Odd man out

Hi folks! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday celebration! We had a very nice Christmas with lots of food and family. The only weird thing was that there was no snow at all! In fact, the sun came out for the first time in weeks. We had a white Thanksgiving but a brown Christmas. It was a very strange feeling. 

In addition to baking seventeen dozen cookies, I finished one thing this week:


This is the last block for the Odd Fellow's quilt, which was my second project for RSC14. I actually started sashing the blocks this week too, so this quilt should go together quickly. The sashing for these is a very narrow solid white, with no cornerstones. It sounds dull, but it looks great.

Here is this week's block with some of his brothers and sisters:

Look! Sunshine!

Notice anything? This last block is made in opposite values from all the others. Why? Because he's the Odd Fellow! Okay, maybe a bad joke, but it will make complete sense when the whole quilt is together.

That's almost all the sewing I accomplished this week. It was a very busy week! Somehow vacation was busier than work. Hope you were able to fit in a few stitches this week too. Enjoy your weekend!

Linking to Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Amanda Jean at crazy mom quilts, and also Angela at soscrappy. Happy sewing!
