Countdown to Christmas…

The Moda Bake Shop is counting down the days until Christmas with a new 6″ block every day in December.

This was Block 1 ~ Peppermint Twist by Kristina Brinkerhoff of Center Street Quilts.

Block 2 ~ Christmas Cottage by Sterling LaBosky of Sterling Quilt Co.  Sterling couldn’t make just one house… cottage.

Jane Davidson – yes, that Jane Davidson… QuiltJane! – created a block.

Block 3 ~ Gift-Wrapped Star.

Jane shares ideas on how to use the block in a mini-quilt with nine blocks, or a gift bag using just a single block.  I don’t think making just one is going to be possible… the projects are that cute.

Christine Weld of The Quarter Inch shares Block 4 ~ Arkansas Snowflake.

One of the questions that is coming up is “what are the fabrics?”

The easy answer is that the backgrounds are all Bella Solid White – either 98 or 200, depending on the preference of the quilter making the block.

As for the rest…

Some of the fabrics are from upcoming groups and some are Moda Basics.  Starting with the red group at the top, from left to right, the fabrics are from the following collections…

Red Group No. 1:

Green Group:

Red Group No. 2:

Block 5 ~ Peppermint Swirl by Susan Vaughn for The Felted Pear.

For the rest of the blocks… The Moda Bake Shop.

Now… if you would like a chance to win a Fat Eighth bundle of these fabrics, just leave a comment by Midnight on Sunday.

In your comment, tell us who your best quilting buddy is.

If your name is the selected – by the random-number-generator – both of you will receive a bundle.  (The winner will be notified via e-mail.)

Happy Friday!

  1. A friend from church is my quilting buddy. We don’t really get together to quilt as our schedules don’t permit but we share ideas and quilt-talk!

    1. My best quilting buddy lives four hours away! Whenever I go to see her, my featherweight accompanies me. We have spent many, many pleasant afternoons sewing, visiting, and quilting.

  2. My friend Aurora is my best quilting buddy. We have similar interests in quilting. These blocks are beautiful,. My daughter has Tod me, “No more Christmas quilts”. But clearly she has no idea what she is talking about. How can you not do just one, or tweny , more?.

  3. My best quilt buddy lives near the Pacific Ocean and we don’t get together nearly as much as we’d like, but when we do the fabric flies!

  4. My quilting buddy is long time friend Robin. She is the one who influenced me to try my hand at quilting. We get together as often as possible to sew together!!

  5. My best quilt buddy is my daughter Theresa. We love to get together and quilt, purchase fabric, and share ideas. One of our favorite activities is to chat on the phone and look at Pinterest ideas. We are separated by 1800 miles but it doesn’t seem so far in this age of cell phones and IPads.

  6. Miss LuLu Kitty is my quilting buddy! She is always there to help “press” my fabrics and pick out my thread…with her teeth!

  7. No local quilting buddies, but I guess you could say my best quilting buddies are Mary Fons, from whose Quilty videos on You Tube I learned about quilting, and Bonnie Hunter, whose blog and Instagram continue to teach me and give me a virtual community. This blog is also kind of like a quilting buddy – I learn all kinds of things from it, it’s fun to hear from, and it shares stuff with me. In particular, every quilt I make begins on the graph paper sheet provided in the fun and free tab. Thank you very much for that gift alone!
    Thanks for the holiday cheer. These blocks are a great idea.

  8. My quilt buddy would be my sister. Although I live in Illinois and she lives in CO, we try to get together at least once a year and sew at a retreat. I have to say that I’m the instigator here — I introduced her to quilting during one of her visits here in IL and she went back to CO and signed up for classes at her LQS!

  9. My best quilting buddy is Bea. We have a wonderful time at retreats, quilt bees, and whenever we can get together!

  10. My mother is my best quilting buddy! We live a few miles away and have the best time chatting about patterns, fabric and notions!

  11. My best buddy is my daughter. We’d love to get together more often to sew, but we always find time to talk about our projects, fabric choices, etc. and sometimes, we like the same thing and other times, we don’t, but it’s always helpful and a great balance – she has a good eye for fabrics and colors. Thanks for the chance to win lovely fabrics!

  12. My best quilting buddy is Marlene. She’s the first person I go to when I have a question or need help.

  13. My favorite Quilting buddy is my sister-in-law although we have never actually quilted together! She is in Colorado and I am in Texas but every time we talk or at family visits all we do is talk quilts and show each other pictures of our most recent masterpieces. ( I always have the TV on in my sewing room but that does not count as a buddy.) I’d love to be able to share some fabric with her! Thanks so much for the really cute blocks patterns!

  63. My husband. He used to do everything by hand but several years ago he had to limit his hand work due to RA (although he would cut fabric and press for me while I sewed). So I found a Singer Featherweight 1 1/2 years ago and he has learned how to use it. Now we work side by side and it’s great. He has also attempted some free motion quilting on our Sweet Sixteen! Most of the quilts we make are donated.

We gather each week at someone’s home, where the host prepares a yummy meal and then we sew and talk for hours. Together we have made two quilts for special friends.

  97. I’m 1100 miles from where I last quilted with humans, and almost 2 hours from anything that could resemble a new quilting community, so I guess my best quilting buddy is my couch potato pup Amos. For serious quilting companionship, I look to Bonnie Hunter’s blog and Quilt Cam.

  105. My friend, Susan, whom I use to teach with is who I quilt with. We do other crafts together too. A couple years ago we did a BOTM quilt together. Each of us set our own goals for our quilts. It was fun to see how very different they ended up being.

  106. I would have to say Karlene is my best quilting bud! She is an expert quilter, my birthday twin and we both seem to love the same things. (Also, she lives around the corner). Happy Holidays. I can’t wait to do the Countdown to Christmas blocks!

  113. My quilting buddy is now deep into the ham radio culture and so I am seeking a new sewing buddy. I really miss the quarterly mini sewing retreats we used to have. Now I depend on my local quilt shop (SewItUp) for quilty peeps.

  114. I am blessed with multiple best quilting buddies- the newest addition to my crew is my older sister Mary who has taken to quilting like a duck to water!

  115. My best quilting buddy is my daughter, Sage. She’s a lovely introvert with a wickedly funny sense of humor and a compassionate heart the size of Texas…time spent with her is always fun!

  116. My sister-in-law Wendy is my best quilting buddy. We don’t live close to each other, so we Skype a couple of times a week to catch up and plan.

  117. I have a few quilting buddies, but I would have to say Cindy is my best quilting buddy. She is always encouraging me to take classes with her or go to retreats.

  122. My mom is my quilting buddy! I’m going over to her house soon to finish my first double slice layer cake quilt.

  123. My best quilting buddy is Jennifer; we met in an online group! We live close enough to schedule an occasional day of shopping and lunch, and have traveled to a quilting retreat together once. We also plan “sewing days” where we work on the same project, texting photos and updates! This would be a wonderful Christmas gift for both of us!

  124. My mom is my quilting buddy. She supports me with fabric and also an honest opinion. It is good when you can count on someone to praise when it is awesome and also give helpful advice for how to make something better.

  132. My quilting buddy is my sister Shanna. We live in different states but talk weekly and visit quilt shops and sew on the few times we get together each year.

Each of our sons has autism and we get together each week for a buddy visit for them …. and while they play, we quilt! It’s the perfect way to enjoy time together, take care of our boys and quilt to our heart’s content.
    Thanks for the opportunity.

  142. Paula, who co-runs our church quilting ministry, is my quilting buddy. I know she would love to win some of that fabric, as would I!

  145. Currently my quilting buddy lives thousands of miles away but will be together again next year when we move back home.

  147. I don’t have a quilting buddy but, I do enjoy the encouragement from my quilting guild. They are a great source of inspiration.

  148. My best sewing buddy was my granddaughter, but I think I’ve lost her to more interesting teen activities. So for now, it has to be my Spunky Kitty. Love the Countdown blocks!

  149. My quilting buddy and I were both teachers and got together at least once a month on Friday night to have our own little ‘bee’ sewing time. I have since retired, but we still get together when we can for an evening sew or a ‘day retreat’ when she’s off. Fun times and we’d love to share these great fabrics for Christmas!
