The first group of Sweet Kisses blocks have been pieced but they're not all aranged on the display wall. And yes, it's another Christmas quilt but it's not as obvious as the other Christmas quilts I've made recently.
This quilt is utilizing a Christmas charm pack I purchased years ago, I have no idea how many years ago. I did need to supplement the charm pack with fabrics from my stash, no way was I going to buy another charm pack then have some squares leftover.
The background fabrics are from my stash.
There are a lot of little pieces in this quilt and it took a while to get them all cut. The blocks do sew up faster than I thought they would.
Here is a link to the Sweet Kisses pattern. I don't know that you will be able to tell this is a Christmas quilt since the fabrics are cut into such small pieces but it feels good to finally have used that charm pack!

This is a clever way to use Christmas fabrics! I'm so impressed with this!!! Have a great day gretchen!
Great pattern for Christmas narrow strips. Your blocks looks very pretty. Have a nice week Gretchen!
This is a very sweet pattern! I like the scrappiness. ~Jeanne
Very cute pattern. Looks like you are well on your way to a finish. good luck.
Sweet Kisses ... Sweet Indeed!
You're going to have the prettiest Christmas-y house ever with all of these Christmas quilts! I'd be tempted to go with them on point, to match the "x" that is often used to represent a kiss.
A great way to use up a charm pack and I think you are right it would be seen as a Christmas quilt.
Cute quilt blocks! Awesome way to use up that charm pack. The fact that it isn't in your face Christmas means you can keep it out longer! What a win-win. Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.
Gretchen this is going to be such a cute quilt. I love the way you used your stash to "stretch" the charm pack to make your blocks. Thank you for linking with To Do Tuesday.
Love it! Looks like some real scrappy fun here!
Really cute Christmas quilt. Lots of little pieces!
Beautiful quilt in progress. Thanks for sharing the pattern link. Thank you for sharing the love in my quilty linky party today! ... <3 Pat
