Christmas is Coming {Jingle Blocks}

Since I have my Island Batik Ambassador project done for the month (but make sure to enter the giveaway!) I decided that I should try to make a push on some of my WIPs before the end of the year.

I also need to work on my scrap and stash organization, so I pulled out the bag of leftover fabrics from my April Showers quilt, and pulled out all of the green and red fabrics to use in some Jingle Bell Square blocks

This project has kind of been a boom and bust project -- I work on it until I run out of background fabric scraps and then put it away until I find or buy something else to add into the quilt for background. This time around, I was able to easily make six blocks from my April Showers scraps.

I was able to make four red blocks and two green blocks; these blocks are mostly the April Showers fabrics with a few others mixed in.

I even mixed in a few of my long-horded Amanda Murphy Christmas fabrics! I am working on a secret sewing project with these fabrics (coming soon!) so I have set aside the scraps to add into my Jingle Bell Square blocks. 

But again, I have reached the end of the line with my background scraps! I did, however, manage to sew together quite a few sets of side strip pieced units and corner QSTs for the next batch of blocks.

I now have 17 more blocks to go -- I'll need to make seven more red blocks and ten more green blocks.

Happy Wednesday -- what are you sewing this week?

Make sure to enter to win some beautiful fabrics from Island Batik in my giveaway!

  1. I can't wait to see these together in a quilt and how you're going to set them!
