Here it is, my red snowball challenge quilt, which I have named, "He Knows When You Are Sleeping". It's Quilt # 52 and finished at 60" X 72".
I'm am so happy with this quilt. I enjoyed swapping the creams, making the blocks, and looking at those smiling Santa faces everyday for 10 days.

At first I thought about going with a black inner border, and putting a block in the corners to separate the Santas.
I quickly dropped the black in favor of red. But I didn't like how this block looked in the corner.
So I made a different block, but I didn't like it either.
In the end, I decided I wanted uninterrupted Santas surrounding the snowball blocks. I matched the corners up as well as I could. I think once it's quilted it will be hard to pick out where the Santas meet.
I plan to use this material, cut on the bias, for the binding. It's a companion fabric to the Santa fabric.
I'm going with cream Moda flannel for the back.
Thanks again to Allyson and Nicole for hosting the challenge, thanks to my cream swapmates, and good luck to all who are joining this challenge. I look forward to seeing your quilts.
The quilt looks so much better in person, these poor pictures do not do it justice.
