Hi Quilting Friends,
Santa gets pretty busy at this time of the year. He has to supervise the elves and make sure that they’re building plenty of the popular new toys. He has to coordinate the training schedule for the reindeer, in case they got lazy and out of shape during the off-season. He has to make a list, and then check it twice. A jolly old Elf’s work is never done! That’s why Santa was SO excited to get some extra assistants this year, just in time for his Christmas preparations.
So get ready to meet “Santa’s Little Helpers”, from our 2016 Christmas wall hanging quilt pattern:
Ed the elephant decided to try on Santa’s spare suit, just in case he needs to fill in at the photo booth in the mall during Santa’s lunch break. It looks like “Santa” should have cut back just a bit on the milk and cookies!
When it was time to decorate the Christmas tree, none of the other elves were quite tall enough to reach the top and hang the lights. Gerard the giraffe generously tried to help, but ended up making a mess of the lights. Oh dear! Better find the ladder instead.
Roxy the raccoon is really quite smart! Some might even call her “gifted”. She’s all ready to help Santa hand out gifts at the Christmas party. Can you guess what’s inside this pretty gift-wrapped present? Roxy would be happy if it is a fish!
Barry the bear gives fabulous hugs, and he knows exactly how to fill a Christmas stocking to Santa’s specifications. Take a look at the goodies tucked inside, all ready for a good little boy or girl to enjoy on Christmas morning.
Lulu the horse has finished decorating the tree, and she hung the mistletoe too! Now she’s hoping that the cute colt on the other side of the room will notice where she’s standing, waiting for him. Lulu is hoping for her very first Christmas kiss!
Now aren’t you glad to know that Santa will have LOTS of extra help this year? We had so much fun creating these whimsical animal applique blocks to make our Christmas wall quilt!
