12 Days of Christmas, Day 8!

Hi Quilting Friends!

Welcome to Day 8! I hope that you’re having fun with our “12 Days of Christmas” series.

Today’s project features this cute little raccoon, another contestant in the “Ugly Sweater Contest”. Raccoon’s sweater has a great big snowman on the front!

I decided to use the raccoon applique block to make a second placemat to pair with my colorful Christmas owl placemat. Since they are a pair, I used the same fabrics that were used to make the owl place mat, and then finished it in the same way.

Here’s a picture of the finished raccoon placemat and the matching owl place mat:

  1. With just me and my dad, I don’t decorate. He’s using a walker or wheelchair, with O2, so it makes it difficult for him to get around if anything gets changed.


  2. I decorate with a tree and dress up my mantle. There is a smaller tree in my kitchen. I also like to use my Christmas table runners and sometimes buy a poinsettia!


  3. My husband & I use my quilted table runner/cloths, some kitchen hand towels/trivets, our stockings, tree & some old fence post snowmen we made years ago. Used to decorate lots when our kids were at home, not so much anymore.
