A Bigger Advent This Year

I’ve been making quilted advent calendars for several years now – you can see some of them available for sale in the Whimzie Quiltz Etsy store. The standard version is approximately 10 ½” x 21 ½”, with pockets that hold a single piece of hard candy or Hershey’s Kiss.

Recently, I had a request for a larger version. It would be for a family with two kids and, naturally, they wanted a calendar that would hold two pieces of candy.

I may not love math, but I do love custom orders, so I figured out new dimensions with my handy quilting calculator.  And the result is this awesome 15 ½” x 32″ advent calendar… bigger is always better when it comes to Christmas 😀

Counting Down to Grinch-mas

grinchcountdownAs of today, there are 80 days left until Grinch-mas 2017! Yes, I’m counting them down… and I can’t wait to get to use my just finished “Merry Grinch-mas” quilted advent calendar.

It’s the standard design I created years ago, though the first quilted calendar I’ve done with a Grinch / Who-ville theme (check out others in my Whimzie Quiltz Etsy shop.) Each little pocket holds a single peppermint or Hershey’s kiss, so you can enjoy one per day – every day – until the BIG day!

This is the last calendar that my fabulous friend Shirley helped with. I’ve since purchased my own embroidery machine, and it’s a lot of fun, but I miss working with her terribly!
