Countdown to Christmas...

Countdown to Christmas...

Written by: 

The Moda Bake Shop is counting down the days until Christmas with a new 6" block every day in December.

This was Block 1 ~ Peppermint Twist by Kristina Brinkerhoff of Center Street Quilts.

Block 2 ~ Christmas Cottage by Sterling LaBosky of Sterling Quilt Co.  Sterling couldn't make just one house... cottage.

Jane Davidson - yes, that Jane Davidson... QuiltJane! - created a block.

Block 3 ~ Gift-Wrapped Star.

Jane shares ideas on how to use the block in a mini-quilt with nine blocks, or a gift bag using just a single block.  I don't think making just one is going to be possible... the projects are that cute.

Christine Weld of The Quarter Inch shares Block 4 ~ Arkansas Snowflake.

One of the questions that is coming up is "what are the fabrics?"

The easy answer is that the backgrounds are all Bella Solid White - either 98 or 200, depending on the preference of the quilter making the block.

As for the rest...

Some of the fabrics are from upcoming groups and some are Moda Basics.  Starting with the red group at the top, from left to right, the fabrics are from the following collections...

Red Group No. 1:

Green Group:

Red Group No. 2:

Block 5 ~ Peppermint Swirl by Susan Vaughn for The Felted Pear.

For the rest of the blocks... The Moda Bake Shop.
