 Not as in grouchy but for cranking out tons of these tumbling blocks 
for Christmas quilts for the hospital!
 I have pulled a pile of prints that will work for kids so I can make my 49 pieces for each one.
 I like two contrasting colors but might have to improvise for some of the piles 
when there isn't quite enough of one print.
This is a win, win endeavor;  I use up these piles of fabric 
and the quilts will cheer up an unfortunate child this holiday season!

Next up is the marathon of piecing which should go very quickly with these large
and easily pieced blocks!


  1. How nice!!! It's always fun to make something you know is going to be appreciated.

  2. What a wonderful thing to do this holiday.

  3. Bless you for making the children's hospital stay a little bit brighter.

  4. So nice - what a wonderful gift you are making for so many.

  5. LOL I was like, "Me too! I'm cranky too!!" and then I kept reading and said, "Oh, no, not like that. hahahaha!"

    I LOVE Christmas quilts. I don't know where this came from. My mother doesn't know where this came from. I used to get really weird about the holidays. (My son would say, I just get stressed now) I guess no one sees my joy. Anyhow, I have secretly started collecting Christmas quilting fabric -- and I can't even quilt, yet. You be my spirit animal. I look forward to watching your holly jolly progress :)

  6. People are so charitable. Your quilts will mean so much to those who are ill this Christmas. How wonderful of you!

  7. Our guild does year round quilting to make quilts for handing out on Christmas Eve. One day I hope I can help distribute, but since we are always home for Christmas, it't doubtful I will get the chance any time soon. Good luck with your projects!

  8. What a fun project! I’m not sure why, but Christmas quilts always get me excited. I’m sure I’m not the only one, so it will be great to donate these to give some warm fuzzy feelings to someone who really needs them!

I measured out my 120" for the warp for my 24" Knitter's Loom by Ashford and began threading!  Of course, there were a few set...
