December Quilt Wrap Up

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

It has finally snowed here in Minnesota and the Christmas lights outside looks so pretty. I'm late with posting... again I am feeling like Lucy at the candy factory. There are days that I can certainly use an assistant! or arms like an octopus! I have received many emails on the 'December' blocks for the quilt. There are no planned December blocks. What is written on the layout for December are long rectangle sections on the quilt. Here is what my thought was at the time.... I left these spaces for you if you want to personalize your 'Favorite Things' quilt. You can embroider in these areas a favorite quote. You can embroider words you live by.... special quilting can be done in these areas. Whatever your heart desires. I left these areas plain on my quilt. I had thought of appliqueing some flowers in this section, repeating some sections from my quilt block, but then I decided not to. So I left December pretty 'free' so that you can have time to piece your quilt together and quilt it if you want to have it done for a Christmas gift.

This month's prize is a copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol. 12 magazine. I'm pretty thrilled about it, I've been published!
This month's winner is;
Cindy Repasky!!!
(Cindy please email me your address so I
can send out your magazine)

Cindy's quilt top so far.... love the fabrics....

 Please continue to post your finished blocks and quilt tops to the Quilt Doodle BOM flickr group.  You can post any pictures of past blocks if you are playing catch up. You can also post pictures if you are working on the square in a square blocks that surround each month's blocks. The directions can be found on Craftsy and also my website for free. (Links are below)

If you missed any of the blocks they can be found in my Etsy store for a small fee.
A printable supply list can be found HERE!

Cutting instructions and quilt construction for the quilt can be found HERE!

There will be a blog hop in January to show off our quilts. (They don't have to be quilted to show them off) Please email me your blog url, name, blog name if you would like to participate in the January blog hop.
Let's have some quilty fun!
Happy quilting,
