Want to Join Me?

I discovered the Countdown To Christmas BOM on the Moda Bake Shop too late for 2018.
I love the idea and loved the blocks so I approached some friends to see if they would be interested to do this with me by making 2-3 blocks per month. 
We could have our quilt done by Christmas 2019.  
They said YES!  
So we are choosing fabric and starting to make our blocks.  
You can find the blocks on the Moda Bake Shop website.  

You can find the start of the blocks here.  
I am making mine in aquas and whites.  

Here are the first two blocks.  

I did not have any trouble with this block.  It was pretty straight forward.

You can find block 2 here.  This block was a little challenging.  There are Y seams involved.

We are using the #mamasparkCTCsewalong on social media, if you want to post your blocks.

I would LOVE to have you join in the fun!

There are 6" and 12" blocks in the patterns.
I am making the 12" blocks for now.
I will probably want to add a few more to make the quilt larger.
There was a CDTC 2017 that has some cute blocks so I may be adding some of those too.

I hope you can join us. 
Wouldn't it be fun to have a quilt for yourself or a friend by Christmas this year?
If you sew along with us you should be able to do that!

I will set up a link up and you can post your blocks in that next month.

I saved all the blocks as they were posted, and I would love to join you. I’ve been wanting to do something with my blues and greens, so maybe I’ll start there. Great idea.

Could you please provide a link to CDTC 2017? I googled it and came up with dog training clubs and trucking companies. LOL Need help please.

Judy the patterns can be found on the Moda Bake Shop website. If you go there and use the search for count down to Christmas 2017 you should find the blocks. You will need to scroll to Dec 1 but they are all there. Here is the link to the first one.

As a side note, I find it is actually easier to search their website as then all the blocks come up.

Hello fellow Countdown People, I found the blocks under the tab for Index.. and I am doing a combination of 2017 and 2018 for a nice large quilt for a September wedding. It is going to be a scrappy Christmas. Nice to know that others want to still do this project.
