I started this on Sunday when the theme was released. So I thought I'd make nine blocks and make a baby quilt. I strip pieced the 4-patch blocks. And then I had a hectic week and was scrambling last night to manage a finish by the deadline. 😉

I decided to make a rail fence baby quilt. The first quilt I made was a flannel rail fence for my nephew in 2003. I used EQ8 software to design my quilt using one colour. I had enough Kona Pacific, Astral, Paris Blue, and Cornflower to make a baby quilt, 32 x 40 inches.

I've decided to use Kona solids again for my monthly blocks. I used Kona Pink and Honeysuckle for the January block. Jen created a video to show you how to make the flying geese blocks.

I used Kona Sand and Scone for the December block. I made a cutting error, so mine is slightly different than the pattern.

Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Happy Holidays. The holiday season is a time for celebration and a time for giving. The spirit is in the togetherness and the thought to which you put into thinking about others.

Sandra @ Musings of a Menopausal Melon launched a new pattern last week -- Heading North. My blog post was scheduled to post on November 3 while I was on vacation, but when copying the permalink on my phone, I somehow deleted the entire post.
The pattern has two sizes, each with a different layout. The block is in EQ8, so I played around with colours before choosing my fabrics. I mixed two Island Batik fabrics with other prints.
You can purchase Sandra's pattern here.
