Christmas is almost here, and all we are doing now is 'waiting for Santa'... (we wish !) In any case, we've been waiting until this morning to show Lynette Anderson's delightful quilt by the same name.
Waiting for Santa, 56 x 66 , by Lynette Anderson
This quilt is filled with everything we associate with Christmas, including angels, reindeer, trees, and Santa himself. We love the foundation-pieced stars, and the strings of heart-shaped lights, which are carried aloft by doves. Did you notice the little face in the window of the house? That's one of Lynette's sons peering out 'waiting for Santa' to come and visit him!
