I have a similar panel. What a wonderful way to display it! Now is on my To Do list!

Donna Kirkland

I absolutely love Christmas fabric, especially if it has cute snowmen on it. I have a good stash going and many, many patterns and projects planned. This is how I try to beat the 'Winter Depression'.... you just can't have enough Christmas around you.

I think it is absolutely perfect.


If others have "Christmas in July" then it seems natural for us to have "Christmas in March"! It's like the Quilt Fairy knew we were making those blocks for the Santa Panel
Wonderful, Pat, and our inspiration too

Betsy Albertson

That quilt can not wait to be put together, I so love it!

Maria do Carmo Pezzuto

Maridos....Que seria de nós sem eles...Pitacos(palpites fora de hora e sem importância)eles adoram,mas, eu gosto e digo sempre que vou acabar me apaixonando por ele... Soa como uma ameaça?Adorei esse painel de natal,com esses presentes.CHIQUÉRRIMO!!!!Beijos e Bençãos.


Some projects are just meant for certain days you need to do it when they are calling out to you otherwise they don't get done. I can totally understand why you are stitching up that santa in March! HEY i'm just taking down my snowmen ornaments today, really, so there you go. Make it a happy day and stitch away! I think these two look fab together. You couldn't have planned it better if you had tried. janita

Christmas quilts are my favorite, and Father Christmas is my favorite Christmas quilt theme. I like the star/Santa combination a lot.

Oh yes...awesome....I think the Santa panel looks great with the blocks!! I have a Mary Engelbreit panel I will check out with my blocks....such fun!!


Wow, that Santa panel was "meant to be" with those blocks!!! I do Christmas all year long. I totally get why you would want to the Santa panel now. LOL!


They look SO great together!!!!!!!!!! He doesn't know that you need to do these things when there is no pressure. I could play with Christmas fabric anytime!

Shirley in Canada

WOW Pat is was made just for those blocks!!! ;-)


I love it Pat!. Men never will understand women, so don't even bother to try and get him to understand.


Pat - what a perfect fit for our Christmas Blocks for you. Can't wait to see it finished!


Excellent use of the panel and the blocks. Looking forward to see what you do with it to make it a top.


We work on Christmas fabric in March b/c we are working on St. Patty's fabric at Christmas! What he doesn't understand that?

Carrie P.

perfect together!

Jacquie Scuitto

Good timing?The Muse thinks so!


Quilters start planning Christmas in June,
Or at the latest july.
It takes time if you're going to make things,
Much more than if you merely buy.
So they search through the heat for the fabrics of Yule:
For snowmen and Santas and trees,
All red, green and gold with maybe some blue
Seeking designs suggesting a freeze.
Or they plan a present that's not Christmas themed,
That's meant for the whole year round:
A throw for the couch, an elegant vest
With some special fabric that's found.
There seems to be time, months and months to go
Then suddenly Thanksgiving is past.
And there's much yet to do-- oh grief! oh woe!
How can time go by so fast?
The time has come for the midnight oil
To be burned long evenings through
And if an item's not finished in time
Give instead an IOU!

Cindy Dickinson

That looks so good! Love it!

Lee Ann (Red Hen)

wow, I love it! gives me great inspiration on a panel that I have had for years!


They look perfect together! I'm surprised the shipping dept is questioning you! I would have thought he'd realized by now that you have to plan way ahead to have items ready for holidays or special occasions

Sarah in Houston

The shipping dept. should understand by now! The quilt is going to look great!

Linda P

They really sparkle together! Great plan!!

Mary Val

This is the perfect time to play with Christmas fabrics. Your quilt will be all done by the big day. I'm playing with Halloween fabrics today.


That panel is perfect to go with those blocks... how fabulous!
