Design Wall.... or not

This week I have several projects in the works,
but nothing really on my Design Wall.

Using a Charm Pack and a Jelly Roll of bright fabrics,
I cut another baby quilt out and have started
piecing it together.

This one will be for donation to a group
my church supports.

On Saturday I picked up
"Mardi Gras"
from my Long Arm Quilter!!
She did a beautiful job on this quilt.

The binding is sewn on and ready to hand stitch.

I was able to prep three more blocks for my
Classic Santa Quilt.

Making these with wool applique
really adds depth to the blocks.

I must say...
I have never seen a dark haired Santa before now.
He is called the Knickerbocker Santa.
His name comes from being the
Patron Saint of the New York Historical Society,
(also known as the Knickerbockers)
who had their annual dinners on
December 6, St. Nicholas Day.
(His looks like he is busting a Disco dance move!)

So there is your useless tidbit of information for the day.

Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others are creating.

Happy Quilting!
