Happy Winter Solstice

Such a special day, especially for my son, Matt, who lives in Fairbanks, Alaska. We visited him during Summer Solstice this year (the fishing pictures were taken at midnight!) - - - It's getting lighter every day now, Matt :-)

A perfect quick last minute quilty gift (I've made 5 of them over the years!) This teeny tiny paper-pieced Santa Quilt takes only an evening or 2 to make...(for me it was 1 evening to cut and piece and 1 evening to layer,quilt, and bind)

mini santa quilt

Pattern: "St. Nick" by MH Designs
Size: 10" X 12"
Method: Paper pieced, machine quilted in the ditch (I skimped on the quilting for speediness - now that I look at this photo, I may add some more to the background and borders....or not~

We've got 15" of new snow and it's still falling - a white Christmas is certain this year!

HAVE A HAPPY SOLSTICE AND A MERRY CHRISTMAS
