Holy Cow! I ALMOST MISSED IT!! YIKES!
I’ve been so busy around the house and at work that I’ve not been checking all my favorite blogs and I almost missed Darlene’s great Christmas Quilt Show 2011!
My official entry is this super fun Santa quilt!!
It was completely made from fabrics I already had in my stash…many were just scraps!
I put the top together at a fall quilt retreat about 7 years ago, then quilted it when I got back home!! Quilted fun swirls in the beards!
The pattern is in this awesome Art to Heart book by Nancy Halvorsen called “Santa’s Coming”.
I loved mixing and matching the different beiges and whites for the beards and mustaches!
And guess who else loves this quilt???
Yup! My sewing buddy, Yogi! His job is to test out all my quilts to make sure they are snuggly and toasty warm!! What a job!
Before you go, let me show you the other Christmas quilts that are out and about in my house this month!! This one hangs in my living room!
This new one is over my mantle now…just finished it last week!
This was over my mantle before the one above but is now hanging over our étagère’ in the family room!
This one was made using the same 2” squares technique as the one above, but this guy has slipped and fallen down!! Oooops!!
This is my one of my newest ones! I just finished this one at last month’s bee day!! Very vintagy looking fabric!!
This one was a Moda Bake Shop project during their “Christmas in July 2011” series! (You can go HERE to learn how to make one of your own!!)
This is another quilt of my own design called “Ribbon Candy” that I taught at a local quilt shop a few years ago.
Yogi likes this one, too!! LOL!!
This one is hanging on my front door this month!! Just loved his charming face!!
This little table topper was super fun and quick to make!! Love his mistletoe sprig!!
This was one of Miss Rosie’s Schnibbles patterns!! It fits perfectly on our ottoman!
