tradition



Our Christmas quilt comes out at this time every year, our family's traditions captured in a traditional mode.  A Red Wagon book inspired it.

In this block, Santa is about to stuff himself into the chimney, apparently unnoticed by the boy, his two dogs and two cats (the Klebaum count at that time) and two frolicking rabbits (added as an homage to my quilter-friend-and hare-lover Mary Ann Harmon Johnson).



Needle-turn applique was never my forte (note the rounded star and moon 'points').

Beautiful Christmas quilt. I hope you'll enter it in my Virtual Christmas Quilt Show.
