Dec 10: Jolly St. Nick

Happy Holiday’s Moda Bake Shopper’s!!!  It’s Melissa Corry from Happy Quilting and I am so excited to be here to share my Jolly St. Nick block as part of the Countdown to Christmas.   One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is all of the Christmas music.   I remember singing my lungs out in school Christmas programs.  In my 5th grade program,  I got to sing a duet with my twin sister of Jolly Ol’ St. Nicholas.   Working on this block reminded me of that memory, so I named the block after the song 🙂 So let’s get Merry and make some Ho Ho piecing goodness!!!

Welcome to Day 6 of the Moda Bake Shop Countdown to Christmas!  My name is Jen Daly and I’m so happy to be here today to share my “Reindeer Games” block—so named by my daughter because of the checkerboard center.  Reindeer Games is a variation on my favorite quilt block, the Sawtooth Star, and I just love how using two different red fabrics gives this block a layered, three-dimensional look.
