Christmas Quilt

My daughter thought she wanted to quilt for about two months, or maybe that was two weeks, or maybe two seconds.  She purchased a number of beautiful fabrics in Christmas colors and cut out a few four inch squares.  Then she decided she really wasn't into quilting and would stick to her scrapbooking and card designing.  She is really a pro at both of those.  Naturally she brought all of her fabrics over to me and asked if I could make a quilt from them.  They sat around for at least a year and then I found this block.  Love, love this block and so much fun to make.  These are the blocks I have to date.  I keep going to my stash pulling more fabrics out and the blocks just get more interesting.  Have no idea how many block I will end up making but I would like to have at least thirty and maybe more.


  1. Nice blocks, Dot! Thanks for visiting my blog too.

  2. It is going to be pretty! Love the block pattern, it looks so different with different fabrics. Very cool!

  3. The blocks look pretty Dot. I will be interested to see how you quilt it.

    I still haven't decided how to quilt the Christmas blocks I won at Cold Sassy a few years ago. Even after you girls basted it for me and I tried the diagonal lines. They just don't work for me...........too many seams to sew over.

    I am sure yours will be gorgeous as always.


  4. Good job on the blocks, Dot. They look a bit complicated, but I'm betting you'll say they aren't. Did you realize that you're already out the shoot with 1/3 of the blocks? Surely you can make a few more? then you'll be half way and unable to slow down. I love the colors and the Christmas star look and feel.
