QJ - Night Before Christmas


Preprinted Book Panel
Machine Pieced
Machine Quilted
Baby Quilt
Completed - December 1997

Made for Grandson #1 -

I took a preprinted panel that was intended for a child's fabric book -
And cut apart the pages -

I then set the pages as blocks with sashing and borders -

The backing fabric was an all-over Santa Clause print -

Entered in a local quilt show - January 1999

QJ - 1997


  1. cute! I have a set of embroidery designs for the "Night before Christmas" but the stitch count is huge and I've really put off doing them.... Maybe I should start this year and in a few years, they'll be done :-)

    1. Katie - that sounds like a great entry for our little "Race" - LTRTCWSA - Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas with Squirrels Allowed - ;)) And like they say - the sooner you start - the sooner you finish - ;))

  2. I think that is a better idea than making the thing into a book that will only be used a few years.

    1. Thanks, Julie - I thought so too - and I was hoping that it would last long enough for him to be able to read it all by himself - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
