Bibelet...aka..Santa's closet

This month's schnibbles took a crazy turn.  The selection this month was Bibelet.  I looked at this pattern for several days waiting for any inspiration to start.  What fabrics should I use? How would I use the finished quilt?   I finally decided to use red and white fabrics.  You can't go wrong with a red and white quilt.  Here is where the mind starts to wander....From the first time I saw the pattern this month, it looked like a kimono or mu-mu.  I just couldn't get this out of my head.  Could have gone the route of "T" for Terry, but this just didn't look like him.  As I starting pulling red fabrics, I saw red mu-mus.  Lots of them.  So who wears lots of red?  Santa of course!  Then I starting picking out fabric suitable for any fashion savvy Santa.  In the back of my mind, I remember a quilt hanger I bought at a junk sale  waiting for a small Christmas wall hanging. Inspiration found!

Here's a close up!  Santa's  now ready for any occasion

Make sure you check out the other Bibelets at the parade tomorrow at Sherri's or Sinta's blog.



  1. How fun to see NC State! My son graduates from there in May. Sweet idea!,

  2. LOL I think you know I love how quilts come about, and the stories behind them. I love how your quilt came about - and now that you mention it, the Ts do look like kimonos!

    I love your little Santa Mu-Mu quilt. I bet Mrs. Claus wears them when the Mr. is out in the workshop. :)

  3. What a fun idea :-) I do like the NC State T even though I went to UNC!
