@Iminei this is just fabulous. Fabulous! May I share it with some of my quilting friends? Maybe entice them to come join us here in The Darkside?

I need to try and make this.

Mmm, that might be a bit of a challenge to fit it in with the rest of the BOMs in my BOM quilt. Better get my thinking hat on. Or perhaps I could make a larger version and it could be my thinking hat  ;)

if you want it to become a block block .. Which I hadnt even considered ...

Continue the log cabin to 12 1/2" (you may want to cut the centre square at 3 1/"2, but keep the strip sizes at 1")

Add hat material to the same size as the block (hopefully somewhere around the 13" mark)

Continue as directed and after cutting on the diagonal into two and pressing you will have two Santas ... both larger ... one of which could be used as a flat block within a quilt.

And you can see who spots it as a Santa!

Oh I like that and may just have to make 3 - one for each of the grandkids, however I still have to make the 'scrubbs' for pressies for two of them and I still haven't done November BOM yet.
Hi Sakar nice to see you.

When do we need to have our BOMs complete in order to get a badge?
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Been speeding ahead this morning! With a welcome break when a friend called round unexpectedly. Great tales of her trip to Australia so when sewing Santa I was thinking of snorkerling along coral reefs.

No eyes as I think I'd spoil them.

They are Spectacular BW, and lil gemstone eyes would set them off nicely (no way to spoil those)

Hie thee hence to the BOM HOF and join Fajita for a glass of the Gluhwein that I've had shipped from Austria!

Can you tell I’ve managed to regain access to my sewing machine?
I’ve decided to scale things down a bit for this block and made it tree decoration size (cat for scale).

But how do we know that you haven't got a giant cat?   ;)

Seriously, that's lovely.   :D

 Fourth and last of these done now.
I need to tidy the sewing room now. You wouldn't believe the mess.
