March - Christmas Quilt Along

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the March Christmas Quilt Along. Today I'll be working on a couple of projects for Christmas. I tend to get bored easily so I have to have more than one project going at a time.

During the last Quilt Along, I made this block......

....and this block.

Now it is time to add some more blocks to the mix.

Of course plaids need to be in the center for most of these blocks!  There are 53 pieces of fabric in each block which makes for slow going.

I've been playing around with a setting design and I think I've settled on this one for a real country look and feel.  Now this one is going to be fun to quilt!  I may have to accelerate my block making so I can get this finished sooner rather than later. 

I'm try to use the fabric in my stash and all of this is from the fabric cupboard.  I refuse to buy another piece of fabric for this quilt....even though I would like to.....I'm going to use what I have on hand!

Check back later for Christmas project #2.

As always,



  1. That pattern is absolutely beautiful.

  2. I love these blocks!! This will such a lovely quilt!

  3. This quilt is going to be a Christmas Heirloom!! Just stunning!

  4. I like that blackboard. Looks old fashioned.

    How many stars do you plan on making for your quilt?

  5. You have such a nice stash of fabric. The blocks look great. 53 pieces per block is alot.
    They look like 12" blocks. Another stunning quilt is in the making

  6. That's such a great idea to us only your stash! I wish I could use up lots of my stash, it's taking over my sewing room I try so hard to keep it organized ..... What an endless job that is! I even purchased yet two more pattern yesterday, ideas using up stash!
    Nice pattern Lynn!

  7. That quilt is a delight, Lynn - I love it! What a wonderful colour combo.
