How about another quilt-along?


When I celebrated my first blogiversary last weekend, I saw that a lot of you are interested in another quilt-along, and well, I happen to be getting involved in another one!

Have you ever wanted to make a Christmas quilt?  I'm really happy to tell you that starting at the end of this month, Sara of Sew Sweetness is hosting a 12 Days of Christmas Sampler Quilt Along, with 12 different bloggers each contributing a 12.5" block tutorial, spread over six weeks, including yours truly.

The quilt top will require 12 fat quarters, or 1 layer cake.  You're more than welcome to also use various scraps, including non-holiday fabrics in festive holiday colors!  In addition to that, you will need approximately 1.5" yds of a neutral solid of your choosing for the sashing.  Here's the schedule for the quilt-along, and I do hope you'll join in!

Oct 25 - Julianna @ Projektownia Jednoiglec
Oct 27 - Sara @ Sew Sweetness
Nov 1 - Kaelin @ The Plaid Scottie
Nov 3 - Jennie @ Clover and Violet
Nov 8 - Elizabeth @ Don't Call Me Betsy
Nov 10 - Riel @ The Q and the U
Nov 15 - Jennifer @ Ellison Lane Quilts
Nov 17 - Lindsay @ Lindsay Sews
Nov 22 - Jessica @ SewCraftyJess
Nov 23 - Sarah @ Fairy Face Designs
Nov 29 - Heather & Megan @ Quilt Story

There is also a '12 Days of Christmas' Sampler Quilt Along Flickr Group for you to join in! We'll be sharing our fabric choices, completed blocks, and questions along the way! Hope to see you around for the quilt along!!

  4. This sounds great! I didn't get into all the sampler fun this summer, but I really want to try this as making a Christmas quilt has been on my list forever! Hoping I can get some other things finished before this gets started!

  10. I follow seven of those twelve blogs - and I'm so tempted! But will my piecing skills be accurate enough? I've already had to pull out of two other block "swaps" because of a lack of accuracy!

Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)

Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
