Christmas Quilting In August

I feel like I'm late to the game by saying, "Christmas Quilting in August."
This was suppose to be one of those Christmas in July projects, but it didn't happen.
It might have been because I was lazy, busy, summer heat, and the other usual excuses.
But, now I'm off and sewing Christmas!

I have a thing about those Moda Jelly Rolls. If I see one on sale I feel the need to buy it.
Never mind what I'm going to do with it. It just calls my name and says, "BUY ME!"
I had a Countdown To Christmas jelly roll AND a pattern by Missouri Star Quilt Company.
Perfect combination!

There's a gazillion pieces in it and it will be big. I like big!
Here's that cute Jenny doing this quilt in a video:


  1. Great minds and all...I believe August better timing than July for Christmas thinking and sewing!!

  2. Oh, this one would be a great pattern to use up the strips and squares of Holiday fabrics in that tote - thanks.

  3. I haven't even THOUGHT Christmas sewing yet! Can't wait to see your pretty quilt! XO

  4. Looks like the perfect pattern for those holiday prints. Have fun!

  5. Looks like the perfect pattern for those holiday prints. Have fun!

  6. Lovely and fun. Christmas any time of year is good. Your quilt will be wonderful. Happy Holidays...Jiingle Bells...Silent Night..Dashing through the snow...just a little holiday music for you to have in your head while you are sewing.

  7. Cool pattern and how fun to make something Christmas and be ahead of the game.

  8. Jelly rolls, I love ALL forms of jelly rolls.
    I also have to buy them when they are on sale.
    Green Fairy has the best deals
    Now you are tempting me, and I have a box full
