A Merry Christmas To You Quilt-Along


Week # 3

Are you sewing my

“A Merry Christmas To You” quilt with us?

Have you joined “Sewing With Susan” Facebook group

so you can see what others are doing

& to also show your progress of this project?

This week we’ll again use the verse background fabric &

.05 Micron pen with color matching the 12 wt. cotton thread (or perle cotton thread).

This week trace “Joy to the World” found on the template sheet,

onto the fabric as shown in the diagram on page 1 of pattern.

Using the cotton thread,

stitch the verse with the same stitch that was used the previous 2 weeks.

It’s a great time of year to have hand work to do isn’t it?

No worries that you should be weeding the garden or

you’d rather by enjoying your deck!

A great evening project to do while watching TV

since around here it’s too cold to do anything else.

Just Keep Sewing…

Week # 2

Thank you for sewing my

“A Merry Christmas To You” quilt with us.

If you haven’t already,

please join my new “Sewing With Susan” Facebook group

so you can see what others are doing

& to also show your progress of this project.

This week we’ll again use the verse background fabric &

.05 Micron pen with color matching the 12 wt. cotton thread (or perle cotton thread).

Trace “Warm Wishes” found on the template sheet,

onto the fabric as shown in the diagram on page 1 of pattern.

Using the cotton thread,

stitch the verse with the same stitch that was used

to stitch “A Merry Christmas to you” last week.

As I mentioned last week I used a stem stitch.

Maggie mentioned in our Sewing With Susan FB group

that Mary Corbet has an excellent YouTube video on that stitch here.

Less work this week

so if you’re a bit behind from last week hopefully this will help you get caught up!

Just Keep Sewing…

Week # 1

I’m so glad that you’ve decided to sew my

“A Merry Christmas To You” quilt.

Whether you’re making the large quilt shown here in the beautiful Quiltmania setting,

or the 4 smaller quilts shown below from the back cover,

the instructions are the same.

The only difference will be after you have the 4 small quilt tops made.

You will either sew them into 1 quilt and add the borders or

stop & quilt them as 4 individual quilts.

Pretty clever, I know Lol!

Either way, you’ll want to join my new “Sewing With Susan” Facebook group where you can see

& show your progress of this project with other quilters.

So, get the verse background fabric &

.05 Micron pen with color matching the 12 wt. cotton thread (or perle cotton thread).

Trace “A Merry Christmas To You” from the template page

onto the fabric as shown in the diagram on page 1 of pattern.

Using the cotton thread, stitch the verse with the stitch of your choice.

I chose to use a stem stitch.

It’s a bit “beefier” than a back stitch & I like that!

You have all week to get this finished.

I find it to be a good task to do while watching TV.

It makes the time go by quickly.

Do you find this to be true?

I can’t believe that after writing this post I found this pic of me stitching in front of the TV!

I know that’s where I am because I see a bit of our living room carpet, Lol.

 I use a small spring tension hoop.

I like how easy it is to move around on my piece as I stitch.

See you back here next Wednesday!

Just Keep Sewing…
