Santa Belt

To quote two of my fellow hosts who summed up this block perfectly:

Laura has created “with just a few cuts to create an undeniable image of Santa.” ~Jennifer Fulton

“Amazing that a few squares and rectangles are immediately recognizable as Santa’s belt.”
~Sandy Maxfield

The pattern is easy to complete with clear and straightforward instructions. As always, feel free to ask me any questions you may have when you make yours.

He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly. ~by Clement Clarke Moore
