Tis the Season Blocks

Well, I am feeling better today. I had a rough go of it last week. Thank you for all of your thoughts and comments!! I surely needed them.

I got home from work this morning and decided to go ahead and finished piecing the Tis' the Season quilt blocks for the Stitch-A-Long I am a part of. They are all finished and 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.

I am very pleased with 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 picking out fabrics. We spent a large chunk of Saturday night pulling down fabrics to find the right ones. I hope to have the top pieced tonight!

Off to get some rest before the kids get home. I hope you had a great weekend and found a little stitching time!

Later - Jennifer

Wow Jennifer - the quilt blocks are so cute! I'd like to hear more about the Stitch-A-long you joined..it sounds like fun. Can't wait to see it all pieced together.
