Christmas Quilts- only 2 years late + Giveaway!

Christmas Quilts- only 2 years late + Giveaway!

So, yesterday i showed off the honey’s quilt…today i am showing off the rest of the crews quilts that they are getting finally this year!

A few years ago i was totally gung ho with swaps, trades and sewing bees….so i ended up somehow with quite a few christmas style of blocks.  What to do with them all?!  Put them together into 4 quilts for the kiddos for christmas!

The swaps i did over on aunt pitty pats in 2010.{in fact, she has a new christmas swap up right now if you feel like you want to participate. she is a wonderful host!}  i know, time flies!  After having the goal of having them done for christmas…..it is finally achieved this year.

These 2 are for the boys.  They are a little more tolirable and forgiving than the girls.  They have the swap blocks and dividing them are mega 9 patches.  These i pieced together after finding a wonderful precut pile of christmas fabric squares.  The fabric seriously isn’t the best, but it will get loved, snuggled and washes.  I’m not making an heirloom here.  Just a christmas quilt. 🙂

because of my speed piecing, i didn’t notice that i had sewn all the blocks and 9 patches the same….so i wasn’t able to turn them.  Thus, the ended up in lines.   a line of applique blocks, a line of 9 patches.  I am saying i did this on purpose so they could recognize their own quilts….because the backs are the same.. You know. go with me on that one, ok.

This next one is for Eliza.  She is a pink girl and i somehow had sorted all the blocks and put these together at one point. Fuzzy pink flannel on the back.

This last one is for Jerika– she is the oldest and i thought this little bunch from an online sewing bee would be perfect for her.   These blocks i took a little more time with and sashed them with some crazy orangy pink/red fabric.  I really do like this one.

So the question is — how early is too early to give them?

And– where is my quilt?!

Just for fun how about a little giveaway- after finishing the 4 quilts i am thinking that i no longer want to look at the christmas 9 patches and have no idea what to do with the last few blocks.Just to confuse you even more there are 13 blocks. lol They measure {or should, no promises made there} 12 1/2″ X 12 1/2″.

So, one lucky reader will win the pack of Christmas blocks so you can make your own quilt!  Maybe yours won’t take you 2 years to finish.   Really this is an easy sewing projects and a great beginner sewing projects too.   No tricky business here….just sew the blocks together and quilt it!  No sashing needed, or special sewing techniques….. unless you are a go-getter and want to sew it that way!

Rules for the giveaway–

1)  leave a comment here for one entry

2)  Like me on Facebook and leave another comment saying so– for a second entry

–if you are already a fan, just leave that second comment–

3)  Winner will be announced on Monday morning Nov. 5th

    Your work is lovely. I think you should tuck the squares away and next year pull them out and you will feel refreshed and think of some needy person who you would like to give it to after you put it together. As they say absence makes the heart grow fonder!!

    Hello Becky! I took 9 years to finish a x-mas tree skirt!!! As I only worked on it at that time of year! So being able to win a quilt with the blocks all ready to sew together should only take half as long! Love your site. Lori.

    Your quilts are absolutely beautiful and I love the holiday theme. It takes me two years to make one, I never seem to get as much time as I want. They are very expensive to buy so I try to do it myself.
