Comfort and Joy finale....well, almost

November brings us to the point of finishing up the center of the quilt.    The 12th block was a quick and easy one.  

This is Sandy's  (no blog).  As you can see, she added the snowflakes on the left and presents under the tree.  


I pretty much stuck to the pattern but replaced 2 of the nine patch blocks with churn dash blocks.   Again, all the applique is done with wool on cotton.



These are all 12 blocks.  I thought I had taken a picture after they were sewn together, but it looks like you'll have to see that next month....or whenever we all finish up with the borders and applique.  


December might be a challenge for all of us to get this finished but we're sure gonna try.

Go on over and take a look at what the rest of the gang has been doing.

Kim, Karen, Diane and Nadine.  

Hugs, Anne

I love your churn dashes instead of the nine patches. And the gift boxes are adorable!!!
