I have very few Christmas season quilts, not due to lack of wanting to make some. Work so gets in the way sometimes!
I was lucky to win the center of this quilt in our quilt bee's block exchange in the early1990's (every year Vicky R would make one of these Santas as her "block"; there was way more work put into it than you normally would think of as a quilt block. We all wished we would win a Santa, and for two years in a row, I did!)
I added the borders, snowflakes (sequins) and quilting. It hangs with honor by my front door every year.
This is the second Santa block I won, the following year. Yay me! I plan to include this in a "someday" Christmas quilt with other miscellaneous Christmas blocks.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to my quilt buddies!
