A Christmas quilt

I found my missing pantos! I forgot that I had purchased the Tannenbaum panto to quilt on this quilt.

These Santas are so cute! They remind me of decorations at my grandparents house when I was growing up.

I pieced this top two years ago, I believe. I figured that I had to hurry up and finish a UFO since I am moving up the list on my UFO Yahoo group. I already have the binding done and I just have to pull it out and sew it on.

This makes the 5th quilt to need binding in the last couple of weeks. I'm hoping to get the strips cut and the binding made sometime this week. It will be nice to get the bindings put onto all the quilts by the end of the long weekend!

I love those cute Santas too. My thoughts exactly.

Binding is about my favorite part, because that is when "finished" really means FINISHED.

Love the Panto -that would be so cool on a table runner!!!

Binding under a quilt on what looks to be a cooler weekend! Heaven! (until you fall asleep and stick yourself with the needle!)

GO, I love that Santa fabric. I love all the old stuff. What line is it? The panto trees are great. What a cool idea. Don't wear yourself out too bad. Those granddogs need attention, too.
Love, Mam

Great job! That panto is perfect. The Santas remind me of my grandparent's decorations too!
