Quilt Along- Come join the fun!

Remember that zig zag quilt - a - long happening over at Mommy by Day, Crafter by Night? It's not too late to join in. Here we are in the beginning stages!

Step one: Get supplies. (Gather fabric.)  

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I am especially looking forward to it this year because by Christmas I won't be pregnant anymore, meaning that I won't be sick and uncomfortable and, I'll have a soft, warm new born to snuggle up with. At least three times a week I ask my husband if it's Christmas time yet? He's such a dear, he always answers yes. We've both begun humming Christmas songs under our breath and our little girls favorite demo button on her toy piano plays jingle bells. Yes, we've all been dreaming of a white Christmas in May... It's no wonder that when I went through my fabric scraps I was drawn to the greens and reds. I really want to participate in Ashley's quilt a long, but I really, really don't want it to cost me any money. And I think I have just enough scraps to do it- at least half sized.

Step two: Cutting Fabric isn't coming up until June 6th, so you still have plenty of time to gather your fabric!


  1. I'm joining in with this one, too. Bought my batting today. It will be my first ever quilt...

  2. Hey! Glad you've found my blog because now I've found yours. One thing I'd add about my maternity jeans tutorial is the thicker the fabric, the better, and if you can make the band get maybe 2 inches thinner at the top, it'le stay up better. Email me if you have questions! freeadri@gmail.com :)
