My next (and probably last) UFO giveaway is pictured above.
This fabric collection is called Yuletide Blessings. The only Christmassy collection Fig Tree has done for Moda. I made 68 blocks for a quilt called Fall Frolic in the Evelyn Sloppy book 40 Fabulous Quick Cut Quilts. It is one of those patterns that call out for a simple all over quilting design. It could be super cute.
I do not know what happened here with these blocks that caused me to stop construction. The fabric is great, I have a ton of blocks---who knows? For whatever reason I lost the love.
Nevertheless, these blocks will make up into a good sized holiday quilt for someone out there in Blogland, who would like to make them into a quilt. If you think that could be you, leave a comment here and I will announce the winner on Thursday.
I just have to say, I am a bit distracted as I write this. My son is home for Christmas break, and his long time "pen pal" from Ireland has come out for a visit to get to know him in person, so to speak. She is lovely. Just lovely. And he is so happy. I have the next three days to get to know her better, and must say, I am really liking what I see. She brought me a gift. A gorgeous Waterford bowl that she had to hand carry all the way from Galway, on the air plane, and all over San Francisco, until she was able to present it to me this evening. Oh my goodness. I love it. What a thoughtful, amazing present. I will fill it with something suitable and take a picture of it to share.
I made the right decision to put the family Christmas quilt on the bed in the guest room. Yes I did.
