Hugs and Kisses – Block 12

Block 12 is finished!  Well, not completely finished.  I still have a bit of stitching to do before I can call it finished.IMG_5780

If you are doing the BOM, this is what your block will look like.  Along with this month’s block, you will receive everything to finish the quilt….sashings, cornterstones and swags.  Even the binding.  It’s all in your next package, which should be arriving on your doorstep very soon.IMG_5786

I am in the process of squaring up all of the blocks.  Each block is 12″ finished, so I am trimming them to 12 1/2″ square.  I am simply using my 12 1/2″ square to trim the blocks.  Just make sure the square is centered on the block and away you go!IMG_5782

Here are all 12 blocks!IMG_5783

2019 is approaching and I have some new projects to share with you.  I just signed up for Esther Aliu’s 2019 BOM.  I have been hunting for an applique project that will challenge me, and I think this is it.  I will be posting pics as soon as I get started.

I must confess I am totally obsessed with my most recent handpiecing project.  I am working on The Handmade Quilt by Carolyn Forster.  Very addicting.  Of course, I love the fabric I am using, so that helps!  The fabric is called Sun Kiss by Tilda.  I bought half yard cuts of the whole line!  Merry Christmas, Me!
