The quilt guild I am a member of gave us a Christmas challenge at the September meeting . The rules were to use the fabric provided somewhere in the project and to use a book or magazine from our guild library and then present the finished project at our December meeting . So you probably are wondering what fabric was provided , well the answer is the fabric I used for Santa's bag as well as for the binding . This project is a design by Kim Van Rossum of Harbour Quilts here in Nova Scotia and was in the Canadian Quilter magazine in the winter 2007 issue . The pattern should have been enlarged by 50% but since my printer doesn't have that feature I decided to go with the smaller size using the pieces as they were in the magazine and this is the result .Nice to have that finished well before the deadline ;-) As always thanks for stopping by for a visit , I appreciate it so much .
