A Merry Christmas To You Quilt-Along

A Merry Christmas To You, Quilt-Along Week #1

Week # 1

I’m so glad that you’ve decided to sew my

“A Merry Christmas To You” quilt.

Whether you’re making the large quilt shown here in the beautiful Quiltmania setting,

or the 4 smaller quilts shown below from the back cover,

the instructions are the same.

The only difference will be after you have the 4 small quilt tops made.

You will either sew them into 1 quilt and add the borders or

stop & quilt them as 4 individual quilts.

Pretty clever, I know Lol!

Either way, you’ll want to join my new “Sewing With Susan” Facebook group where you can see

& show your progress of this project with other quilters.

So, get the verse background fabric &

.05 Micron pen with color matching the 12 wt. cotton thread (or perle cotton thread).

Trace “A Merry Christmas To You” from the template page

onto the fabric as shown in the diagram on page 1 of pattern.

Using the cotton thread, stitch the verse with the stitch of your choice.

I chose to use a stem stitch.

It’s a bit “beefier” than a back stitch & I like that!

You have all week to get this finished.

I find it to be a good task to do while watching TV.

It makes the time go by quickly.

Do you find this to be true?

I can’t believe that after writing this post I found this pic of me stitching in front of the TV!

I know that’s where I am because I see a bit of our living room carpet, Lol.

 I use a small spring tension hoop.

I like how easy it is to move around on my piece as I stitch.

See you back here next Wednesday!

Just Keep Sewing…
