Once Upon A Christmas Night



Special to every child at Christmas time is an old-fashioned Advent Calendar with colorful detail, glitter, glitz, and the anticipation of opening a door each day until the big holiday - Christmas! One of my goals was to create such a calendar in fabric and thread and be able to share German Christmas traditions from long ago with children big and small in my adopted country, the United States of America. I have employed hand, needle-turn applique and hand embroidery to create this quilt with its 24 doors and button closings.
