Back in 2006, before we were married, I found this fabulous Santa fabric at a quilt shop in Edmonton, Alberta. The line of fabrics was "Good Tidings" by Diane Knott for Clothworks. I knew I had to make him a quilt featuring this fabric. My photo shows six of the nine different Santa figures.
I played with a variety of design ideas for the quilt, and settled on framing out the Santa blocks, then alternating them with log cabin blocks. There are a zillion green fabrics in this quilt, yet my shelf of greens is still packed full!

The finished quilt measures about 56" x 72", and it was completed in 2009. My friend Jan at Cat's Meow Quilting did the fabulous machine quilting on it, which you can see better in the detail photo. It is always a treat to get this quilt out when we are decorating for the holidays and hang it right next to our Christmas tree.
