Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

This Santa wall hanging is my most favorite quilted wall hanging I've ever made. Out of the Debbie Mumm book, this was the one I really wanted to make, the reason why I bought this book. When I sat down and made it in a few nights, I was so pleased. I had taken extra care to use all different green, red, and beige fabrics, as well as the buttons on the ends of his hats. Again, this was a really easy piece. Again I worked in the country color scheme. What are your favourite color schemes? Normally I like bright splashy colors, so this was a real change for me. I have a confession though, in my flat, my living room is beige. Before I had a flat, I swore I would never decorate in the dreaded plain beige, but after visiting so many other flats I had seen with bright walls and being told I could probably negotiate a couple thousand off the price because of the color scheme, I decided when I had my own flat to stick with beige. I actually like to think of mine as creamy oatmeal that shows off the white wood doors, fireplace, ceiling rose, and plaster work around the edge of the ceiling.

So are you a beige type of person or is your house an array of mismatched colors?

Love the wall hanging Michelle, I am not a beige person, I love earthy tones...brown, greens, you get the picture, and as my children will probably have the bother off selling this house when their Dad and I are gone....I use any colour I want.....LOL...Hugs Avril xxx the good thing about beige is with your talent at creating things...you have a blank canvas to hang your goodies....Hugs Avril xxxx

This is a fantastic wall hanging...
These types of quilts are on my list 'to do' one day. The interior of our house has a slight pink tone to it....a mistake in when we were picking colours. I am so itching to paint it a beige or another off white colour.
