Christmas Quilt Block Swap (Update)

I can’t believe it’s already October. I walked outside of my Louisiana home and was greeted with weather in the 40s! I had to dig out my sweater and have finally surrendered (happily) to the fact that it is now Fall. Whew!

Being that it’s October, I just wanted to give a little update on the Christmas Quilt Block Swap! For those of you participating, you should have received an email a little over a month ago with details and an address to send your blocks to! I already received one package of blocks…super cute! I’m so excited to see what everyone comes up with.

Just a reminder, the deadline to get the blocks in is October 15th! That’s 11 days away! 😀

I ended up being a cutting/ironing machine over the weekend. These pics are taken using the Hipstamatic app on the iPhone. It’s so fun!

Here’s a little sneak peek of the three fabrics that my blocks will be made of. The “ribbon” will be Kona Snow and a Kona cotton in some red color. Shows how much I pay attention to detail. :(

Aren’t those fabrics so fun? I tend to lean towards whimsy with Christmas. :)

A minor hiccup though…my machine is acting up. It needs to go to the shop to get looked at or something. I hope this doesn’t take too long, because I can’t WAIT to show y’all the final blocks! :) 

Are you guys super excited to see what everyone is coming up with? I know I am! :) For those of you who are participating, how are your blocks coming along?


  1. Oh, I’m excited to see your blocks. I finished all 12 of mine using a Fruitcake layer cake and I just need to send them out. I hope to do that sometime this week. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone has come up with.
