I've added a counter on the right hand side of the blog to help remind you. Most of you are like "yeah, but no." I don't want to think about it.
I read this and knew right away I wanted to join in on the fun, but I work every Saturday. I wrote Sue to see if they ever did anything on a Sunday and they have not. She said I could do it on Sunday if I wanted in lieu of Saturday, but I thought that would be no fun. So I wrote Sue back with a few ideas in hope that I could convince her to also do a Sunday, but she told me I had such great idea that I could just run with it myself. I give you.....
To help you get in the mood Qubee Quilts has teamed up with Cathi & Sue and we're going to make one big weekend event of this. Our Quilt Along will be the 2nd weekend in July, the 9th &10th.
One the 9th you jump on over to Cathi & Sue and see what fun things they have planed for you. Then on the 10th you jump back over to Qubee Quilts.
Now, me being me, I can't let all my peeps just run amok. I've got to be in control you know. :-)
I have designed a quilt for my Sunday quilt along. I even have giveaways planned for the whole day. Sure to be lots of fun. For this Quilt Along we're going to make the following quilt.
I'm using Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater for Moda.
This quilt is SUPER easy to make and only 32" big and you can get it done in one day or less. I'll be walking you though every step of the way, from making the circles to quilting and finally, the binding. I'll even share a few tricks along the way.
If you're going to play along and make the Christmas quickie then you will need the following:
- One Moda charm pack - 16, 5" squares
- 1/2 yard of cream dots, back, red & green fabrics
- 1/2 black binding (One yard total if doing the blocks & binding the same color)
- 1 yard backing.
- 35" x 35" batting
I will give you more details as they come in, but for my friends around the world where it might take longer to get fabric, I wanted to get you some basic info.
Don't forget we are going to have giveaways. A few of our sponsors are:
Until next time,
