It's Day FIVE of the
12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop
I am getting so many ideas for Christmas projects, that it's a good thing this hop is taking place in July. I might actually get some of them done in time for the December Christmas.
Thanks go out to Sarah - Confessions of a Fabric Addict - who has organized this hop. She's keeping everything running smoothly and enticing us with "Christmas Goodies" each day too.
Be sure to leave a comment on each blog you visit because there are some amazing prizes to win.
On top of everything else, Sarah is offering a quilt along. She posts steps each day and by the end of the hop, you'll have completed the top that measures 60" x 60". WooHoo!
I decided to use patriotic fabrics instead of Christmas fabrics. (That decision was made because I had a really big stack of those fabrics out and it just seemed easier to pull some from that, instead of putting them away.) I have all my panels sewn and here's how they look. I think I'm going to like this!
Here are today's Christmas in July Blog Hop participants:

I'm excited to be working with a wonderful Studio E collection - My Happy Place.
I'm loving this fabric and spent some time today fussy cutting a bunch of small squares.
I cut some others and even made a few half square triangles using some Peppered Cottons. I got so excited to play that before I had everything cut, I started to put a block together. This is going to look even better when I have all the fabric cut. 😊
Stay tuned for more pictures. Even though I'm not going to be home until quite late, tomorrow should see a few more blocks made.
