December Blocks - SKOW

I have finished my December blocks.  I am addicted.  This quilt is so much fun to make.  Here are a few split up pictures



 I had to include Canada on my suitcase as that is where I am from and I love it here!  I also want to visit all the other places listed on the suitcase as well!

and one below - the whole row held up by my daughter, Emily

I have finished stitching my January blocks and am just stitching the strips beside!

Hi Lori, well done it looks fabulous. I too am finding this quilt so much fun! It has so many challenges.

I will be adding Canada to my suitcase, it is one of my favourite places.

Cheers . . .
