It's a Wonderful Life  
  Francie's Quilts  
Francie Skarich is a huge fan of "It's a Wonderful Life" and has become a good friend.

Years ago at Christmastime, she started sending me a European speciality pastry called potica (pronounced po-TEET-sa) bread. It's rolled, and inside are brown sugar, nuts and all kinds of goodies. It is so delicious! I heat it, slather it with butter, then yum! In December 2001, she sent three for Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter. They freeze well.

Last Christmas, she really topped them all. This handmade quilt measures 35-by-48 inches. It is all about Zuzu and the film. She hand-stitched angels holding roses and, of course, one holding potica bread. Each square has real bells so that the quilt always jingles. Movie stills and a copy of her Zuzu Society certificate are printed and hand-sewn on this beautiful piece.
