HoHoHo... another FiNisH

Yes this quilt is FiNaLLy finished... insert BIG sigh of relief here... 































I think this "Santa's North Pole Village" small quilt is so QuiRKy & FuN.
I thought I was so clever finding in my stash the snowy background & after measuring it, thought I was in great shape... if I was careful... to use it ALL up. Well I didn't account for another block at the top showing Santa & his sleigh flying in the night sky did I... ooppss not enough left over for that. After MonTHs of trying to find suitable fabric to finish it...with NO luck finding any fabric that I was HaPPy with... I just decided to leave THAT block off the top.
I then went in search for the perfect border fabric & LuCKiLy I found it.
So after a few sleepless nights, more than a few worried moments & many miles driving around this city... it's all completed now & ready for use in December...
My fav block is the centre one above... & the last pic shows the backing I used.

The pattern is from the book Welcome to the North Pole by Piece of Cake Designs... called Santa's Village in Applique. My version of the quilt measures 46 inch x 52 inch.
My THanKs must go to VAL for starting the "North Pole QAL" many months ago.

Another UFO...is now a FO... yippee...

What a great quilt! Your version is so much brighter and happier than the original. I love it!

Your quilt turned out so cute! Love the border polka dots too. I made one of these a few years ago but I added some sparkle.....I may have gone a bit wild with the sparkle tho. Still haven't quilted it.

Well done - it looks great and so what if Santa and the sleigh is missing - Santa is home with Mrs Santa, the reindeer are in the Reindeer Barn and the sleigh is in the shed - no problems!!
Mine has hit a brick wall -Christmas 2015 at this rate...

I am back to being able to comment and had to come back to this post. It is wonderful to see your gorgeous quilt finished. This has been a lot of work, but it is definitely worth the effort. It will look stunning on display at Christmas. Good on you for sticking with it.

Great solution! It looks wonderful, I don't think Santa flying over the top would have added anything! And it's all set to hang this year, woohoo!!!!
