November Block and Charity Block

HI All!  I hope that everyone is doing well this Holiday Season! It is always an exciting, rushed time here in my household!
I have had my charity block done for awhile now- just need to get it in the mail! I found a tutorial for a modified pineapple block and I really enjoyed putting it together! I can definitely see making more of these in the future!
 Anthea- I think your quilt is going to be absolutely beautiful! I had fun digging through my scraps to come up with colors that you were looking for. I hope you don't mind- I couldn't resist putting the boat in the center. I used the boat fabric when I made ties for my husband and boys a few years ago. I am including a scrap of the boat fabric for you with the block! I hope the colors work well with the other blocks!

I am waiting on one more block for the Christmas star quilt and then I will get it together! The blocks are so beautiful together! It is going to be difficult to part with the quilt-but I will have no problem visiting my mom and seeing it often! :) 
No off to look for fabrics for the December block....
Happy Holidays to all!

  1. I love your interpretation of the log cabin Amy, the water and the clouds add great drama and the boat is a cute touch. The creams with the small red flowers and acorns add a subtle bit of ping. Thank you enormously.
    You've obviously had a very busy month. The charity quilt block is a goody and to think that you've nearly finished sewing up all your Christmas star blocks, blimey, I'm feeling exhausted just imagining how you've done all that as well as the normal crazy stuff that goes on at this time of year.
    Thanks again
