Christmas Fabric

Oh, wait, that title is awfully misleading. Its not Christmas Fabric- its FABRIC that the wonderful and fabulous Santa sent to my house for Christmas. Its Nicey Jane, of course. Its also my first little quilt top of 2010. Hooray for Santa!

{And let me say, Santa purchased the fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop- I'm so impressed. The FQS shipped nice square accurately measured fat quarters that weren't folded into tiny rectangles (which require tons more pressing.) They were just great. Accurate fat quarters make the whole following-the-pattern deal so much easier!}

And evidently, right after Santa left my house, he hopped into a telephone booth, ala Superman, and changed into a STORK costume to bring this little bundle to my brother and sister-in-law on the 27th.

So this little quilt isn't staying at my house. I'm sending it on to my mother-in-law so she can work her long arm quilting magic on it. She does feathers like no-body's business! And then its off to wrap up my adorable tiny niece.

Congrats guys!

Edited to add: The quilt top is made with only 7 fat quarters. I cut 9 squares measuring 6" each from the fat quarters. Then, I halved those 63 squares to yield all the triangles for the quilt.

Sweet little baby fingers and toes! Way to go Becky! Jen, I LOVE this pattern! Let me add it to the very long list of projects that I have going on! Dang it!

You could do this with charm packs, right? The zig-zags would just be alittle smaller? Because, you know, I have a couple of charm packs!

Yes you could use charm packs.
