Jolly Old St. Nicholas


Jolly Old St. Nicholas
Made and Quilted by Elizabeth Eastmond

While the basic pattern (including that very cute Santa) came from Thimblecreek Quilts, the success of this quilt would have not have been possible without the help of my beemates in the Mid-Century Modern Quilt Bee.  All the blocks came in on time and were within 1/8" measurement of each other.  For those of you in other bees, you know how extraordinary that is.


I included everyone's names on my label.  


The boring old back, but I included it to show another fine feature of our bee: signature blocks.  We all make and sign a signature block to be included with our quilt blocks.  I love looking at them all and appreciate their contributions.

  4. I'm so glad you posted this. It is SUPER cute. Loved having a part of it. I think the 1/8" speaks to the skills of everyone in this special group.
