Santa throughout the year!

Santa Throughout the Year!

The quilt with the December block attachedThere are twelve of these blocks, each one is a picture of Santa during a different month of the year.  Since I enjoy Santas so much, I wanted to be able to display Santas year round and not just during the holidays.  I got the pattern from my grandmother, who got it at the "Quilt Patch", ( a quilting store in Eugene, Oregon)  I think it was designed by a lady at the quilt patch, but I'm not sure.  It was really fun picking out the fabrics for such small things such as Mrs. Santa's hair and the fish in June's block.  Each of the white-on-white background fabrics has a different design; for example, the September school page has Raggedy Ann's and of course December's has holly.  The reds and greens are also different on each block.

January BlockOne of my favorite things about these blocks is how the picture in the center square overlaps out into the quilted star.  The pictures are fused onto the blocks.  I didn't sew around the edges because I'm not making these blocks into a full quilt.  If I decide to make a quilt out of them later, I'll probably sew around the edges on the machine with a satin stitch.  Right now, they're attached to a background block with velcro. On the first of each month I change blocks.  -  Susie
