Advent mystery solved.....


The mystery of my advent quilt is revealed today...Christmas Day. Here are the 25 little quilt blocks on the reverse sides. I really enjoyed stitching them all. You can see the other side on this previous post.

There are references to the patterns my quilt group members turned in along with some things dear to my husband and I. A few examples are in the photo below but enlarge the first photo to see all the blocks. The "Joyeux Noel" as my way of saying thank you to the various French sites where I found some designs, a candle in a lantern on the 13th for Santa Lucia as Jos and I lived in Sweden when we were first married, the nativity for the 25th, a pretzel which reminds of the German Weihnachtsmarkts which we love so much and my kitty Dagi and Miss Pickles the Elf. These are just a few of the motiefs I used. 


Wishing you a very Merry Christmas wherever you are celebrating and may 2015 bring you happiness and many creative moments!

  3. It is beautifull! and the project was so much fun to do together, it sure is fun to turn the tiny quilts and remember who turned in that specific pattern.
    This was surely a bonding project, very special. Thank you
