Christmas Row by Row



I'm teaching a Row x Row quilt that started last September. Every month we do a new row. Well, at least we are supposed to complete the rows! I had all my blocks in parts and pieces in every stage and thought it time to get them done! I finally got all the blanket stitching done on the poinsettias. I'll make the row tomorrow. This was for January.








This was February's block, we had to do 9 blocks. Lots of boring satin stitching, but all done now and the row is together.











This is for this month. I got all the rest of the fabric cut out for the other 7 blocks. I'm doing 4 with green stars and 4 with red stars.

The whole series was supposed to bust all my scraps of Christmas fabric. I bought Folk Art Christmas fabric for 4 years to make Christmas quilts for all my beds. Two are done, two more are cut out (only because I needed their leftovers!). I don't think my tub has gone down one little bit! And I only have one more row to go besides the border! I see lots more Christmas quilts in the works. Maybe I'll head over to Bonnie's and take a peek at what else I can do.

Very nice, Karen. The February one reminds me of a peppermint candy, LOL

I really like your Christmas row by row. The fabrics look great.

I made a row by row Christmas quilt in 2004 and I love it. I think the pattern was called "The 12 Rows of Christmas" or something like that. I really like your pattern and fabrics.

I am also wanting to do Christmas quilts for each bed. I am now working on Pat Sloan's "I Believe." It's been a lot of work, but I know it will be worth it.
