2012 Christmas Quilt Show

We all love a quilt show , well it just so happens that Michele at Quilting Tutorial  is hosting a wonderful Christmas quilt show , you can enter your favorite quilt now until the 30th of Nov. and then in Dec. we get the opportunity to vote for our favorite quilts and oh did I mention there are prizes to be won . Several blogs that I follow have now entered a quilt so I thought why not, I have plenty of Christmas wall hangings I can choose from but to pick my all time favorite it would have to be this very special to me wall hanging. I have shared this before but I feel it deserves showing again .
This Santa was a drawing by my sweet granddaughter when she was just 8 years old , I traced each and every line she drew and created this wall hanging , she had even added those snowflakes, it was drawn on a large piece of construction paper so this was the actual size of the drawing in its original form . Alyssa will be seventeen tomorrow , Happy Birthday Alyssa !!
 Be sure to head on over to see the quilts in this amazing show and why not enter one yourself . Go here to read all the rules and see the quilts on display so far.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day.
 hugs Sheila

  19. That is so cool! I really love that you rendered your granddaughter's drawing into a mini quilt. Now I must do this with a couple of favorites from my girls' art days during K-2 years. I know they're still somewhere!

  27. Best story I've seen yet. I'm not sure my six year old's recent drawing entitled "A Turkey in the Ballroom", complete with chandelier, would look nearly as adorable as a quilt as this santa does, but you inspire me to look at her drawings with a new eye.
