Christmas Blocks Progress

This week started out with me having to go to the dentist for a root canal. It wasn't as painful as I had remembered. I am still recovering from the discomfort and busy with other responsibilities. As I posted my ALYOF goal, I got really motivated to put my Christmas blocks together. I laid out the blocks and worked to determine the color choices for the sashing. In the end I felt white was the best way to go. I have since completed the quilt top and now deciding on the piecing for the backing. I will share my progress as I go along, but for now this is a photo of the blocks sewn onto the sashing. 


I hope those of you going through the polar vortex is warm, safe and sound.
