On the back I put a label with a poem explaining how the count down begins with the 24 pockets and ends when you can jingle the two bells on Christmas day. We gave them to the kids during the Thanksgiving weekend. Here's Kaitlyn reading the poem to McKinley and Teegan.
The Mitchell family and their new quilt and the bag of candy to fill the pockets.
The Carter clan with Grandpa and Grandma with their new quilt.
And Jacob and Angie with theirs. Something to start their first Christmas off as a married couple and a tradition to carry on with their kids.
This is the finished quilt hanging at the White house. Yes, the President and First Lady are in on the count down to. Your never to old for Santa Claus, right!
Let the count down begin! Oh yeah, that was yesterday wasn't it? Oh, and by the way this will be a pattern for next Christmas. Speak now if you want some of this great fabric for your quilt. I have a little bit left if any of you are interested in a kit. I know it's a little early to be thinking about next year but it's to late for this one. Sorry, I just couldn't think about Christmas in June when all this fabric came out!
