November 5th Quilt Celebrations!

Jessie and I each shared a project on the 5th of November.  I'm post dating this because the advent calendar was a gift, and I didn't want to risk spoiling the surprise!

I made this for my daughter-in-law and grandchildren
for Christmas 2013.  Something new for them.
It was a lot of fun to make, challenges and all!
It's a Nancy Halvorsen panel with the figures
fused to felt and then stitched.  I put the hanging
floss on with buttons on the back of each figure,
then attached them to the border and middle
by using a button-type hanger for each.

This one shows the figures in their proper places
after Advent is finished.

And this is of my grandkiddos with it on Day 2.

Jessie made this crazy patch pillow for
my husband and me for our 35th anniversary.
It matches the quilt top she made for us for our 25th!
Such fun and such treasures.

Happy Quilting!!
