A Christmastime Quilt and Stitch Along are Coming Soon…

Update 8/1/2022

We were hoping for a Christmas in July, but Santa has been delayed! It looks like September is the month we’ll get started on the Christmastime Quilt Along and Stitch Along. As soon as the fabric elves deliver, we’ll announce the dates, so stay tuned!

Do you hear what I hear? Sleigh bells are jingling and, for us, Christmastime is here. We’re bringing you Christmas in July with another FREE quilt and cross stitch pattern and video series, the Christmastime Mystery Quilt and Stitch Along, to get in the holiday spirit.

The first block of the Christmastime quilt along

The quilt finishes at 23.5″ x 27.5″ and we are sewing ours using Christmas Stitched by Fig Tree for Moda Fabrics. If you want to sew a very merry version like ours, you can reserve your Christmastime Mystery Sew Along Quilt Kit now, which includes fabric for the top, binding, and pieced backing!

The first release of the Christmastime stitch along

The Christmastime Mystery Cross Stitch measures 105w x 95h, finishing at 7.5” x 6.875” when stitched on 14 count Aida! If you want to use a different cloth, try using our free Cross Stitch Calculator to find the size you need.

    1. Hi Alicia that is all dependent on supply chain issues and when fabrics get to us. We are doing everything we can to get things to you quickly.

      You can sign up to be notified when they are in stock and if you’ve ordered one then you can always check your account to see if it has shipped.

      Keep an eye out for the kick-off post. It will include updates and we will do our best to make sure everyone has a chance to get their supplies before everything starts! Hope this helps.

  5. I am interested in the stitch along for boo and christmastime but I am not on instagram. Is there another way to get the free charts
    If I have to I will try to get instagram on my phone.
    Please let me know.


    1. Hi Sharon!

      The free patterns will be shared here on the blog. The Instagram posts are for people who want to share that they are planning to participate. You do not need social media to stitch or sew along! Everyone will get access to the patterns as they release in a blog post coming soon.

      Just make sure you are subscribed to the blog or check back in regularly and look out for the official Boo Crew and Christmastime posts (this one is just an announcement that it’s coming soon).

      We are excited that you’ll be stitching along!
