My Christmas Countdown Calendar is done. I am so happy with it and so glad that I saw the QAL by Better off Thread and Melia Mae Quilting.
After some encouragement at a recent Boston Modern guild meeting, I decided to add a thick border of my most favorite Christmas fabric that I had featured on my Fabric Friday post here. I am so grateful for my guild friend Sarah who told me she'd spotted this fabric on the bolt at Joann's recently - this enabled me to purchase more for this project, as I had only had a half yard piece. Sarah was also kind enough to give me several pieces of adorable fabrics for this project- thank you Sarah!!!!
My favorite pocket is #5, little Santa gnomes:
I also love this Patty Young print on #15:
I backed the quilt in the giant Santa gnomes as well as a leftover piece of Jingle snowflakes.
I look forward to participating in the QAL discussion of what types of fun things to include in these pockets. If you have any fun ideas, please comment.
