My December QAL blocks

December and the year are quickly coming to a close.  I'm pleased to share my latest blocks for two mystery QALs.

The first is one sponsored by American Made Brand called My Land.  Block 8 is called Leaves of Change.  

I've downsized my blocks to be 6'' finished and paper pieced this one.  Here are the other 7 blocks.  (It's been too yucky outside to get a group shot.)

I won some fabric in last month's linkup including a cute little charm pack - happy dance!  I immediately opened up and cut into that FQ stack as it had PERFECT colors for the gift I'm making my son for Christmas.  More on that once it is done - busy quilting it now.

Next up with the Meadow Mystery QAL from Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs.   For this mystery QAL, all I had to get started were really excellent directions on which fabric should be light / medium / dark and some advise on what fabrics would sit next to another fabric so you could validate contrast.

I've downsized such that these HST are 2 1/2 '' unfinished.  (The pattern calls for 4 1/2 ''.)   Here are my December blocks.

I love seeing how others are playing with these blocks and the other's we've made to try and guess the final design!

All the Bag It winners have been notified about their prizes.  I'm just waiting for one last person to acknowledge the email and then I'll be share on the blog!

Have a wonderful day! Patty
