Can you feel it? Can you feel the excitement as we wind up to the big finale of the 12 Days of Color?? I can! Well, excitement and a sense of accomplishment (and relief!) may be more like it! I am looking forward to packing up the prizes and sending them out for sure!
Some of you have been asking what I will be doing with the blocks when I am done. To be honest, I am not sure. I probably will make some of them into quilts to donate or sell for charity. My daughter was checking out the Wee Wonder prints with great interest, so I may make something from that for her. We’ll see as time goes on. Maybe I will have another giveaway and give a bunch of the blocks away.
I do plan on taking some pictures with all of the blocks together in groups so you can get an idea of the overall impression they make. That should be fun!
Okay onto today’s block. This one is called Stairway and it is by the amazing Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew.
Her interview with Pat Sloan is here, and the directions to her block are here. I loved the simplicity of this block. After all of the star ” type” blocks, I was ready for this simple little rail fence variation. And I had fun with the colors…again!
Here is the Kona block done up in—in Oasis, Fog, and Breakers ( I followed Allison’s instructions, but I used these three colors very randomly):
Here is the second Blue And White from Michael Miller block (this is actually very planned out but one of the prints had so much variety, it looks more random than it really is):
Here is the Grunge from Moda block (and for the Grunge, I stuck to a very, very controlled arrangement!):
And here are the Aurifil threads of the day (2605 and 2780):
You know the drill by now! Go ahead and comment on the blocks, the fabrics, the threads, your hopes for the New Year, what you’re snacking on right now, etc….A comment a day makes you eligible for the daily small packs and the big prizes at the end as well!
I know I keep teasing you with saying, “oh, I’ll post those prize photos tomorrow…blah, blah, blah…..” but Tomorrow I think I may actually get that done….maybe…. (I know you don’t believe me, but thanks for humoring me all the same!)
