    It's amazing how you already know what you will be adding -- before it gets to you. I am learning so much from you gals. Thanks.

    Perhaps next time around, I'll be one of nervous ones anticipating. I will definitely stress over not ruining someone else's handiwork. Keep those pics coming. Good luck all around.

    OH GAIL lol....not learning from me....that was a joke. I am a newbie....havent even figured out my own row yet. I said adding "plain strip" meaning a piece of fabric...no quilting no piecing...then no mistakes.

    HEEHEE Margie, the "yoke's" on me. :oops: I'm so green, I thought by plain strips you meant a series of solid strips to compliment the row. :lol: I guess that shows what I know. I love it. A funny so early on New Year's Day. HAPPY NEW YEAR. WooHoo !!

    I thought a row of strips/big blocks would bring out the detail of her work as well LOL

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I went ahead and created a post in the picture section for our beautiful rows. Feel free to post yours there too when you're done.

    Ah shucks guys! :oops: If I can do it, anyone can. I just worked on one block at a time and DD drew the mittens for me. I think these tops will look great when we're all finished.

    Oh, no Sandpat, not all of them. The star is a paper pieced smaller block that I added borders to. The joy snowman is from a wallhanging and the penguins are a hen and chicks variation. I got alot of inspiration from a book of christmas projects and went from there. DD really helped alot picking out color combinations. She really has an eye for what looks good.

    yes, 4 blocks the same. I love the blue fabric but it was a royal stinker to get to hold a crisp pressing because of the pearly paint stuff on it.

    Uh Oh! I just noticed an odd ball on the left spinning the wrong way! I think I'll leave it that way for fun. That one is definitely me.

    sure can! it's just half square triangles mainly.

    for each 8 inch block I used:
    4-2.5 inch red/white HST
    2-2.5 inch blue/white HST
    2-2.5 by 4.5 inch blue rectangles
    2-2.5 by 6.5 inch blue rectangles
    (seam allowance has been added)

    Thank you so much. I think I'll use a light sage green background and look for other Christmas candy blocks. My grandkids will love it too.

    It's great that you can leave it the way that it is. I think I would do the same. That will add to the "story" of the quilt. Love those blocks. :thumbup:

    LOL! I know it wasn't much help. I started to go look for some more ideas, but I was waylaid and then sidetracked. Maybe it's time for a sidecar? :wink:
