North Pole quiltalong .....

I am sewing along with Val and a bunch of others this fun Christmas quilt....

This is a couple of blocks that I have done this month

This is the Elves Bunkhouse


the bird and a little bell will be sewn on at the end with the trimmings....

which I am calling "House of Elves)
I love the little candycane doorjams....


This next one was the North Pole Carryout... but I have chosen it to be a WINERY

(I'm sure the elves need some mulled wine to help them through the cold weather??????)
looks a bit like the roof has had a few glasses already


I do find it a lot of fun to sew along with friends....... and see the different versions of the blocks being made.... and this quilt is just so quaint and whimsical

Righto, Gotto Go... the Recreation Centre and Icecream Shop are next.....
(I wonder what wine icecream is like?)

Love that bunk house and the little elf in the doorway. How nice to make them a winery. Much better than take out.

Gorgeous, Fiona. I had a chuckle at the wine icecream also. Hmmm. Maybe a new flavour. A clever idea to change the names of the houses.

Susan said...

These blocks are full of fun. Lovely colours and fabrics. Yep, a winery sounds like a great idea. And wine ice-cream is even better!!

you are going great guns with your north pole houses.
they are so bright and cheery. Loving the winery roof, they look like pippi longstocking plaits.
