I have been a bad blogger. This is always the busiest time of year for me, and there are so many things I have let slip the past month. I did, however, manage to get the December BOM done. This is the 20th and final block, so now I can sew all my blocks together with the sashing and red cornerstones and have a completed quilt top.
The December block is from Quilterscache and is called Red Cross 2. I used a light background with my Civil War reproduction fabrics, and this is what I ended up with:
The fabric in the background is what I picked to use as sashing. All of my blocks are done in reds and navy blues, and the sashing fabric is a lighter blue with a navy print. I'll be using the same red as the block centers for the sashing cornerstones. I am going to lay out my blocks as soon as I finish this post and get some sashing strips cut so I can get this one finished! I'll post a picture of the top as soon as I get it all together.
