Christmas Quilt Along on Saturday

Come sew with us during the Christmas Quilt along. I will be working on a snowman wallhanging and cutting out fabric for a tree skirt. Here is what I did last month.

I made the checkers and the bag they all go in. I did not do a Christmas theme so we can use it all year. The colors match my family room and are from my 369 quilt. I painted a crown on the opposite side of the checker for King. I have always wanted my checkers that way. The ones we have do not have the jagged edge so they stack to be King or did not have the crown on the opposite side, as my grandparents set did.

So Yay....   Then I made the snowman. I want to make more of these as well. I need to find red and green jersey knit material.

I can't wait to see what everyone is working on this time. See you Saturday!!!


  1. What did you use for the checkers? I like that they are not black and red like most sets.

  2. I can't wait for Saturday! Will be sipping hot cocoa and listening to Christmas songs here while I sew. Can't wait to "cya" there!!

  3. I so love the snowman. Wouldn't a family of them look good. Have a good day today.

  4. The snowman is really cute, looking forward to seeing what you get done today!
