Okay, it is only April and we are happy to announce the new Nancy Halvorsen ‘s “I Believe in Santa” has arrived from Benartex. We are so excited. It is absolutely adorable. This will the third year that we are having a very creative lady design a quilt using the panel in a new and unique way. Her name is Jeri F. She is quite the quilter. Here are the other two quilts that she has done using the yearly panel from Nancy. This is the Twelve Days of Christmas quilt. The quilting that Natalie C. of American Made Quilting (www.AmericanMadeQuilting.com) is spectacular. This picture doesn’t do it justice. In the large courtyard steps areas, there are quilted ornaments in various shades of thread. At the bottom, where there are packages, many people have personalized them with their grandchildren’s names. The have turned out so adorable. We still have kits and patterns available. I am afraid we do not have any panels that can be sold separately.
The first year, Jeri began this project she did a wonderful quilt called “Bethlehem Star” from the 2007 line. Here is a picture of this one. We do have one kit available for purchase and the pattern can be purchased separately. It was another show stopper and one of our customers did three; one for each of her grandchildren.
Again, the photo doesn’t do it justice. The website, which is broken and can’t be updated, has a better picture on it. www.jampatch.com
We will post the new one as soon as it is ready. The panel and fabric is marked in and ready for purchase.
“We believe that just one look at this charming new collection will make you believe in Santa too! There's something about Nancy's fabrics that make people remember the important things in life-family, laughter, dreams, hope. These are just a few of the heartwarming themes of her new Christmas panel. With warm colors and loads of rich textures and plaids of rich garnet red, amber, loden green or teal, “I Believe in Santa” is the perfect choice for all your holiday projects.” Benartex Website
Do stop by and see the wonderful collection.
