Deana's 6&6: Santa's are cut out!

January's 6 and 6 is a new start and I started "Up on the Housetop".  

I got all of the reindeer blocks done and cut out the Santa blocks.
I hope to have the quilt quilted and bound by the end of 1st quarter this year.

Yay!  I took the time to cut out the Santas two days ago.  With these buggy barn style patterns you stack and slash and then rearrange the fabrics.  I wanted to see all of these before sewing them up in case I want to replace a few fabrics in a few places.  I am going to do that.

Here are a couple of unofficial picks.  The last Santa will have the beard replaced with something else.  The one with the directional print will need some tweaking too.  I may cut each piece specific to align the stripes better.  I just used my stash for these, so I didn't have very many reds that went together.

These Santas will be in the same quilt with my reindeer blocks.
