I’ll be Home for Christmas

Posted on: November 10th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

I have thought of making a block like this for some time now…..

Cute little cars with Christmas trees being toted home…

But when I shared about Passport to Quilting Holiday Edition

I was totally sucked over to the North Pole and went straight to the Elves’ Workshop.

I began working on a couple of table runners using my Holly Jolly Christmas Collection…

Winter Mittens and Cardinal in the Pines. Then I got working on some little cars and made them into a table runner too. But I wanted to make MORE!

Along with the table runner, I also made 2 quilted cushion covers with hidden zipper backs.

If you’re a fan of:

  • Quilting Tutorials and Patterns
  • Fun and Simple Sewing Projects
  • and meeting several inspirational Quilt Designers…

…then this Passport to Quilting major event is FOR YOU!

The best part is, this 5-day event is totally free. We are an amazing group of Quilting and Sewing Designers, and can’t wait to share some really amazing patterns and projects with you!  And as a bonus, I am contributing my Holly Jolly Christmas Collection!  Yahoo!!!

Passport to Quilting begins today…

This is the BIGGEST event of the year!!
