I'm sure at one time or another
you've been part of a Secret Santa
This year I was a recipient of
a secret Santa gift from
the Temecula Quilt Co quilt shop.
I have never been to the shop in Temecula, California,
or never have met the shop owner, Sheryl Johnson,
but she shared a wonderful secret Santa mystery quilt design
with anyone who read her blog.
What an awesome gift!
Each week we received another clue.
A little more cutting and
some more sewing.
and plenty of Reds and Neutrals.
Lots of oldies, but goodies, for sure.
After 5-6 weeks
this sweet Christmas variation of
the classic Burgoyne Surrounded quilt
was sewn together.
42" x 54"
I machine quilted using a 28wt. Aurifil thread.
I love the texture it created.
snow blowing swirls.
Of course, there were lots of
things I should have been working on,
but it was exciting to get a mystery
Secret Santa gift each week.
This pattern has been on my
perpetual list for 20+ years.
Sheryl divided up the construction
in easy and doable segments.
I think 2019 will find me
FINALLY making this pattern
in the indigo and white fabrics I had planned
so long ago.
Thanks, Sheryl for sharing
your mystery with all of us.
It was a fabulous seasonal project.
Wishing you all a Happy Holiday season
and Merry Christmas. We'll catch up
after the New Year.
