Advent Calendar SYTYC Audition Project

So now that the voting is closed I am able to post my audition project I submitted for the blog contest So You Think You're Crafty! I was in the top 10 so I passed my audition!! The weekly challenges begin at the end of the month. Thanks to everyone who voted for me.

I have to tell you about the fabric geek out I had earlier in the week. I posted the SYTYC logo to my flickr account. I SWEAR that I left no hints about which project was mine and Laurie Wisbrun who designed the amazing Santa Donkey and Holiday Rain Boots fabric commented that, "I voted. And I'm pretty sure I could tell which one was yours :) So cute!!" I was pretty darn excited. I mean how cool is that? I love her fabrics and read her blog often!

Anyway here is the exact post from the SYTYC blog:

Christmas is right around the corner! I decided to make my niece an advent calendar. She is finally old enough to be able to understand counting down the days til Christmas, and hopefully old enough to be able to understand she can only have one small treat a day until Christmas. Luckily I don't have to be the person to re-explain this on a daily basis.

This calendar starts on the bottom at #24 and works backwards.

This is an original pattern. The numbers are machine appliqued and the whole piece is machine quilted.

There is one pocket on the bottom with a card to my niece that reads "Naughty or Nice?". The card is for Christmas morning and will explain that if she has been "nice" she can trade it into her aunt for a big present!
