Advent Calendar

I have made fabric Advent calendars for all our children, some from printed panels and one from scratch. Friends of our son and daughter in law saw theirs and requested one for themselves. They have been out in South Africa working with my daughter and son in law and will be home at Christmas. So I made the calendar below for their return. The night time photo's look a bit orange but you get the idea. The panels are a bit fiddly to turn in the edges and sew, I added wadding and backing and finished with hand quilting





This lovely fabric below is brushed cotton and bought from www.jbquiltingfabrics.co.uk. If you haven't visited their site, take a look they gave great service.
I will be using the fabric to make Christmas trousers for Gilby!
