Oh, how I love these patchwork quilts that speak of love! Yes! Beautiful! Made me wipe my eyes.

This is delightful! I love the joke that Merry and Pippin played, and the resourceful way the lasses decided to use the cloak. I especially love the reason for them making the quilt - not for using but to show everyone how proud they are of him - and how proud everyone else should be as well. I'm sure it's a winner at the Fair! Thank you for this! *hugs*

Author Reply: Thanks! Parts of this story, at least, have been buzzing around in my head for years--I had a quilt the Free Fair of 1540 that had a patch of Lorien cloak in it and I had to figure out exactly how that started as I couldn't see anyone in Sam's family just cutting into the thing.

Decorative quilts would be entirely new to Sam, but it does have a purpose. I'm sure that this one wins.

You do realize, don't you, that now I want a picture of that quilt! *LOL* If it could actually be made, it'd go so well in the photo gallery at MPTT! It's a pity that no one around here knows how to make Elven cloaks! :(

This was wonderful! Yay for Sam!

Author Reply: It probably could be made, but pieced quilts that depict scenes are really, really tough and I, at least, have no experience with any of it! But I'd love to see it as well.

As for elven cloaks, I suppose one could always substitute camo... (now THAT leads to some interesting mental pictures)

What a sweet notion!

I think my favorite part was the little stunt Merry and Pippin pulled! It seems very likely the sort of thing they'd get up to!

Author Reply: Thanks!

You know those cloaks would be highly useful for all sorts of mischief, but I can only think of one other fic off the top of my head where that happened.
