I'm in....I would prefer the lap quilt to a wall hanging also. Will you be including instructions for both?
When do we start?

Everybody, I have been deliberately vague. I don't want to spoil it.

I will give you all the yardages and numbers of different fabrics. Since people are expressing an interest in a lap quilt over the wall hanging, I have to recalculate it and the quilt program does that.

I'll have to enlarge it a bit. I can do that with no problem, just can't do it right now.

I would rate this project intermediate because there are a few applique pieces (optional if you put them on) and foundation pieced pieces.

I'll provide the templates. I think I can actually post them in here and you can download them and print them when we get to that part. If I can't post them here, I'll e-mail them to everyone and you can print them.

Terri, Santas and Snowmen are kind of out of character ... But, you don't need to buy the fabrics I posted. You can "glitter" up fabrics. I tend to go into "overkill" mode with the Christmas fabrics and ALWAYS select the most BLING. I like glitz.

If anyone has an embroidery machine, for the outdoorsy version, if anyone has snowflake embroidery patterns, with silver or white thread, they'd look really cool.

I'll get you the total number of fabrics and yardage tomorrow or Tuesday. I've got a big job tomorrow and don't know if I'll be able to get on line tomorrow.

There's no comittment here. I'll post all the infor and you can follow along and decide if it's something you want to make. I'm going to have a couple more options along the way to choose from to keep it interesting.

Also, I'll post pictures and diagrams as we go along IF you want me to. Let me know and I'll do it. If some directions need a picture, I'll post it.

When do we start?
Let me just lay out a plan.

If this could be sort of a weekender thing, that'd be good.

Since I'm going to rough over the calculations to change it to a lap quilt, can we start next weekend?

I'll keep posting fabric images and suggestions for you and will be giving yardages throughout the week.

Everyone is welcome to follow along and this design is totally for everyone who wants it. There's no copyright issue because it's my "Merry Christmas" to everyone.

Looking forward to my fabric requirements.
May have to raid someone else's stash!

Everybody, I've had a minute to drop in.

I'm posting some other fabric samples that you'll need. Check your stash and see what you've got!

GOLD! Does anyone have gold? Glitzy gold?

You'll need at least a half a yard of glitzy gold. But, if you don't have it, mix and match with other golds, yellows. It doesn't all have to be the same fabric.

This is for both "wintery" option and the traditional option. OOOPS! Gold for traditional, silver for winter option. I posted a couple silver options for the winter version.

Sorry for the confusion.

Avoid florals. Try to use something like the picture. The picture is a Robert Kaufman fabric.

Be prepared to spray on some glitter spray! I use it all the time and turn ordinary fabric into holiday sparkle.

Now it's time to talk prints.

This is the print I'm going to use from "In The Beginning" Wintergraphix collection.

Regardless of your choice, you'll need a Christmas floral. (and I'll tell you how much tomorrow night.)

Just samples/ideas/options.

Blues for outdoors wintery style, reds/greens for traditional.

Can I ask a couple of questions please, The silver and blue pointsetta fabric, who makes it? Found all the others on a site, but canīt see this one.

Also will this last 6 months or longer? I am kinda thinking it is 6 months but just checking. Will there be 1 or 2 blocks a month?

Thanks Elle
