Countdown to Christmas QAL

by Julie Hirt

As soon as I saw Janice at Better Off Thread announce the Countdown to Christmas quilt along, I was in.  I had been wanting to make the advent calendar since the first time I saw it.

My Riley Blake charms arrived today, so I matched them up with some solids from my stash and I’m ready to go.



Here is the calendar – those are little pockets!


You can find the pattern here.




Since the kids in this house are teens, I’ll probably give it to my brother and his family since they have 3 little ones.  Have a great weekend!

  1. I love this! How do I join up to the QAL? I haven’t done one before. Is it too late?
    ps … I did a little “what we did this summer” post to get me going again and added a little giveaway at the end. Hop on over. Have a beautiful weekend Julie.

  2. Ok. I feel like this is something I should know but what do you put in the pockets?

  3. yes, it looks like a fun one, have to post my pics tonite. i’m making 3 for nephew and nieces families, the kids are little so its a good time to start traditions. see ya there.
