I am always envious of people so organized that they stitch their Christmas quilts in advance...and not two days before the holidays! This Santa's Trip Around The World comes in from Jeanne Speight of Fredericton (formerly from Oxford, for the locals reading who may know Jeanne).
After Santa decided he would straighten up and fly the right way and not counter-clockwise (huh hmm...), Jeanne had no problems with her wallhanging. She writes: "Thanks for a terrific pattern! Your method of strip piecing the 'Around the World' background was so easy -- brilliant!
It turned out great, Jeanne. The gold prints really add vibrancy to the traditional red and green. Thanks so much for sharing your talent. The pattern for Santa's Trip Around The World is available here on my website if anyone would like to give it a go.
