I'm loving all the Christmas projects around and have decided to jump in boots and all, hoping to have a Christmas quilt finished for Christmas 2010 (I take a long time to baste/quilt the project, so sue me). Let's think outside the box and go with a finished 12.5" square block, but it can consist of 4 x 6.5" sqs, 16 x 4.5" sqs or even strips say, 2 x 6.5" x 12.5", any size that equals a 12.5" finished square. This way the recipient can move things around for a bigggg quilt or a few smaller wall hangings, table runners. The swap will run for 12 mths so if you're in for the long haul you'll end up with 12 x 12.5" sq blocks, that's at least 3' x 4' without sashing/borders:) You will have 4 weeks to make each "block" and 'cos we're starting now the last block will arrive after Dec 15 next year, hence me hoping to finish it by Christmas 2010! Please no flakers, if you don't intend to send a block please don't sign up. Profiles will be checked. Any ??? feel free to ask below or pm me. Let's have Christmas fun for a whole year!

I would love to do this, but was wondering how we'll be informed of the swap each month so we don't miss a month. Will we be assigned the same partner each month?

Tona 12/16/2008 #

Duh! I should've said I'm in this, but have the same questions as stated in last post.

Welcome Tona, once partners are assigned for a swap I will put up next mths swap details so there will be time to find it and sign up again :)

I like the victorian style colors for my Christmas colors. deeper reds/burgandy/or mauve and the blues (of course!), deeper greens and glittery stuff. I am SO jazzed about this. Mary

Wow this is going to be fab. I love deep Victorian colours, deep reds, creams, golds, whites, greens but only blues if they are part of a scene.

are there going to be themes for each month or are were just making our own christmas themed blocks each month?

ozduchess 01/ 8/2009 #

Welcome Thanislas. We are making our own Christmas themed blocks each month. It can be a 12" sq or 2 - 6 x 12" panels etc so long as finished works equal 12.5". Have fun with this.:)
