Summer Friendship and Christmas blocks

A few more Christmas blocks for our guild's Festival of Trees quilt.

Blocks 79 and 76
Again, I chose blocks from Tula Pink's 100 Modern Quilt Blocks book.  The fabrics are all Moda 25th and Pine.

Season's Greetings
  This book has been perfect for this project as the block requirements are 6.5", same as the block instructions.  Above is Block 79; below is Block 76.

Holly Square
 It feels good to be caught up with my bee blocks well before mid-month!

100th post Friendship mini quilt
 Wish Circle of do. Good Stitches is collecting Friendship Star blocks for August using this tutorial.  Great blocks!  Reminds me of a mini quilt I made way back to celebrate my 100th post (I'm sharing the photo above because I'm not sure about the link) ;-))

Mary's our MCM Queen Bee this month and has requested HST blocks to make a quilt similar to this one.  My bee mates have the best quilt ideas!

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching,


  1. How refreshing to see these Christmas blocks! Makes me want to start on projects for the holiday season. Fun to see all your bee blocks lately.

  2. I have been wanting to make the 100 blocks--perhaps using my Christmas stash would be a good idea. I really like your blocks.
