Holiday Quilts, Quilt Projects

In case you don’t have enough to do this month…

Hi friends!

So, you know the saying, if you want something done, ask a busy person? Well, I have decided that I should be super busy this month! In addition to writing a blog post daily, needing to make 4 quilts, shop and decorate for the holidays and all the other general stuff one needs to do (like do laundry and vacuum up pet hair!), I decided I needed another project.

I saw an email from AQS (American Quilter’s Society) that they are posting a red and white block each day for 25 days.


They call it 2018 Christmas Countdown. You can read more about it here. They have been doing this for 4 years; this will be year 5. AND you can still get all the blocks from years 1-4 and make a 100 Block Red and White quilt!

OK- so no, I am not planning to do 100 blocks in the next 24 days, but I may try to make the 2018 blocks. Yesterday, I grabbed a bunch of red and white (or red-ish) fabrics and made block 1.


I mean, I kept up with the 100 Modern blocks. Surely I can do this right?

Did I mention the blocks are 4″ finished (4 ½” unfinished) ?


My first block is done. Not perfect but done!


On to block 2! 

Are you going to join in the craziness and make some red and white blocks?

And here for Block 2.

happy quilting,
