    What to do with Santa

    Name:  santa.jpg
Views: 501
Size:  121.1 KBI have a weakness for novelty fabrics and bought 1 1/2 yards of this at a clearance sale last Spring for $2.00/yard. I could see a log cabin lap quilt or wall hanging with Santa as the centers. Now that I have time to work on it I'm wondering if he isn't too big - around 8" for the larger Santas. Any ideas?

    Make a log cabin with a big Santa in the middle of it.

    Cute fabric....I can see why you chose it. You could use a large piece (uncut) like you would a panel then border it out to the size you want. The borders could be strips or pieced blocks surrounding the center panel.

    I was thinking Snowball blocks too. You could also use it for Warm Wishes blocks. It would look adorable in a tree skirt done in the center of Log Cabin Star. It is mighty cute fabric and I would have added it to my stash too.

    If you don't want to waste any of the santa you can fussy cut them at weard angles and add material to create a block
    I think that is wonderful material.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    Thanks for the replies. I have just finished a few snowball quilts, so I'm leaning toward warm wishes, which I hadn't thought about but think will look good, or some kind of wonky log cabin.
