Throw Back Thursday Quilt

During a holiday season not too long ago, I found this charming Norman Rockwell panel featuring a mailman delivering his santa mail.  He is being chased by anxious kids and a dog.

This fabric panel is quite endearing to me, as my dad was a mailman.  He had many stories of delivering the mail in the snow and being chased by kids and dogs.

I embellished the panel by adding a couple of actual badges of his to the shoulder of the mailman on the panel to make it more authentic.  I also placed one of his USPS pins in the hat.  I love this Christmas wall hanging!
