While some of you are looking around different fabric shops on the Internet have any of you seen a Large Santa Block material. I am wanting to make a Christmas Quilt next year and want to use a Santa block about 16x16 or 18x18. in the center. This size could vary. I have looked at all the fabric stores in my area and cannot find one. Found some on E-Bay but none was as large as I am looking for. Any help you may give will be appreciated.
Thanks
Beth

I'm a little lost. Do you mean fabric with a picture square of Santa or pattern for a santa block?

Sorry for not making my self clear. I am wanting a large Santa printed on fabric that I can use in the center of a quilt. Then I will fill in around it with 4 1/2 blocks from different Christmas material

if you can't find the pre-printed fabric, here's a link to an applique pattern that could probably be sized to fit your needs. it's for a tree-skirt, but i'm sure could be adapted since it's four individual santa blocks.

Do you have a Walmart around you? One that is still selling fabric? I'm just suggesting, because at our Wally World, they often carry large panels for Holidays and such, for vests and various craft items to make. Just a thought,

Beth, did a little checking on ebay. You might want to check there too. I put in fabric, then cotton then Santa and came up with 12 pages, and I checked about 5 pages, anyway here are three I found that may help. The first one is to make a santa head and is 27 inches. I think you might be able to use it, but there are a couple more to I am listing. But check the rest of the pages. You may find something. :D

160179829568
320182874221


These are the item numbers. You should be able to put them in the search box and bring the santa's right up. Hope this helps. I had no luck with the hop finding Santa's!
