Kristin- I couldn't help jumping ahead!


I had a flash on Monday night of how I might use Ryan's Santa drawing on a quilt. He wasn't fitting into the Merry Christmas quilt as I envisioned it, so I decided to make a mini quilt just for him. The words went quickly. I plan to use applique and embroidery to transfer the Santa image to the quilt and he'll be on a round piece of the lighter fabric so he'll show up. I also want to have Ryan draw a tree so I can add that on the left. The letters will have more background fabric added and then I'll applique them on, rather than piece it so I can preserve the plaid pattern on the red fabric.
