Machine applique and pieced quilt. Working on quilting it now......
Very cute, I love Santas
this is wonderful
You must be a fabric addict like me, it would have taken a while to collect all of the different santas! Absolutely charming Chirstmas Quilt!
What a fun Christmas quilt, Janet!
By the way - what applique pattern did you use for all of your Santas???
This quilt was a Block of the Month from The Gallery in Mercer, PA. It required completing 4 blocks a month. I got behind about half way through and ended up completing six months of blocks in two weeks! I was just a tad bit tired of looking at Santa!!! The quilt is huge, 96x108. Most of the applique was machine completed using the stitch that looks most like the blanket stitch on my machine. I did use some decorative stitching for beards and fur trims and some fancier straight stitching for details. After I quilt it (almost done), I will embelish the top with buttons, ribbons and other bling. It has been quite fun to make, but I am very glad it is almost done!! I plan on hanging it in a spare bedroom and may use it on the bed at Christmas, or it may hang on the wall year round!!
Thank-you for your kind words!!! I can point out the mistakes if you want. :)
I love your Santa quilt!
