GMAMA'S DAY ON THE THINK CHRISTMAS BLOG-HOP

I'M *THINKING* CHRISTMAS
BUT
I'M NOT *FEELING* CHRISTMAS
TODAY'S TEMPS WILL HAVE A HEAT INDEX OF 105
I nearly melted trying to take pictures outside of my quilt blocks!
Thought I was going to have a Heat Stroke before I got finished.
Summer is just One Big Hot Flash for me anyway..
I'm more of a Fall/Spring kinda gal.
ANYHOO....

******************************************************************************
 Twist
I had seen various blocks with these triangles twisted like so into a circle but I had no pattern to follow 
so...much like most things in my life...I Winged It!!
I cut lots of different sized triangles, sewed them together, cut out a center circle to allow fabric to lie flat (that just worked for me... remember I was making this up as I went!), fused a red square set on point to cover the hole, fused a Christmas tree in the center, embellished with some tiny buttons for lights and squared up the block.  
By The Way, Gmama is NOT a Photographer...just keep that in mind!
My Very First Attempt at FMQ!!!  Can I get a Whoop Whoop!!??

Here's  my Rowdy Block...Rudolph's Twin Brother
Look closely...what did I use?
Crayola Crayons for Crayon Quilting!!
I used Black Thread and a Fine Permanent Black Marker to outline
Rudolph isn't finished ...
If you are interested in knowing how to use this technique (which BTW is great to use with the kiddos or grandpeeps) go to MAMACJT..she is the awesomest at most everything she makes!
I plan to put these 3 Blocks together as a whimsical table-runner for my kitchen table.

I"M NOT FINISHED...
The next group of blocks are part of my 
CHRISTMAS CANDY TABLERUNNER




Peppermint Twist

CHRISTMAS CANDY TABLERUNNER
(or at least as much as I could get in the picture because my dining room table is full of yard sale items for Saturday's fundraiser!

This project was begun last year when I saw the red applique tree on here yesterday and thought I could make a door sized version.  I simply appliqued various red fabric circles and configured them into a tree formation plus Zig-Zaged stitched around each circle.
So there you have it!!
I've been busy!! HAVE YOU??
Thank you Santa Lesley and Madame Samm for all your hard work on the

  35. I am a follower. :-) Thank you for the sharing your wonderful blocks with us-- I especially like the ones that were colored with crayons! That is something that I haven't tried yet, but definitely want to. Coloring was always- and still is- one of my favorite craft activities! :-) I prefer colored lights. They remind me of my childhood-- those twinkling bright colors made everything look so magical at Christmastime! :-) I do use a strand or two of white lights on my tree as well, though. They seem to brighten everything up. :-) Thank you for the chance to win! Stay cool! I'm surely trying to. I've been guzzling tea and lemonade every day! :-) ... and dreaming of Autumn!

  42. I love your circle tree quilt. You could use it as an advent calendar, adding a decoration to the tree over the month of December and then at Christmas it would be really full!! Or stitch a favourite teabag, chocolate etc to it before December and cut one off each day (no cheating!!!)
    Love all your work as usual. Thanks so much for sharing it.

  43. Whoop! Whoop! Great job on your FMQ. Wish I could say the same for mine! Loved your blocks! Great to see more coloring book blocks, too. I did two myself yesterday.

LOL I like the white lights, but love the colored ones! Am a follower.

  137. Hello There from your new follower #452
    I, too love to do Coloring & Embroidery blocks! And now is the time for me to start thinking about doing a couple runners for my daughters as Christmas. I know I have 24 pack of Crayolas hiding around here someplace. LOL.
    I thought your blocks was super cute and that you did a great job with FMQ.
    Okay now for the answer to the question - I truily love the look of the blue lights. They have a much softer effect when they are turned on. Thank you for the wonderful chance to win the CG from the Fat Quarter Shop. If I was to win, I would use it to make gifties fro my children & Grandbabies.
    Sincerely,
    Tricia

    I prefer white Christmas lights, my hubby likes multi colored lights, so we alternate years.

  150. Of course I am a follower. And you most definitely get a Whoop Whoop! Great job on all your Christmas goodies. You were one very busy lady! And for the lights, we changed over to all white lights a number of years ago and have never wanted to go back.

  152. White vs colored lights is always an issue at our house!! We end up compromising and doing colored lights on the tree and white lights outdoors.

  156. Thanks for sharing so many of your wonderful projects. I love your Twist block and your Christmas Candy table runner. I'm sure you and Roger will enjoy his retirement and spend many more happy years together.
    I am a follower. We have 2 trees with lights every year (plus a small unlighted Advent tree). One has colored lights and the other has white lights. Every year I change my mind about which one is my favorite.
