Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

I'm So Excited!

Why? Because it's the first of this year's Christmas Quiltalong weekends this weekend!  Whoop whoop!

Needle, Thread, Happiness

Joanna at Needle, Thread, Happiness is hosting the sleep over this month, and the wonderful QuiltSue has thrown down a brilliant challenge - are YOU up for it?

Can you make a Christmas quilt without using red or green fabrics? 


It's a nice small size - no bigger than 96" around the outside in total (full rules and pernickety details are on the tab at the top of the page), but did I mention that there are no red or greens in this Christmas project?

I'm getting my thinking cap on as I have no idea on this one - I'd better get and commune with my stash and see what I can come up with...

Come on and enjoy the party! Get your Santa hat on and break out the sherry - there'll be chatting and sewing and nibbles, and loads of fun!

Joanna will have a Mr Linky up on her first post of the weekend tomorrow, so I'll see you in the morning!


  1. It's already Saturday here, so I'll have to wait till Sunday. (not fair) No red or green, but what about "olive"? Is that classed as xmasy green?
    Can't wait to see what this is all about, then I have to work out the linky thing. I finished the country charmer table runner, so should have time to make a start on this one now. Enjoy your weekend Hazel.

    1. Why do you think we've run the QAL for the whole weekend this year, rather than just our (GMT) Saturday, Sue? :-)

      I don't think that the quilt police will allow you 'olive' on this challenge - Sue has a ban on 'green', not 'Christmassy green, after all!

      The linky thing is easy - wait till Joanna posts up, then enter your name then blog address. Let Sue/Joanna/me know if you need a hand.

  2. Susan, I am going to put Mr. Linky up soon since our time zones are so different. After all, the weekend has begun for me as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for the nice post, Hazel.

  3. I am ready to play with you gals.
