Old Fashioned Santas

Quilt #61

Old Fashioned Santas
This little quilt was made way back in 1997 from a picture I saw in a magazine. The Santas have beards made of thermolam batting, glass beads for eyes and fuzzy wool for trim. The applique was fused and stitched with a straight stitch along the edges.

The chekerboard background is embellished with a variety of neutral coloured buttons.

The batting is thermolam and the quilting is stitch-in-the-ditch and diagonal lines on the squares that do not have buttons.

Old Fashioned Santas measures 18” x 25”.
