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.
VAL for starting the "North Pole QAL" many months ago.
