Christmas in July Block-a-thon
Happy Thursday everyone! I don’t know how I’m even on the computer still as my brain has gone numb trying to move my blog posts from my old KimsCraftyApple Blog over to my new ‘PersimonDreams blog. I did actually manage to move over my posts from One Beer Mom – now I just have to make my file small enough from KCA… Anyway – I’m here!
Last year, Quilt Dad started Blockapalooza, a sampler block quilt fest of the modern variety. This was the first quilt-along that I participated in and I fell in LOVE with them. This year, Christmas in July Block-A-Thon is holding the same concept but going with a more Christmas theme! AND I got to design a block for it! Yeah!
Christmas in July Block-A-Thon is a fun, free quilt-along with some amazing bloggers on the roster, like FatQuarterShop, Pat Sloan, PamKittyMorning, Quilting Gallery, and many more!
FreeSpirit sent us each different fabrics to work with, and we’re seeing some incredibly behind the scenes creative blocks being designed with it! The rest is hush hush for now, but we’re really itching to see how the whole quilt comes together!
The Christmas in July Block-A-Thon starts in…wait – can you guess? That’s right – JULY! So I hope you make a little collection of ‘Christmas’ fabrics and get your rotary cutters and sewing machine’s ready! It’s going to be FUN!
All of the tutorials for the blocks will be posted on the FreeSpirit blog so be sure to keep an eye over there once July comes around! (Don’t worry – I’ll be reminding you about it too!)
