Make sure to visit each and every blogger not only for inspiration to get a head start on your holiday sewing, but also to help you acquire some new holiday fabrics, as we'll be giving away fabrics and gift certificates throughout the festivities. I hope you're as excited about this one as I am!


  1. How fun! I'm doing Halloween in June right now for the same reason. No time to sew for Halloween in October.

  2. I'll definitely be following along!

  3. Woo hoo! I keep saying I'm going to make my mother-in-law stockings for Christmas. This might be the motivation I need!

  4. Yippee! Thanks for putting this together!

  5. WooHoo! Thanks for organizing this! I need all the motivation I can get!

  6. I'm excited to see the projects! Thanks!!

  7. Heck, with three kids' birthdays in the first week of November, if I'm not ready by Halloween I'm in trouble. I'll definitely be following along.

  8. Do I dare? Yeah, I think so!!

  9. Yay! So happy to participate!

  10. I am in, love sewing for Christmas.

  11. Looks good! We'll be settled in our new place by then and I'm always up to get my holiday sewing started early.

  12. You have convinced me that this little ruler can take a quilt anywhere! Enter me to win a ruler. Thanks!


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?
