Winter is Coming...

Well, actually, the Winter Solstice quilt blocks are coming...along...  Paulette from Sweet P Quilting and Creations is hosting a Sew-A-Long for this cute quilt from Country Threads. I'm going to miss them. They are closing their shop after many, many years. So back to our little quilts, this month we were tasked with finishing the small houses and the star blocks from the quilt. Here are my houses:
and here are my stars:
I can't wait to see what everyone else has done with their blocks. Last month we finished the barns:
Here's the quilt. I bet we do trees next month but Paulette hasn't put up her blog post yet. You can see the links to everyone's blocks at Paulette's blog HERE.

I love the little sheep. I've been wanting to use some of my homespun fabrics and this is the perfect quilt to do that. Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend! XO and cheery wave from Bev

Sorry Bev, I slept in! Your blocks look fantastic! Don't you LOVE this quilt!! Your 'dark':o)) colours are wonderful! So next months we are working on the rest of the quilt and saving the border for October...or if that is too much you can team the lambs with the border. This will give us plenty of time to get 'er done! My sewing room looks like the Homespun bin exploded!! I will be pulling out the greens and brown homespuns next and working on trees...look out sewing room! KERRRPOW!! More homespuns added to the mess!!! You take care and Happy Stitching!! This quilt is going to be one of your all time favourites...I'm sure of it!! :o))
