing! Thanks for sharing it with us. That angel must have been something to see in person. Imagine how long that's been around, then! I'm guessing, from looking at your own work, the colors were wrong to catch your eye. =)

  2. Wow isn't that amazing! There is no end to crazy quilting as long as the imagination is there. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I thought you had your shop on the sidebar? I sent someone over because it was easier to remember this than the shop, and now I see it isn't there. =)

  4. Hey, I really like your blog. Looks fabulous and your ideas are all so original looking. Love the tree. And I love the pic of your beautiful family.
