The Forgotten Quilt ...

It's been a week since I posted.  I have been the sickest I have been in years ... ugh!  I've had an upper respiratory infection and hopefully I am now on the mend! 

Last week before I began feeling bad I found these Christmas quilt blocks that I began in 2007!  It was a block of the month from my local quilt shop.  I had it all packed away with about twenty more smaller blocks.
I took just a few pictures of the bigger blocks.

I now have the instructions in front of me on how to finish it.  The center block has an appliqued Christmas tree block that I hadn't started.  I know I won't have it completed by Christmas but hey at least I found it! :)

Maybe I will feel like sewing this weekend. 

I am now going to try to catch up on my blog reading!

Thanks for visiting!

Sorry you have been sick; there is a lot of junk floating around up here, and my husband is now sick. Glad you are doing better.

I love these blocks. Isn't it hilarious to find a treasure like this? Sometimes I think I could open a shop when I go hunting in my sewing room for something.

Hi Donna.
Hope you feel better this week!
Your quilt blocks are beautiful. I love the colors. I miss sewing. Sometimes I feel Iike just putting all my other craft stuff in a big box and just forget about it.
Wishing you a wonderful week.
Hugs, Sharon
