It's almost time! . . . . .

for the first Christmas Quilt Along of the year! 

This Saturday, February 12th, I will be hosting the Quilt Along. Come visit my blog anytime on Saturday, sign up on Mr. Linky on my Christmas Quilt Along page (see the tab just under my header), and receive the first block pattern free! 

Here is a sneak peek of the first block.


The pattern that Sue and I designed uses blue for the background.  I decided to go a little more prim/country.  I am sure whatever colors you use will turn out great!

Sue should have her teaser block up any minute now and I am sure she used blue. Go take a peek here.

Remember, you don't have to be here all day . . . .whatever time zone you are in LOL . . . just work on something Christmasy . . . either for someone, a decoration, new stockings for the mantle, or whatever.  Throw in a Christmas movie, put on a Bing Crosby CD, have some hot chocolate and sew along with us whether for 10 minutes or for 10 hours.

It's sure to be lots of fun!

Blessings, Cathi

I'm joining in. I think both blocks look good, and now I will have to decide whether to go with the light or the dark background. I look forward to it. Thanks for doing this.

This is so funny, My Mom and I had planned last weekend that this Saturday we were gonna have a quilting bee day at her house, she is starting a quilt for my youngest cousin who is getting married in Sept, and I have always wanted to learn to quilt and in helping her I hope to learn some tricks.
I will definately be back Saturday before I head to her home and see if I can get in for the free pattern.
too cool!!

Nice block - I have always liked the LeMoyne Star and your fabric choices are great. Does this mean you will not be at Stitchin' Friends on Saturday? I hope not, but if so, we'll miss you!
