Secret Santa

Come on now...who can resist a Secret Santa Sewalong?!?!
You would have to be extraordinarily disciplined quilter with nerves of steal, and absolutely no FOMO.
If you've ever read my blog before, you know that's not me!
Temecula is gifting us another free Christmas project...what's not to love?!? 

I sewed their "Countdown to Christmas" mystery 5 years ago and it's still one of my favourite Christmas quilts. The free pattern is still available on their blog - click here.

SO... I'm digging into Christmasy scraps. The first step uses greens, browns and lights. It's not my favourite colour combination, but I like the block, and reds will be added at another step. And I do really like that these old bits and pieces that have been in the Christmas scrap box for a long time are finally finding their way into a project.

What's on your design wall today? 
Are you joining in the Temecula Christmas mystery?
Linking up to Design Wall Monday over at Small Quilts.

It is hard to find good Christmas greens sometimes, so hoarding scraps sounds completely reasonable. Have fun!

I should resist...but it is futile!!! Printing the instructions!!!

How fun, I am bad at resisting too. I love Christmas and Mysteries and Temecula Quilt Company.

Aren't these cute blocks?
Absolutely digging in my heels to resist this SAL. FOMO--that was new to me. I like that. I guess I will try to fight the FOMO and enjoy watching you create. :)

If it uses up scraps, then it should be except from any new project moratorium. Looks like you've made a good start on it.

Thanks for the link, Kathy. I've signed up to get the weekly clues!
