January Hot Off the Press

Sometimes the time is right and I can strike while the iron is hot so the saying goes.  A little stitching Friday and Saturday night and "deck the halls" is complete.


So happy that I put in the time to prepare all the blocks (except the house block) way back at the beginning of this journey. I don't think I would have kept up otherwise. Friday I layed all the blocks out, pulled out the scrap box and prepared the last house block ... gee there's quite a bit of stitching on this one so I might just make a headstart if I can finish my other January projects first.

So enjoying this quilt and loving how it has come together ... thanks to this group for all your encouragement and lovely comments.
