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!
