Dec 2: Grandmother

I am a proud Grandmother of five beautiful grandchildren from 14 to 2 years old.  I added this block to many of their quilts.  I hope that someday they will know the significance of why I placed this block in their quilts.  Each of my children have a Christmas quilt with this block to snuggle under to read their favorite Christmas Eve storybook.

Dec 1: Country Winter

Hello!  It’s Amanda of Pieced Just Sew and I am excited to be kicking off this year’s Countdown to Christmas!  This year’s blocks will be made with a variety of red prints, solid red, and solid white and each block can be made as both a 12” block and a 6” block. Be sure to check back each day between now and Christmas for a brand new block!

Today’s block may look familiar.  It is the block from my recent Country Summer quilt tutorial.  However, in the spirit of this time of year, I have renamed it Country Winter!  So dig into your stash, pick a couple of your favorite red prints, and let’s get started!

Counting Down the Days

The most wonderful time of the year has arrived! Yes, it is time for our annual Countdown to Christmas! This year our Chefs have worked up an array of blocks in 6″ and 12″ – all made in seasonal red and white fabrics. Over here at the Moda Bake Shop, we will be using fat quarters to make our blocks but use whichever precut works the best for you.

We will have a new block each day until Christmas, plus some bonus blocks and quilt settings to keep you sewing right through the new year. Join us! Be sure to stop by our Moda Bake Shop Facebook group to see what others are sewing.

Cornerstone: Dresden Hollow

Hello from camp counselor Mary Andra Holmes. Remember back about a month ago when we were on the center medallion? Thinking back I remember asking you to save all those tiny left over pieces as you worked on your Camp Oda May Medallion Quilt. Now is the time to gather all of them together for two appliqued choices for this week’s cornerstones!

Path A: Orange Beach

Good morning from camp counselor Mary Andra Holmes. I’m at Orange Beach with campers whose creative adventure took them to Row 8 and we choose applique. The sun is rising and has a beautiful orange glow. The Orange Peel block was a perfect choice to celebrate this day.
