Hi quilt alongers! I saw Charlie Brown’s Christmas last night, so for me it’s officially the holiday season!
If you’re like me, then you’re up to your eyebrows in holiday parties, holiday baking, and holiday gift giving. The fact that you are even here reading this blog post means a lot to me.
Some of you have been simply heroic in your efforts to keep up with the quilt along and I really appreciate it! And yes, I’m talking about you, Pamela! <grin>
Seeing how hard you are all working, I was really encouraged to keep up too! Thanks for the extra push. It really helped me!
Here are my Christmas blocks. For this wall hanging, I'm using Colorway 2.
And here are two of my berry colored blocks. For my lap quilt I'm using Colorway 1. I am really loving these colors!
Today is our block linky party. To enter the giveaway, link up a photo of two blocks…one of each colorway. If you need details on how to link, click here. If you run into trouble--don't sweat it--just email me your photo before the Thursday deadline.
Don’t be shy! Please share your photo to the Facebook and Flickr groups too. Although that does not enter you in the giveaway (you must link up using the linky to officially enter the giveaway) it does allow all of us to ooh and ahhh your glorious color choices and to applaud the progress you’re making. If you’re on Instagram, please share your photo there too. It’s so awesome to see them there, and to show you some love with a little “heart”. Just be sure to use the tags @inquiringquilter #BerryCrossQAL so everyone can find the photos on Instagram easily.
So here are the rules! Post a photo of your Berry Cross blocks by midnight Thursday to win a $25 gift certificate from my quilt along sponsor, Always in Stitches.
I encourage you all to stop by the store or browse online. They've added lots of new fabrics, fresh from market! In the store, you'll be overwhelmed by all the cute Christmas displays. If you're looking for a last minute gift for a quilter friend, you'll find it here!
If you’re here in Indianapolis, the store is still collecting mittens for Good Samaritan, so be sure to bring a pair—purchased, knitted, crocheted or sewn—when you visit the shop.
Again, the linkup will be open through midnight EST Thursday, December 8th. Good luck everyone! I'll see you here next Friday to announce the winner and to show you how to put your blocks together. If you want to work ahead, you're welcome to!
