Christmas In July Started!

And, it started without me.  So sorry gang.  Here's the scoop! 

The wonderful Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict started her blog hop yesterday.  First there are two great bloggers who are giving us some quilty ideas. Sarah has a tutorial for a great Christmas quilt.  But wait, change up the colors on the quilt and have a quilt for any time, season or reason you want.  I'll be spending some time today seeing if I can pull a quilt out of my stash.  I want to make a Christmas one to donate to my favorite singing ensemble to use as a fund raiser. Hum....

Yesterday's bloggers shared some great ideas.  Joy from Days Filled with Joy shared some small pouches.  I've actually made something like them to use as gift bags.  (Mine were a bit bigger. Because we recycle ours they are a great way of cutting down on the trash during present opening.)  Our other blogger is Selina from Selina Quilts.  She has a multitude of ways to use tumbler units.  I particularly like the wreath idea.  (OH NO -- I do not need to get new ideas of things to do!) 

Today we have two more bloggers sharing their brilliant ideas. Joanne from Everyone Deserves a Quilt has some great ideas of how to use quilts, fabric or blocks as pictures. Wowzer! I've always wondered how to display a quilt (or block or fabric) on a canvas.  Joanne has wonderful directions and it makes me want to try it.  Jan from the Colorful Fabricholic has the cutest Christmas Tree pot holders.  Or just make the tree blocks into a quilt. Lots of fun things going on.

I'm hustling off to get a quilt finished for a customer today and then I still need to finish my project.  It's not big but it is fun.  And, did I mention GIVEAWAYS?  Many of the participants are giving something away to one (sometimes more) happy readers.  I'm giving away a matched set of a see through fabric pouch and a collapsable thread catcher.  (Pictures will be shared eventually!) 

I'm linking up with Oh Scrap! Take a look at what is happening around the Internet.

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie
