Christmas QAL

Last month I started a quilt-a-long – another one! This is just a short free one from the Fat Quarter Shop. It’s called All the Trimmings. It appealed partly because I’m a sucker for Christmas stuff, but also because it just uses one layer cake with the background fabric, I knew I had a Christmas layer cake I’d bought off facebook a couple of years ago.

The first row was holly and berries…

As you’ve probably gathered it’s a little row by row quilt. The patterns were released each week but as I’m a bit behind I can now see all the other rows!

The second row is Christmas stockings…

I’m now half way through the third row which is proving to require a bit more concentration than the first two. The instructions are all on the Fat Quarter website and there’s youTube videos too. I’m enjoying this quilt-a-long, the instructions are nice and clear and it’s pretty straight forward. Just having four of each pattern to make does mean it doesn’t get monotonous or time consuming!

Hopefully I’ll soon have rows three and four to share.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
