Christmas in July: Happy Quilting

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend :)

The second week of Christmas in July festivities kick off today. Have you met Melissa? She's the blogger behind the aptly titled Happy Quilting blog and a momma to five kids, and somehow she still finds time to sew! Today, she's sharing a fabulous tutorial for holiday strip quilt called Ribbons with us, full of bright holiday colors, not to mention quick and easy to put together!


Melissa's also hosting a super fun Tetris quilt-along right now that I'm having a hard time resisting at the moment. Such a fun idea! She also hosts a weekly link-up called T.N.T. Thursdays, encouraging all of us to Try New Things every week in our crafting. 



Today, along with her great tutorial, Melissa giving away a gift certificate to I Don't Do Dishes, so pop on over to check out her quilt and enter for a chance to win! Have a great 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?
