    Here are my blocks for my Christmas practice quilt finished. I'm not sure where I'm going from here with them. I may try to quilt in sections because there is no way my machine will handle all that. It's just a cheapie baby machine.

    The single block by itsself started out to be one of Bev's wonky blocks. I needed another green looking block and only tiny green scraps left. I started sewing around my last 4inch green square, but as I added strips it started to look like a green square framed by a drunk. It was only scraps so I had nothing really to loose, so I just started cutting it apart and turing the pieces and sewing it back together. I'm not sure I love it, but it was fun to do.

    Lisa, not sure what machine you have but I have a simple singer and have machine quilted a full-size quilt, a 70x70 quilt and at least 4 large size baby quilts. So who knows maybe yours can too:)

    I think you just outta put some sashing between those blocks then layer and baste it and tie the quilt...
    That's what I would do!!!
    With tying, you can always come back and quilt later when you get the long arm you are wanting...

    Lisa, your blocks are beautiful, so festive and Christmasy. It will be a gorgeous quilt. When I looked at your "wonky" block, I couldn't help but picture one of your descendants, many years from now, trying to figure out what pattern you used to make that block. :mrgreen:
