Christmas Quilt Along - Post #2

Hello Everyone,

It has been a frustrating day trying to post to Blogger and also trying to make comments on other sites. Blogger just isn't cooperating at all!  So here goes for post #2 of the day. After I finished the two blocks for the Scatty Christmas Star,  I pulled out a wonderful batch of fat quarters to make some blocks for my new design called Country Charm

It is red and green, yet I feel I can keep it on display in my red kitchen for most of the year.  Again, all of my required elements of polka dots, stripes and a plaid.

I started sewing some of the blocks together.  I decided to keep this to only 20 blocks.  I had a fantasy of making this into a queen-sized quilt, but I would like to finish it in this lifetime!

Back to making more sashings and nine-patch posts and maybe I can get a couple more rows together.  I would much, MUCH rather make the blocks than stitch the quilt together.  Of course my border fabric is sitting at home too!  Oh well, the afternoon is winding down and I probably won't get to that point anyway.

As always,



  1. Good star blocks. I like the yellowish greens that you used.

  2. Lynn I went to Jo's club yesterday it's hard to pay attention to the lessons as I'm sitting there admiring all YOUR lovely quilts. Such a lovely Lovely distraction! =0)
