North Pole QuiltAlong


.... earlier this month I was working on some blocks for my North Pole Christmas quilt....

Val is hosting a quiltalong for this and I am trying to work according to her suggested plan...

there are 7 of us altogether making this... you can join too!!!

Mr & Mrs Clause's house
as you can see I'm doing a bit of mixed fabrics, there are cottons, trims, wool felt for the trees and some fussy cutting (door and little tree)

Trees and Reindeer

I will finish off the tree with a button star and some 'real' wood antlers for the reindeer at the end.... 



Righto, Gotto Go... got the Elves bunkhouse and the 'carryout' to make next 

(I'm tossing between 'takeaway' or 'BottleO'.... what do you think?)

Val has a linky HERE so can always pop along and see what others are doing - I just LLLLOOOOVVVE Val's block...

PS.... Rellies are here, rain has stopped, rivers are going down, sun is out,  ....
