Monday I took an extra day off of childcare. I am so glad I did. I felt really good …I think I just needed a mental health day along with a little more time to recuperate.
I spent part of the day in the sewing room doing a little tidying and simple piecing. I just needed something simple and relaxing.
While I was cleaning I came across the leftovers from my Jingle Bell Square quilt top.
Hmmm…I know I don’t have another Christmas quilt in me for awhile so why not package this all up and send it on. I asked Kelli if she wanted it and she wasn’t interested. I told her I was going to hold a giveaway for it on the blog then. She said go for it.
Would you like to win the box of goodies?So here’s the deal. I have a box of leftovers of Christmas fabric. There is not enough to make the quilt but enough for a start. I also have the Quiltmaker magazine that has pattern for Jingle Bell Square in it. I did not follow the directions in the magazine, I cut all of my quilt using a companion ruler. That means that a portion of the fabric is cut into 1 1/2″ and 2 1/2″ strips. It also means that if you want to make the quilt you’d need to make it using the converted instructions I wrote about here.
If you forgot what the quilt looks like, here’s a picture of my quilt top.
Included in the gift box will be the magazine, miscellaneous Christmas fabric as well as fabrics cut into 1 1/2″ and 2 1/2″ strips.
If you would like a chance to win just leave a comment here telling if you have ever made a bed sized Christmas quilt before. We’ll pick a winner next week.
