More Red and Other Colors!

Feeling a little better today, so I hiked up the stairs to my sewing room with determination.
I finished my Poinsettia block for the "Have a Jolly Little Christmas" quilt along.

Then I grabbed all things using the STOP method and got busy on those. If I jump back and forth between stitches, I have been known to have to do a whole bunch of unpicking.
So, I almost finished the candles for the same quilt.

 We will not discuss the fact that I drew some of my diagonals backwards and still had to do some unpicking.
There is also another rainbow block going on there and I did get all the parts ready to put together for another kitty.
So, not a bad day.
This sicky must go back to work tomorrow, and work through Saturday, so hopefully I fit in a few minutes here and there to keep the flow going.
Hope everyone is having a creative day!!



Both blocks are looking great--and you are almost done with the candle one--just some easy stitching on that one and it is done--so hang in there---
Merry Christmas--
enjoy the moments, diane

Hope the work day was not too back for you. Really like both the blocks! I managed to work on 4 blocks today. Not done but close.

Any progress is good progress. Your blocks look terrific and if you hadn't pointed out the diagonal mix I wouldn't have noticed.

I'm in love with your poinsettia block!! I'm going to have to check out that sew-along. Thanks for the great eye candy!

The red and green are so lovely together. You made a beautiful block and your Candles are beautiful too. We all have to unsew comes with the territory I think. Enjoy your pretty project and Happy Stitching.

I have looked at this quilt pattern. Your blocks are great. Love that fabric for the candles sticks.
