Singing Carols - November

How is everyone getting along with their blocks?

I am wishing a lot that we had started earlier and that my quilt top would be ready for Christmas?  I wonder if you feel the same .... at least we have next year to look forward to it ...

I had a couple of days at a retreat this weekend and got my November block put together....


They really are very sweet pictures and I love the relatively simple blocks to hold them all together...

Happy Stitching everyone.....

Yours is looking really lovely Fiona - I agree, wish we'd started earlier, I'm excited about how they are all coming along!!

Looking very nice. I have just about finished October and about to start November. I have had a slow month due to my husband being in hospital and trying to finish another Christmas quilt.I'm glad I will have this one for next year.

Looking lovely - though it would have been nice to have aimed at Christmas 2016 I suspect a lot of us may not have made it....
