Santa's Trip

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.


  1. Very nice job Jeanne. I made 3 of these last Christmas for my girls, they don't take very long to do.

  2. Well done, Jeanne! Nothing like being organised for Christmas.

  3. I bought this pattern last year with the hope oif getting it made for Christmas this year... Jeanne's lovely rendition has reminded me to start thinking about it!!

  4. Great work Jeanne Kaye! (Karen - Jeanne Kaye is a dynamo- we call her the "Energizer Bunny" in our Guild. She puts the rest of us to shame with her prolific piles of quilts at every meeting!) Doesn't surprise me at all that she is already working on Christmas quilts!
