Tis the Season Blocks

I finished piecing the Tis' the Season blocks and they are ready to be put together in the quilt. Here they are:

Here are the fabrics I will be using for the final border and the binding. I have not decided for sure if I am going to do the smaller border yet.

tis the season (12)

I am very pleased with the how the blocks turned out. I did not go with what I wanted to originally use, which was homespuns. My husband helped me out, he is really good at it. We spent a large chunk of Saturday night pulling down fabrics to find the right ones. I hoped to have the top pieced tonight.

I stitched the Wreath block also but I have not decided what I am going to make with it yet.

Thanks Chooky and all of you for being so supportive of everyone in the group and giving us a kick in the bottom when we needed it!

Later - Jennifer
