Happy Hollow Yo-Yo Santa

This is one of my favorite holiday projects ever. I had so much fun making this cute Santa wall hanging by Happy Hollow designs. I think next year I will definitely be making the matching tree skirt. This pattern works up quick too. I spent one night in front of the TV making the yo-yos and I put it all together in an hour the next day.

California Midstate Fair 2008 Quilt Challenge

"Barn Dance Tonight"

I had such a fun time on this project. It was inspired by a photo of a quilt named "20th and Freya - A Five-Year-Old's View of Her Mother" from the book Quilted Memories by Mary Lou Weidman. This year, I won two fair awards - "Best Use of Color" and "Best Interpretation of Theme".
