Are You Ready?

Hi, all!

Are you ready?  Tomorrow is the start of the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop - 25 fabulous bloggers are going to share some of their favorite Christmas projects and gifts with us to get us in the holiday-making-mood!

But wait....  there's more!

For those twelve days, right here on this blog, I'll be sharing the how-to's for an easy Christmas quilt!  Invest about an hour or so each day for twelve days, and you can have a beautiful quilt to show off for the holidays this year!  Here are some photos of my finished version....

You can find the fabric requirements here, and some alternative color ways depicted here.  I hope you'll join me - it should be fun!!
