Magic of Christmas Block3

Magic of Christmas B&W

FullSizeRender 3 FullSizeRender 4I stitched these blocks on “retreat” without my own sewing machine…let’s just say they turned out “ok”…while I really appreciated the fact that I had a sewing machine in Dallas…it was not mine and it had a totally different foot than what I am used to…so I only made the two blocks there and quit…and worked on hand work…so I’m not tally happy but I’m also not making them over either…

Hope you are liking the blocks so far…remember to post them on instagram #themagicofchristmasquilt

I live on a lake in beautiful Butte Des Morts, WI. I have three sons: Lance (forever 29), Luke 33, Jake 32, and two grand-babies, Little Man and O-Bug. I've been married to the love of my life Nick, since 1998 when we started our crazy adventure together! I am a quilter, rugger, and gardener. I also love to cook when I get the chance. Thanks for visiting and supporting Primitive Gathering Quilt Shop where I try to bring you the best Moda fabrics and wool projects anywhere!

  1. Hi Lisa, my nephew had one of those cars growing up too. I love the bat mobile idea! I can’t believe how big your grandson is getting!! What a cutie!! I spent the day organizing my craft room and managed to find a few missing items. Though I would’ve rather gone to the flea market, I love those and estate sales. I’m hoping to plant some crocus bulbs this weekend in the backyard for next spring. By the way, I think your blocks turned out lovely! Hugs, Jakey

      1. Thank you, Lisa, for these blocks. Life at the lake looks so good, and your grandson is adorable!

  2. Lisa, it is comforting to know that the pros even have a slight miss once in awhile…but I still think your blocks look amazing. Here’s hoping that mine come out close!

  3. Farmer’s Market and Flea Market–that is a great day!
    That Batmoblie is a hoot! Will you make the Batman costume? I guess with the approaching holiday it shouldn’t be hard to buy one.
    Really like the block design–and that 2″ center block would be challenging on an unfamiliar machine.
    I had fun with your Dedication Rose block pattern. Did it in black background with wool applique. I’m bordering it with 1/2″ HSTs and making a little quilt.

  4. Please send me  block # 1  instructions for  “The magic of Christmas”.For some reason – – I never received it.Thank you.~ Judy

  5. I think the diagram for this block is wrong. The triangles marked “G” that go next to the “F” parts should be “C”. I followed the color photo which is correct.

    I’m enjoying making them so far.

    Thanks, Julie Wall

  6. Your grandson is adorable. Love the photo of him and Nick with their color coordinated tshirts.
    Thank-you for the beautiful blocks!

  7. Lisa: I just became aware of your magic of christmas series. I missed block number one and can’t find it anywhere on the back issues of your blog. Could you let me know where I can go to find it? I am really glad I found Primitive Gatherings a couple of years ago and have ordered many wonderful things over the last two years.. love my two pin cushions (never can have enough pin cushions). When I saw the block 2 pattern, I decided the best way to keep up with you is to be on your email list. Since I am facebook, BLOG, Tweet, etc. challenged I don’t know any of the tools but I have discovered the “newsletter” button on BLOGS! Thanks again for sharing your posts, talent, and patterns. melinda vennard

  8. That child is adorable! And your Badgers totally deserved to beat my Tigers A disappointing start to the season for LSU but they lost to a worthy opponent!

  9. Lisa, I didn’t join your blog until after block 1 of The Magic of Christmas. I have blocks 2 and 3. Is there any way you can send me block 1? Your patterns are lovely. Many thanks, Judy.

  10. Thank you for block 3, Lisa. That center star looks tricky…I might have to use some of the triangle papers for this one. Love those! Jace looks cute with his new set of wheels.

  11. Don’t kmow how you keep up with Jace and the blocks and your other projecrs. Keep making the time for Jace, he is just adoreable!!
