Count Down to Christmas in July Hop

Only 2 more days and it begins. The Christmas in July Blog Hop kicks off bright and early Thursday morning with postings by Sharon over at  Vrooman’s Quilts and Carole  From My Caroline Home

                                                  The full list and links are noted below.

 Every day of the Hop will also have steps to a Christmas Quilt Along by Sarah (the wonderful creator and coordinator of this Hop, over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I was thrilled to be part of the test team for this quilt. I took pictures of some of the steps as we went along.

This was the start. The fun part, picking just the right fabrics.

Then came the making of many HST's and my least favorite but very important step, squaring up.

The results were worth it.

It's coming together now.

And here is my finished top.  It is on the floor for this picture as it got to big for my design wall. Sarah will give you a step a day.  Work on it step by step and you'll have a Christmas Quilt done in plenty of time for Christmas.

I'll be seeing you on Sunday the 17th.
