Into the woods

Hi folks! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are not too stuffed to sew! The hubs and I are having Thanksgiving at our daughter's house, which is great for me because it means very little cooking! I didn't bring my sewing machine, but I do have these to show you:

Don't they look festive? These are the next couple of blocks for the winter quilt BOM from Cindy at Quilt Doodle Doodles that I am working on for the next few weeks. This is a very easy quilt and is very relaxing to work on. Seriously, you can grab a few minutes here and there and make great progress. (You can buy the patterns HERE or HERE).

Here are the three blocks I've done for this quilt all together:

I almost have the major center row done! I am considering "quilting as I go," which is why I'm doing them in this order. I've never done that with a whole quilt before, but why not try it on this one?

Since this was a holiday week, that's all the sewing I got finished! Hey, I'm happy I got anything done. Hope you finished something too! I'm going shopping later for a backing for this. I'm thinking flannel. Sounds cozy and fitting for a winter quilt, doesn't it?

Back to our regularly scheduled projects next week, with some of this thrown in for fun. Enjoy the weekend! Happy sewing!

I love those scrappy green trees. Can't wait to see the whole thing.

The blocks on this quilt are so cute, but I still think that background fabric just makes it.

Those blocks are so cute! I think a winter scene quilt just asks for a flannel backing. Hopped on over from Crazy Mom Quilts.

This is really cute Mari. I am going to take a look at that pattern as this looks to be right up my alley.
Happy Thanksgiving. I am so full - no dinner planned for tonight!

Your blocks look great! I did mine through the year and just need to border, quilt, and bind it.
