quilty christmas update

I'm making progress on the Have Yourself A Quilty Little Christmas sampler!

These blocks are SO MUCH FUN to sew. Once I pick out my fabric (and you know how that can take hours!) the blocks go together in no time. Well, except for Mr. Cookie. He took a little longer since I'm not used to working with ric rac. I learned that ric rac isn't scary at all.

I'm a little obsessed with my gingerbread candyland theme here. It all came from that one candy print.

And for my spools, I selected fabrics that would look like ribbons and lace trims. I'm going to be really sad when I run out of this red lacy Flower Sugar print!

And even more ric rac, now on an ornament!

There is still time to join in on the fun! Details for the sew along are posted almost daily on Instagram by Lori Holt, with several new blocks created just for this sampler. You'll also need a copy of the Quilty Fun book. 

And before I leave you today, I want to say thank you for all the happy emails and comments about the upcoming blogger bundle of fabric that I selected for Fat Quarter Shop. I really appreciate it, and I will share more information and projects when the bundle arrives in the shop.
