Santas are coming along!

I am closer to having a finished
Classic Santa Quilt!

The Sashing and Cornerstones have been added
I am so pleased with how the top looks.

The red sashing and gold cornerstones just add to the
richness of the wool.

Now I need to decide what to use for the
Outer Border.

I've auditioned some green fabrics and have not liked them.
I don't have the right color green in my stash, so....
A trip to the quilt shop may be in order.



I went to the quilt shop and brought home some
green fabric with red, gold and blue pin dots.
I thought this would be perfect for the outer border.
It wasn't.

I ended up using the same red fabric used for the sashing and
I am very pleased.

The borders are even and smooth.
I'm short and have trouble hanging the larger quilts on
the Design Wall.

This one is ready to be sent off to my
Long Arm Quilter!


Have a great day
Happy Quilting!

I like that you use the same red fabric for the outer border. The spot remains on your beautiful appliqu├ęs! :-)
