The Christmas Carol Row Along - Quilt Reveal Day - Santa Land and Giveaway

Sadly, the Christmas Carol Row-Along is coming to a close.



Today is 
QUILT SHOW  DAY
where we show off the projects we made with all these fun rows.
There were over 40 rows!

This was the row I introduced in the beginning of the Row Along
which became a 9" x 30" table runner.


Next I used my row to make three 9 1/2" x 9 1/2" blocks by using background fabric and placing the applique pieces accordingly.

For the appliques, I used my favorite fabric iron on adhesive,
by



I needed one more block for my quilt layout, 
so I designed another Santa to go with the others.
The Cowboy Santa block is also 9 1/2" x 9 1/2".


The original plan was to make a quilt with these 9 1/2"  blocks in the middle
and 4 other rows around them,


but
I had all of these super cute fabrics from




(I loved these fabrics so much for my row, I ordered even more to make this quilt).

Here is the layout I used with finished block measurements.
The quilt is 60" x 60" finished.


The design works perfect for 4 rows,
a huge block in the center, 
and 
a 9" border with corner blocks (the santa blocks from above).

To achieve the big center block, I enlarged the row pieces from the
by 200% 
and 
chose different pieces from each santa to make the block on an 18" background.


Will the Real Santa Please Stand Up? big quilt block.


Then I chose 4 rows with a Santa theme for the quilt.

Thank you to the following designers for these fun quilt rows:
