Blogger Quilt Festival 2009

Blogger Quilt Festival 2009


Mr. Santa Claus is my favorite quilt I have done, but working on my new grand babies quilt and it is going to be up there with him. I hope to finish it soon and will be back with pictures of it.


My story behind Mr. Santa Claus, I had my antique and quilt shop at the time this was made. 9/11 had just taken place and all I did was go to the shop and watch my little TV. I had to get something going, so I made this pattern and started cutting and piecing. It turned out a lot larger than I thought, but he is one of my favorites.


If you haven't been to visit every one's blog, there is some beautiful work out on blog land. Amy @ http://parkcitygirl.blogspot.com/ put this together, with some great giveaways.
Sneak Peek at Baby Quilt, nothing is sewn down as for as applique.


Keep Stitchen'

He is super sweet. I can see Mr. Santa becoming an heirloom around which many traditions will be practiced and memories made.
