Posted on: January 4th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

Happy New Year and…..
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!

You might think Christmas is over and it’s a whole 12 months before it will be making it’s way back again. But around here…. You’ll be seeing a LOT of Christmas themed blocks. Because the new quilt along for 2017 is “Have a Jolly Little Christmas”. I’ll be sharing all the details in a blog post next Friday. The “Have a Jolly Little Christmas” quilt along will begin on January 14th.

In the meantime, if you are interested, you can check out the new quilt along page here or by clicking on the Quilt Alongs page tab found just below the blog header.

  14. Karen says:

    Well, these QAL blocks couldn't be any cuter! Now the question will be how to make choices. Thank you for such a great opener for 2017!

  16. Kathy says:

    How fun! Looking forward to it!

  17. Lorna, everyone doing the QAL is going to be soooo prepared come next December! Good idea getting it underway without the holiday rush : )

  18. DebbieM says:

    I'm going to join in on the Jolly Christmas Quilt-A-Long, this is only my second time doing this, there are some blocks I want and others that I don't want to do. I'm not sure how to show what I did on Twitter, not very familiar with that and that Hashtag stuff. So, you'll probably never see what I've done unless you go to my blog at Can't wait to get started!!! Happy New Year!!

  19. Elise Lea says:

    Love the Santa Block Lorna! It is so cute I can't wait to see everyone's versions as they sew along with you. 🙂

  20. I'm making a plan to play along with this QAL. Another great pattern!

  21. Sewmotion says:
