Advent Calendar

Lots of bloggers were sharing the advent calendars they were making in November, so I thought I would share mine. 

I made this advent calendar probably 10+ years ago. It was one of my first wool felt projects.

The design is by Jo Ann Mullaly. I love how it is primitive with some fun embellishments.

The patches each represent a day and you turn them over daily.

I personalized it using our names on the stockings.

I like the variety of patches with Santas, snowmen, trees, angels, and stockings.

I had to shop around for quite awhile to find all the buttons.

I have been really busy with my quilting this weekend and plan on getting outside to take some pictures of my progress.

What are you up to?


  1. What a fun advent calendar! Sometimes the best loved projects are the ones we did many years ago... I love the primitive look of yours!

  2. I love your advent quilt. I have a question about how you embroidery. When you back the block w/ batting then embroidery it, then do you leave the batting & add another layer throughout the quilt? Or do you cut all the excess away then add or do you quilt each block as you go? Thanks!

  3. What a great advent calendar quilt. You'll treasure it!

  4. This is too cute! It's great that you were able to personalize, and add so many fun embellishments.

    Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
