Christmas Sewing, Quilt Magazines

Merry Christmas Prep With Quiltmania

Are you getting into the holiday spirit yet?

At my house we’re in full Christmas mode.

My new favorite Christmas music:

Warmer In The Winter

A new Christmas corner with some favorite finds of the year:

A new sign that Clare painted for us, a primitive tree,

an antique “T” quilt & some tin toys…

AND a new magazine featuring one of my quilts!

Lots of beautiful quilts inside this issue!

Wish I had more time…

Quiltmania’s Christmas volume #128

(Nov. Dec. 2018) is on newsstands now.

The featured quilter is Merri Garton, a friend of Di Ford,

& the contributing quilters beside yours truly are;

Edyta Sitar, Selma Bennett, Annemarie Yohnk,

Martha Walker, Bonnie Sullivan & Karen Styles.

You don’t have time to make the quilts before this Christmas,

but you’ll want to make them all eventually once you see them!

My quilt features Tiny Dresden plates,

some hand embroidery, some spools & other pieced blocks

& bit more applique.

I used freezer paper templates,

but you can use the applique of your choice

including fusible web if that’s your preference.

I’ve been thinking of hosting another Quilt-Along with this pattern…

If you don’t already have my “A Merry Christmas To You” pattern,

this is your opportunity to get it along with many other beautiful quilt patterns

for less than the retail price of my pattern!

It uses my Tiny Dresden Template #216 (4 1/2″ finished block)

& you probably already have that template, am I right?

I hope your Christmas shopping, prep & parties are festive!

Just Keep Sewing…

  1. As soon as I saw your pattern, I was thinking quilt-a-long. Then I continued reading and saw that you were considering it too. Count me in!!!! This is gorgeous! I already know to whom I’d gift my completed quilt. You’re right — Let’s Sew!

    1. Thanks, Sue!
      I’m glad to hear you want to sew this quilt with me, especially now that you know what you’re getting into, lol. I will have to start thinking about parameters for our next project.(AFTER CHRISTMAS!)
      Merry Christmas, Sue!

  2. Love that pattern and just may be the answer for those looking for a Christmas sew along! I’d be interested! Merry Christmas!

    1. Thanks, Liz! I’m glad to know that you too would be interested in sewing this quilt along with me! I’ll be looking at how to best feature this quilt as a Quilt-Along after the first of the year.
      Merry Christmas, Liz!
