What are you most proud of? I really love the added details and the 3-dimensional additions. The little wreaths here and there, the red star button on top of the tree, ribbons and bow, and, though it doesn't show in these photos, Santa's beard is carefully worked in little embroidered loops. It was also entirely hand quilted. I spent so many hours on this, and I still love looking at it as it hangs it on the wall every December.

I think if I'd made something as beautiful as this, I'd have to have it hanging on the wall all the year round! It's far too nice to put away and just to be got out at Christmas! I really must get around to learning paper piecing soon! Patricia

This is wonderful... I could look at this for ages and still find more to look at... Love all the little extra additions on it which makes it 3D. Thanks for sharing you have inspired alot of us to try something similar.

Beautiful to look at. Wow, this took some time to design and sew. The rocking horse block stole my heart! Great job 2strings. Love your work.

Thank so much. I made this seven or eight years ago. It did take forever, but that was mainly because I was still working. With all of the take-home work, school teachers don't have a lot of free time. I've often thought about trying to reproduce it in more modern fabrics and redoing some of the blocks. Some of the paper piecing could use improvements and some of the blocks would be nicer done with applique. A thought for the future.
