A Merry Christmas To You Quilt-Along


Week # 22

It’s the final week &

your quilt is almost finished!

Refer to the instructions on page 8 to

“Assemble Large Quilt”

make the “Inner border”

using the half-square triangles that you made last week,

make the “Middle Sawtooth Border”

& finally make the “Outer Border”

then, sit back and admire your awesome success.

Thanks for sewing this quilt with me!!!

It means so much to me that your buy my patterns and want to sew along with me too!

Week # 21

Now that the quilt sections are all assembled,

if you’re making the 4 small quilts,

layer them with backing & batting then quilt as desired.

Bind the quilts & apply labels; you’re done!

If you’re making the 1 large quilt,

refer to page 8 to make 154 half-square triangles.

I know that seems like a BIG number,

but that’s just 22 hst’s for each of the 7 days this week!

I’m pretty sure I made them all in 1 day, plus assembled the rest of the quilt too.

(insert cracking whip sound here)

Remember, you’re going to love this quilt when it’s

quilted and hanging on your wall every Christmas!!!

Looking back at the pics I can’t believe that

not only did I make this very detailed quilt,

but I made it again so I could have the

4 individual quilts photographed for the pattern cover too!!!

That must have been temporary insanity

that came over me while I mindlessly pieced the little Dresden plates.

“This ain’t so bad”, the crazy lady said!

Week # 17

Yay!

It’s time for assembly!

& the numbers tell you what order to sew those sections to each other to complete Quilt #1.

I’m curious who plans to make 4 individual quilts,

Week # 16

Not much more to make for this pretty Christmas quilt.

We’ll finish the applique this week.

This week is “Stockings” week.

Refer again to page 6 to make the 2 stocking blocks.

Whatever applique technique you used for the mittens

you’ll want to use this week too.

I’m curious if anyone quilting along with us

is intimidated with applique?

If so, did you push yourself to do it anyway?

I hope that the little bits of different techniques in this quilt

have been fun & hopefully you’ve learned something too.

Nothing I do is hard.

It may be time consuming, but not hard!

I love to see your progress.
