My Mom has jumped right into the Christmas spirit and has begun hanging my quilts and slowly decorating the house in small stages. It looks really great so far and since I have such an abundance of Christmas related quilts and hangings in my collection, I thought that I would feature one daily. (However you can view all of the photos in my album Christmas Inspiration 2012, on my Quilter's Workshop Facebook page!)
Today I will be featuring my "Classic Santa" wall hanging (as I like to call it).
I love the look of this traditional wall hanging because Santa has a structure similar to a Nutcracker doll, and I absolutely LOVE Nutcrackers!
He is approximately 25 x 49 inches.
I used buttons for his "bell" on his hat, his eyes, and of course down the front of his coat.
I think he would look great as a door banner or as a wall hanging, you could even dress it up and hang some garland across the top of the quilt.
Below is a link to the free pattern, designed by Debbie Mumm!
If anyone creates this wall hanging I would absolutely love to see it! You could E-mail me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a picture to my Quilter's Workshop Facebook page!
Happy Christmas Crafting!
