Blue Holidays Quilt-Along Day 2

Blue Holidays Quilt-Along Day 2

Walking in a Winter Wonderland...
Sew a wintry lap quilt in gorgeous blue and silver holiday prints!

We'll be spending the next two weeks sharing the Blue Holidays Quilt-Along with you! This cozy lap quilt features our wintry Blue Holidays collection--perfect to use all winter long! 

Follow along as we reveal the quilt row by row and make it yourself to snuggle under all winter long. The finished quilt measures 60" x 68" and features five different pieced blocks. 

Today we're sharing the tutorial for the Ornament Block. You'll need to make six of these blocks--feel free to experiment on the piecing to make more intricate ornaments. We'll talk block row assembly on Day 6.
