Description

Oh look, another new project when I have like 10 more unfinished ones.  Surprise surprise.  :tongue:

I've had these Joy by Kate Spain charm packs for a while.  I bought it a year or so ago with the intention to make a HST chevron quilt.  Then I decided I didn't like that idea anymore and never came up with anything else to use it for.  Then I saw +thesewingchick's granny square bee blocks and +cabinfibers's Christmas granny square quilt and knew that's what I wanted to do (thanks ladies for the inspiration!).

I sorted out all the white charms (maybe I'll use them on the back) since I'm going to use a white solid as the background fabric.  Then I cut them all into quarters for the 2.5" squares.  The tutorial I'm using is from Blue Elephant Stitches.

I'm not sure when I'll get to this, but hopefully soon.  It'll be nice to have it ready to put out for use in our home by the time Thanksgiving is over.

UPDATE 9/2/13:  I got all my white squares cut today and couldn't resist sewing up a block.  I want to get a few other things done before I devote a ton of time to this, so I am thinking I might just sew up a couple of blocks each week when I need a change of pace with the UFO list I'm working on.

I've just opened up signups for the fall round. I'd love to see your progress working on this quilt.

Love this block. I used to be so "good" and finish one project before starting another one but about a year ago that whole mind set went out the window and I think I have 6 projects all going on at once now. Oh well, at least I continue to enjoy the journey and that is the important part. Can't wait to see this when finished.

I'm going to love seeing this Christmas quilt evolve. What could be better than Kate Spain's Joy and the Granny Square!!

Love the block and the fabric choice.

CabinFibers

You know, that's one of my favorite quilts I've made. It was so much fun going through my stash finding one more of this and that non-Christmas fabric I could make work. Good luck with yours! Love what you've chosen so far, can't wait to see what you come up with!

Oh I love this as a holiday quilt!
