Hi guys! Welcome to the last block in the Christmas in July Block-a-thon! Woohoo, you made it! Have you been sewing along with us all month long? I’m loving the blocks I see here.
Our It’s Sew Emma block called Cheer is on the Free Spirit blog today. Next Monday, they will post the final quilt reveal! We haven’t seen it either and are so anxious to see it all done!
The fabrics we were sent for Cheer are from Heather Bailey’s Fresh Cut, plus the green and white solids. I love me some Heather Bailey and went at it with gusto. This block reminds me of a quaint table setting – don’t ask me why, it just does! Artistic license and all that!
I think this block would be awesome in some non-christmas fabrics too – I'm feeling Marmalade!
I love the Wrenly Christmas line from Valori Wells!
I'm thinking fall colors such as pumpkin, rust and greens.
It could be really cool in black and whites with a pop of one color.
You know Sandy Gervais has some great fabrics that would work well with this pattern. Edna V.
I will be using some of the Moda Blitzen range hopefully later today to make this block 🙂 I love stars so this looks a fab block to me! 🙂
I would love this in Hoffman's 'Juniper Holiday Serenade'
I think it would look very happy in the Birds and Berries fabrics. Thanks, love the design of this block!
Valorie Wells Cocoon.
Thanks for the tutorial, I love it!
I would love this in Vintage Modern fabrics.Thanks for sharing the pattern!!
I think Wildwood collection would be really cute with this pattern
I love Kate Spain's Christmas lines and think this block would be cute in fabrics from "Joy". Thanks for the chance to win!
I think something by Kate Spain – Flurry or Joy!
I think I would use Blitzen or Joy but it would also be great in fun colors like Marmalade!
I would do it in Blitzen.
Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley! still one of my favourite lines! I'm trying to collect them all!!
I just bought some Blitzen fat quarters that I will use.
I would love it in Vintage Modern (I'm having so much fun with the Mystery BOM with this line)
Love playing with Blitzen … I think it would lovely in this pattern!
I am thinking Blitzen too, although the idea of non traditional Christmas fabric would be fun…
I can see the sweet little table with 2 star chairs – if it wasn't cold and snowy out (Christmas, you know!), I'd picture it out on my patio. lol
I think I'd make this block in all solids and include white and black.
I think this already awesome block would be even more awesome in Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee!
I would use Amy Butler's Spots that is coming soon. That is going be a great line!
Of all the blocks I saw on the flickr group I really loved this one! Very clever!
I think I'd use some Pezzy Prints!
I'd like to use Serenade by Kate Spain.

Just saw Cosmo Cricket Christmas line- looks interesting
What a beautiful block. I would love to see this made using Hunter Holiday Serenade from Hoffman. I think it would make a beautiful table runner with those fabrics and this block as the center.
I would use Hoffman's Alpine Holiday. Thanks for the block.
I'm totally liking any of Kate Spain's fabrics in this block!
The Pagoda is beautiful….
combined with some solids.
Great pattern !
What a neat block! I can see the table setting as well. hehe. I think this would look great in Joy or really, anything Kate Spain. I think Couquette would also be great.

I would try it in some Verona that I have.
How about some 1930s prints — scrappy— for the star, muslin for the background, and poison green for the rectangle? I'm so loving all the 30's prints right now, that I see them in every pattern I look at! 🙂 Thanks so much for the giveaway!
This would be great in Bella solids with starry and swirly quilting on it!
I would use some solids to make Cheer and focus more on the quilting 🙂
Flea market fancy:)
I like citrus madrona road
Chambray Rose Collection Collection Yardage

Lovely lovely!! I think I would put it with a linen/cotton mix in a natural colour – it looks so soft and calm. Yum!!
I've got some Vintage Modern here and I can just see it in that so I'd use it happily.
Oh, it would have to be either Kate Spain's holiday fabrics (Flurry or Joy), or Winterkist by Monica Solorio-Snow. Heck I'd probably make 3 quilts and use one line for each! 🙂
Oh, I adore that block! In sticking with Christmas, I'd probably use Joy, but it would look great in anything!
Would love to win one of the interesting looking Indie Fat Qtr. bundles.
I believe Merry Medley by Sandy G. would be a great choice for the Cheer block.
definately something Kate Spain. Thanks for a chance to win – laurie

Not sure why, but looking at it the first thing that came to mind was a little quilted sitting matt for my daughter to use when she opens her presents from Santa!
I would love to use black white and a bright green.
If I won one of these bundles I'd make a sweet baby quilt to give to a cancer patient at one of the Hope Lodges.

Vickie in the far corner of the NW
Is it just me…but Cheer reminds me of sunflowers! Definitely would use gold, browns and indigo with cobalt blues and then embroidery seed packets in the center….for a non-Christmas quilt. But for Christmas…lime, aqua, purples, silver….I love non traditional colors at christmas!
