Completed Blocks!!!

Somewhat late really .... but here are some of my first completed blocks!  I have finally got around to stitching the borders on to them!    Watch this space .... there will be more coming in the next little while!     I have been very inspired by all of the posts showing what amazing work you are all doing!  And also having seen a couple of finished Tis The Season quilts at the Craft Show spurred me along too!!



All my stitching has been worked in 2 strands of the variegated red DMC thread which I quite like using!


And I'm using a bit of a variety of fabrics!


Not sure about the checks - but not to worry!
