The last block!!!


I have finally finished my block I and I love this block.
I don't know why, but these 3 lovely ladies look so good and I have enjoyed every minute stitching them.
After Christmas I will sew all blocks together and hopefully I will very soon be able to show you the finished top.
The quilting is coming closer and closer and for me it is not the best part of making a quilt but I am sure I will find a way.
Up till now it has been a very, very cold winter with lots of snow in Denmark.
The landscape looks like a fairytale, very suitable for Christmas.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year hopefully with lots of time for stitching.
