Almost…Ho! Ho! Ho!….

…Home!  That’s what we are!!  We should get home sometimes this evening!!  YIPPEEE!!  Can’t wait!

In the meantime…here’s something wonderful for you to feast your eyes on while we are traveling the day away…

My friend and fellow wool lover, Claire, started the first block to the Heart to Hand Christmas quilt!!

Isn’t he wonderful!  Claire is a master at wool applique!

Such a wonderful face and love those eyes!!  And the garland around his hat is the perfect touch!!

Here’s a picture of the pattern so that you can see where Claire has been and where she is headed!  Such a gorgeous pattern!

Thanks Claire for the inspiration!!  A wonderful start to a wonderful project!!

Finally if you like this quilt as much as I do…

…then you’ll want to hustle over to Jan Patek’s Blog… It’s a Jan Patek original called Lincoln’s Platform and she is giving it away FREE as a way to honour the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War!!  This quilt is made out of  homespun cottons using the Lincoln's Platform block to commemorate the event. Thanks Jan, it’s a beauty!

Have a wonderful, woolie Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P

  4. I wish I had kept the wools that I thought were garbage, would have been nice for quilting.

  5. The Santa from the quilt is a good one. I have drooled over the pattern online several times.
    As far as I can tell, Jan's pattern was only available on the 12th. I did not download it and no longer found it on the blog.
