December Block

Hello ladies! I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends.

**I made this quilt for a swap**

For the December block, I have chosen to go with a pattern from the Quiltville website called "String-X." I have a lot of scraps and would love to use some of them in a quilt for our family room. My goal this year is to do A LOT of scrap quilting so I thought this was a good place to start.

I will be sending out the packets of fabric tomorrow (Monday). You each will be receiving a variety of scraps as well as some solid black for the background. I hope I have included enough fabric. If there isn't quite enough, feel free to add from your stash of scraps. The Quiltville website gives step by step instructions on how to construct the blocks. You will be putting together four of the smaller blocks to make one large block.

I know it is the holidays, so please don't worry if you are unable to get them back to me this month. I can already feel the pressure of the last minute scramble to make gifts myself.

Thanks everyone! This has been fun!! :)


  1. Yeah!! So excited to see another project! I'll check out that tutorial now!

  2. Wow, love that block. So exciting to start another one, I'm loving this buzzy bee!!

  3. Your quilting is amazing and so grand you offer the patterns to all. I don't quilt but admire those who do. The colors and detail are
    lovely for your project this month.
