    Santa's Coming Advent Quilt

    This is one of those wonderful quick projects for the holidays. I bought the pre printed panel and made a cute wallhanging for Christmas. Although it is technically not a traditional quilt.... I still consider it as one. It is very difficult to see but I stitched around every little part of santa and the background with monofilament. In person you can see the definition much better than in the photos. I added a thin batting and backing plus borders to the panel. The little ornaments on santa's tree are backed with felt with a hanger of braid between layers. This is such a fun quilt for the holidays, as everyone can take part in removing each ornament as Christmas approaches. On the back of the quilt I created a pocket to store the ornaments.
    It is based on the book';'Santa's Coming' by Nancy Halvorsen from Art to Heart.

    This is a lovely holiday quilt. You have created some fun family traditions here. Nice workmanship. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I made two of these a few years ago when the panel came out. I have been looking for more of the same panel ever since, do you have a source?
