Christmas Traditions Advent Calendar

It's Christmas in July!!!  

And I am so excited to share with you my newest Moda Bake Shop Tutorial!!    It's the Christmas Traditions Advent Calendar.  I just love this concept of keeping track of your Christmas Traditions.  We wrote it out on a calendar last year but that wasn't very cute.  So this year I knew I had to turn it into a quilted wall hanging!!  And I am just thrilled with the outcome!!!  And if you are as thrilled as I am, you can always pop on over to the tutorial and leave me some comment love.  ( tee hee, hee or should I say Ho, Ho, Ho :)

Each day from Dec 1st to the 24th, you will find a little scroll tucked underneath the flap (or you can do a pocket if you prefer, there are instructions for both) .  Each morning Mom, Dad, or one of the kids get to pull out the scroll and find out what Christmas Tradition we will do that day.  Some are big, (like seeing the lights, building a snowman, or going caroling) and some are small, (like reading a Christmas story, having hot chocolate with marshmallows, or singing our favorite Christmas songs together.) But most importantly, we don't miss out on any of our favorite Christmas Traditions and we keep the holiday spirit in our home all month long :)

So could your family use a  Christmas Traditions Advent Calendar to help you keep track of all your holiday going's on??  Well great, just pop on over to Burgundy Buttons where Leah has worked up an adorable Christmas Traditions Advent Calendar Quilt Kit just for you :)  And as always, at great Burgundy Buttons prices.  Hurry, supplies are limited!!

I just love Christmas!!!!   I had so much fun putting together this little Christmas Calendar and I hope you love it just as much as I do.  More importantly,  I hope this little project tutorial will help many of you out there to keep the Christmas Spirit in your home.  

I will finish this post with a bit of a close-up.  Don't you just love that adorable applique!!!  My kids favorite are the gingerbread men :)  Have a very Merry Quilting Day!!!
