Adrienne SmitkeAdrienne Smitke, the designer of this fun, Chevron-style quilt, is actually one of our staffers! Adrienne works as our Design Manager—her talents shine through so many of our books.

Of her quilt, Adrienne says, “Not everyone has room for a towering noble fir Christmas tree in their home. This wall hanging doubles as a fresh take on holiday decor and as a place to gather presents (and your family) on Christmas morning. It would also make a wonderful gift for anyone who wants a Christmas tree substitute that can be used year after year.”
