Time to check in

We’re 2/5ths of the way through the Christmas Cactus Quilt Along, and I’m curious how everyone’s doing. I know Mary at Needled Mom is keeping right up – how ’bout you? If you want to see what the blocks look like so far, check out the Patterns page (scroll down a bit). Each day I add the new block, and the layout on the page is the same as the quilt will be.

For inspiration, here are some more colorways (I love EQ7!!!). We have a thistle and a desert cactus:

… and Blush and Fire Dragons (thank you aviva_hadas on Flickr for the dragon idea!).

  1. I’ve finished cutting all pieces and I’ve pieced the first two blocks. I hope to catch up tomorrow, since it is my first day off in a couple of weeks.

  2. Hi there! I’m saving every PDF but haven’t started the quilt; am hoping to start it after the holiday sewing has finished. I have a recipient already too; this one is just perfect for my little sister!
