Christmas Quilt 2012: Blocks 1 & 2

With just a month left before Christmas, I decided that I need to make us a new Christmas quilt. There was a quilt-along that I have really wanted to do in July, but the fabric I wanted to use wasn't out until sometime in August, so lo and behold I missed the quilt-along. But now all the blocks have been posed and I can just make all of them at my own pace. Here is a link to the block-thon. All the block tutorials can be found on the Free Spirit Fabrics blog.

The fabric I am using is Deb Strain's Share the Joy Chrismas line.

I like that fabric line, because there are a lot of smaller prints. I prefer that for the smaller blocks. Some blocks in this block-thon are only 6x6 finished!

So without further ado I present to you blocks 1 & 2: Block 1's tutorial can be found here. The unfinished size is 18.5 x 10.5:

The second block's tutorial can be found here. This one was quite big, unfinished size being 18.5 x 18.5. I used up the panel on this block. I love how it turned out!

I am quite enjoying this quilt-along! So far all of them have been pretty easy. I also love how they are all different sizes! Thy are also all very Christmas-y, either presents, or tinsel, or Christmas trees! I will be posting more blocks tomorrow.

Also be on the lookout for a bunch of my finished quilts! I finished them a while ago, I just need to take pictures. It is quite hard to take pictures of quilts inside an apartment, because the lighting is never quite right and there isn't enough space!
