Comfort and Joy #6

Here we go again.    How do the months go so fast.  Didn't we just post block #5?  

This has been such a fun quilt-a-long.   I really think we may have some finished quilts for the holidays.   Woo Hoo!

Here's Sandy's (no blog) block.  I really like her yellowware bowl.   Sandy has combined cotton and wool on her applique blocks. 

And here's mine.    I'm saying that my bowl is redware.   Tee Hee.    My applique blocks are all wool on a cotton background.   Anyway, I think this block is my favorite.   I got some cute buttons to go on the gingerbread men but will have to wait till after it's been quilted.

This is my progress so far.   This block was the most labor intensive so the rest of the blocks should go quickly.  

Now go take a look at the other bloggers who are madly sewing away on this.  I've been a real nag getting them ready for the post, so hopefully they all got theirs finished for this month's reveal. 

When I was editing the pictures for this post I realized I have lots of pictures to show you, so I really do plan to do some posting.   Really!  (do you believe me?   Haha)

Hugs, Anne

I should take a picture of all my sections together. I enjoy seeing yours in the whole as it is now. I just about forgot that today was post day. I hadn't paid attention to the dates this past week. I squeaked by getting my pieced sections done last evening. I have had the applique ready for several days.

Aughhhhh! That is SO adorable! It has inspired me. Not to actually get off my posterior and do one but to look at it and admire. Can't wait to see it finished!
