Countdown to Christmas 2021

Countdown to Christmas 2021

It's a fun way to stay creative and find time for yourself each day during this busy season.

Please read the General Information at the bottom of this post.


Our 2021 theme is Cozy Little Christmas - sweaters, mittens, cocoa! How do you stay warm in the winter?

If you haven't sewn along with us in December, you can find some basic info below. The main thing to know is that this is a msytery quilt format so you won't know the project ahead of time. We will have a quilt and a smaller project so you won't need to make a block each day unless you are doing both projects.

We highly recommend joining our Facebook group to join in showing off your blocks: Moda Bake Shop Bakers on Facebook.

Some info for our 2021 Countdown to Christmas:

  • Blocks will be posted here each day from December 1 to December 25 with a bonus block on December 26.
  • Project patterns will follow the blocks.
  • Blocks will be 18" for the quilt and 6" for the smaller project.
  • Fabric requirements for the large quilt include 16 fat quarters, 3 yards of a background fabric, 2 yards border plus backing. The smaller project will require about 6 fat quarters and 2 yards background fabric. More details will come about the fabrics next week.
  • Blocks will be posted here on this blog officially but you will also find reminders and links from our other social channels.

Do you have more questions about the Countdown? Ask below in the comments and come back next week to find out the answer!
