Today is the Christmas Quilt- a- long day for March and this time I am ready for it!
Our hostess today is Joanna

Today we get to see the next step for the quilt so I plan on getting  my fabric cut, since I couldn't pin down which fabric I wanted to use last time.

I am also going to try and cut some fabric for a couple of other Christmas project I am working on so stay tuned. I will be updating this post for time to time today vs creating separate posts like I did last time

So dust off your Christmas tree, turn the Christmas light on outside and turn up the carols its time to get some Christmas sewing done!


******UPDATE #1*******

I had decided on my fabric for the mystery quilt last month however when I took a look at it this morning I didn't care for it. So I went with something different and I  must say I LOVE IT. The fabric is all from my Christmas box, but I think it could still be used for an everyday quilt too. I also decided to just cut the medium and light requirements since I think I am going to try and get a nice white fabric. I just have a plain white and I think I would like a patterned one......but I can't find anything anywhere!

Background- White
Light- tan/glod
Medium- blue
Dark- Red


The medium and light strips cut and ready to sew together




the strips sewing together.....

Now I have to get lunch ready and then start cutting the strips into blocks


******UPDATE #2*******

Well nothing says Christmas like a sliegh ride and guess what drove pass my house this afternoon
its a little hard to see but its a sleigh ride there were two groups driving in the village...kinda of strange but its works for the Christmas QAL...lol

I decided to make lunch....this is a pasta, veggie and ham Bake..should be ready soon

Here are my strips cut up into 2x3.5 squares. I have them in piles of 10pairs which is 20 in each pile...lots of cutting but oh so exciting!!

So now off to eat lunch and then I will get started into sewing these into 4block pairs
