Advent Calendar Quilt Pattern - PAPER
This fun seasonal quilt has present shaped pockets to hold your tree ornaments and other advent treasures!
I decided to make this quilt one year while we were living away from home during Christmas and we didn't have a tree! It has since become a favorite tradition for our family--the kids love counting down the days until Christmas by removing the ornaments* from the pockets and hanging them on the tree!
*Any ornaments can be used. I used decorative gift tags available at Costco, Sam's Club, etc. They are lightweight, sturdy and inexpensive and fit perfectly in the pockets.
