Santa Quilt Done!

I still cannot believe that I finished my Santa quilt. I can thank my soon to be born (due January 4th) grandson. When my sons were growing up, I always thought it would be fun to have seasonal/holiday quilts. Life was to crazy to make that happen. This was part of my thinking when I asked the Friendship Bee to make Santa blocks for me in 1996. I'm thrilled! The rod is not long enough which is why it's not hanging straight and I decided not to move the nails. I'm not sure anyone will notice except me. With my extended family coming for Christmas (15 people this year), I don't have time to go shopping. The quilt brings back such great memories and certainly warms up the living room. Guess I am going to have to start working on the Halloween quilt that I had wanted to make years ago. It just might be done by the time my grandson knows what Halloween is all about. Life is good! I hope it is for you too.


  1. Love the quilt Karen it turned out well! One year I made both of my daughters Christmas quilts and I do not know where the energy came from.

    Happy Holidays to you and your family!
