Join me in making a super fun, super cute, Christmas wall hanging.
I know, it's the middle of July and Christmas is a whole 1/3 of a year away, but I'm wasting no time on getting this quilt along off the ground.
These are the four main blocks that will comprise this wall hanging - four busy little elves. Christmas is all year round at the North Pole. Right now the blocks are pinned to my design board. Sashing blocks will be designed as we go.
The main blocks will be published, one every third Saturday, starting on July 29th. Sashing sections will come with each block. Each set, block plus sashing, will sell for $3.00.
The final block and the construction of the quilt will be free, and will be published at the end of October.
As we go, I'll update my blog with special instructions or information about how to work with specific parts of the quilt.
The final layout will look more or less like this. There may be some minor changes, but the size should not vary by more than an inch in either direction.
Mark your calendar with the dates:
- July 22, preliminary tips for working with the blocks
- July 29: Block 1, Elf painting the North Pole sign
- August 19: Block 2, Elf with the reindeer
- September 2, Elf carrying packages
- September 23, Elf checking the list
- October 14, the center block and assembly
