Sneak Peek: Christmas in July Block-A-Thon

Happy Saturday! Today we’re taking a breather from our regular Jolly Jabber updates to show you a little something to look forward to this summer. Last year, Quilt Dad started Blockapalooza, a sampler block quilt fest of the modern variety. This year, Block-A-Thon is holding the same concept but rocking Christmas! And we get to be a part of it this year, woohoo!

Christmas in July Block-A-Thon is a fun, free quilt-along with some amazing bloggers on the roster, like Kim’s Crafty ApplePat SloanPamKittyMorningQuilting Gallery, well you get the idea.

FreeSpirit sent us each different fabrics to work with, and we’re seeing some incredibly creative blocks being fashioned out of it! The rest is hush hush for now, but we’re really itching to see how the whole quilt comes together! Just to give you a little taste of what we got to work with…

The Block-A-Thon starts in July, so start “blocking” out some time in your schedule to quilt with us!


  1. I'm really looking forward to it. I'm guessing we'll be seeing lots of new Christmas lines in the blocks. What is that tan, white, red in your pic? Oh and thank you so much for all your market posting. I wish all the manufacturers would have a contest through the year so that a few of us out here who are not in any business can attend sometime. We're obviously drooling and wishing on a star everytime we see the pictures.

  2. I've participated in anything like this as I'm a fairly new and fickle quilter! LOL! What do we need to have on hand to be ready? Have a great Memorial Day weekend and stay safe!
