Santa Baby

It's Day 6 of our "12 days of Christmas trees" and we're having a blast.  Have you ever heard the crazy song called Santa Baby? The delightful "Santa Baby" quilt shown below was inspired by a Buggy Barn original pattern.  [ Note added 8/30/18:  The Buggy Barn's website is gone, but the pattern may still be available; try Barn Chick Quilts.]  Molly Shannon selected the fabrics and pieced this 40" x 40" quilt for a class she taught at The Quilt Works Inc.

The quilt blocks are half tree, half Santa.  In fact, Santa seems to be hiding behind the trees!  Perhaps he is trying to evade the owner of the house, and her extravagant wish list :

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I've been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby,  a '54 convertible too
Light blue

(Honestly, check out this '54 light blue convertible.... we'd go for the car over the sable. Any day.)

  1. "Santa Baby" was my girls' favorite Christmas song when they were younger - probably because it is so different from most of them :)

  2. I just saw this at a shop a couple of weeks ago, and have kicked myself for not buying the pattern then. It is just too darn cute!!!
