Want more Christmas Countdown?

This is the fifth year of the Christmas Countdown. The previous years were all made with 4″ blocks. Each year made a quilt, but for the most adventurous of quilters, all four years can be combined into the 100 Block Christmas Quilt.

I cannot find Block 3 on your Pinterest site so I can save it to my pinterest. I looked everywhere, tried MANY different headings – nothing

Hi Geri, Please feel free to use the block images from the post for block 3 to pin. All of the images are pinnable. Thanks, Betsey
