CQ Glee Club: Christmas Carol Countdown, Day 1

Christmas Tunes from the Curious Quilter Glee ClubI thought it might be fun to count down the days until Christmas comes (and passes) with some fun songs from The Curious Quilter Glee Club’s repertoire. Countdown Day 1 brings us parodies on Jingle Bells and Rudolph. Sing loudly, please, so I can hear you!

If you want to share the tunes with other quilters, please feel free. I do ask that you acknowledge the source, however. Click here to find all the CQ Glee Club offerings (so far.)

Pre-cut strips, two-inch charms, how we love them all!
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.

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!

Tillie, the Red-Thumbed Quilter
Sung to the tune of “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

Christmas Tunes from The Curious Quilter Glee Club - notesTillie, the red-thumbed quilter,
Had a very well pricked thumb.
And if you ever saw it,
You would think it must be numb.

All of the other quilters
Sympathized and gave advice,
Some even talked about her,
Which was never very nice!

Then one fateful Christmas Day
Tillie was heard to say,
“Dearie me, my thumb’s so sore,
“I can’t hand-quilt anymore.”

But all her friends said, “Oh no!
“Tillie you must never stop!”
So they gave Tillie thimbles,
And took her to a fabric shop.

Now tune up your voices for another round of songs tomorrow!
