    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.

    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?

    REDTHREAD: I wish I had a source for these panels but I'm sorry I don't. I would suggest googling it by the name. Chances are you just might find one or two that someone is selling on Etsy etc. Good luck!!

    Thank you everyone for the lovely compliments, I appreciate it very much. It is such a simple project, not very difficult at all, but it is just so very cheerful. This time of year quick and easy projects are things most appreciated! Thank you again!!
