Here's Santa!

 Finally, the Big Guy is done.  It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be...just had to  take out a couple of pieces and redo....numbering for steam a seam or wonder under is different that numbering for back basting applique.  Once I took a good look at the order I got it all figured out.  Still have some embroidery to do but that won't take long.  I also want to rouge up Santa's cheeks and maybe a little sculpting around the face for more definition.  Anyway, now I have to resize all the squares and fit them together , add an inside border and then applique the outside border of holly leaves and stars.  I will probably take my time doing that since I will not get this one quilted for some time.  I have four waiting to be hand quilted and one in the frame just screaming out to be finished.

On a lighter note...the face of the doll on Santa's arm is to be embroidered...good thing since now she looks like a demented imp.....lol!

Hi, Your Santa is beautiful and I think you did an awesome job. Can't wait to see it all finished. You amaze me with everything you accomplish. I'm thinking there must be something wrong with me. I do enjoy your blog and will try to remember to comment more.
