patchwork quilt along - final month

It's the final month of the Patchwork Quilt Along! And I'm a little sad to see it end. I've had so much fun watching the stack of blocks grow each month. I've kept a log of how many times I've used each color to make sure that I have a fairly even distribution (for the record, that's 14 pink blocks, 12 grey blocks, 12 blue blocks, 10 green blocks, 10 yellow blocks, 8 purple blocks, 6 red blocks).  My blocks are all made with Brenda Riddle's Fleurs fabric. This month's blocks feature my kind of Christmas colors - traditional red and green, mixed with pink and silvery grey.

Quick, easy blocks again this month. That leaves more time for Christmas decorating and cookie baking!

The final block pattern is now posted on Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber blog, along with the quilt assembly instructions. I'll put my quilt top together in January (I have a few red and green projects in the works this month!) To recap this quilt along: visit Fat Quarter Shop's blog here to download your block pattern. Please consider making a donation to Make A Wish of $5 for the use of the pattern (we've raised over $12,000!). And enjoy your quilt! Thanks for following along with me as I made these blocks throughout 2017. Now what's next?!
