The CQ Glee Club Holiday Tunes

Christmas Tunes from the Curious Quilter Glee ClubWarm up your voices, all ye quilters!

Time for some holiday fun with The Curious Quilter Glee Club. This is a glee club for all quilters and their friends. You can sing off-key, you can sing quietly or loudly, you can sing in any language. You can sing alone, or with friends. You just gotta join the fun and sing!

Last year we started the CQ Christmas Carol Collection with The Twelve Gifts Unfinished, Tillie the Red Thumbed Quilter, Let Me Sew, and Christmas is Over. We digressed into a poetic rewrite of T’was the Night Before Christmas with The Mad Quilter’s Ball. Those just might be hard to beat, but we shall try! Apologies to the holiday music purists, we are just out to have a little fun.

Sung to the tune of Jingle Bells.

Pre-cut strips, two-inch charms, how we love them all!
Oh what fun it is to piece a quilt that’s large or small.
Large-scale prints, stripes and dots, calicoes for fall,
When we play with needle and thread we always have a ball.

Dashing through our stash, on a search for something blue,
Can’t find the right shade, must need something new!
To the shop we flash, for the perfect blue.
Some batiks and novelties will come home with us too!

Sung to the tune of Oh Come All Ye Faithful.

Oh come, all ye quilters,
Time for motivation!
Oh come ye, oh come ye to The Big Quilt Show.
Come and behold them, all the glorious fabrics.
Oh come see mitered borders,
And perfectly matched corners,
Admire some applique at
The Big Quilt Show.

Oh, there’s the winning quilt,
What an inspiration!
I am glad I came to see The Big Quilt Show.
Look at that landscape quilt! See the one with beadwork?
I see some tiny hexagons,
And wonderful hand-quilting!
Perhaps one year my quilt will win
The Big Quilt Show.

More Christmas Tunes from The Curious Quilter Glee Club - notesWe Wish You a Merry Christmas
Sung to the tune of We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

We wish you a Merry Christmas,
But here we are at an impasse.
Is quilt-making in the forecast
For a Happy New Year?

We don’t want figgy pudding,
Just one thing will make our hearts sing.
Some nice time to spend on quilting
Will bring us good cheer!

Good tidings to you, wherever you be.
Good tidings, and time for quilting,
In a Happy New Year!
