Have a Jolly Little Christmas




Well,  I can hear you think: "Christmas is just over!" But... it is never too early to start for next year, or better, for this year! I am always late in starting and then I have to rush, get nervous, etc.etc. to finish in time. This time I will be perfectly alright! To help me stick to my goal I am following the Have a Jolly Little Christmas Challenge, QAL from Sew Fresh Quilts. https://sewfreshquilts.blogspot.com/p/have-jolly-little-christmas.html


I made the first block with the two Christmas stockings. I liked it so much that I immediately made another block to make a cushion . The pattern for the whole quilt is fantastic!  


I love this modern fresh look! Nice for on the couch and I am sure my grandson will love it too! There is also a version for a double bed, but I'll probably stick with this one!

You are right! It is never too early to start working on a Christmas project if you wish to be ready by December!
This is a lovely pattern you started working on, Ada!

Its certainly a good idea to start early. And by the time its Christmas you almost forgot what beautiful things you made at the beginning of this year!

Wat een leuk. Je kunt er niet vroeg genoeg aan beginnen voor je het weet is het weer december.

I love the polka dot fabric and the flowery one. I plan to make the quilt myself but have not got round to starting it yet..

Wat een leuk patroon, en je blokjes zien er zo fris uit. Leuk om daar dit jaar mee bezig te zijn.

Άντα Καλημέρα.
Το ξαναείδα κι αποφάσισα να ασχοληθώ κι εγώ.
Ελπίζω μέσα στην εβδομάδα να κάνω τα δύο πρώτα.
