Today I thought you might like to see a project that I did for the 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' magazine, winter issue. For some time I have had visions of a crazy quilted santa claus dancing about in my head and I finally acted upon it and this is the result...
His beard and his hat were done with crazy quilting and the face was appliqued using an image I found online.
Hopefully you can see more of the details in the closeup. I think you can likely click on the pictures to embiggen them more.
The pattern and instructions are available in the Winter 2016 issue of the 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' magazine which you can find HERE.
Today your quote is from Ediwn Osgood Grover...."Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows; who shares his joys with those who are sad; whose hand is never closed against the needy; whose arm is ever outstretched to aid the weak; whose sympathy is quick and genuine in time of trouble; who recognizes a comrade and brother in every man he meets upon life's common road; who lives his life throughout the entire year in the Christmas spirit"
Would that we could all be like Santa Claus.
