Grandmother's Choice BOW #9 Done and a new QAL

This block is called Brick Pavement and the pattern can be found here.  Again, the history lesson that goes along with this one is shocking and sad.  With it being an election year, this information really makes me thankful for the ones who came before us that fought to assure that we do now have the right to vote.

On a completely different path, it's 58 days until Christmas, so time to start another Christmas quilt, lol!

Pam at the blog Mama Spark's World has started a Christmas Fence QAL
 Christmas Fence QAL 2012

Her first post with all the specs can be found here.  Hope to see you join us.  I am not sure how many blocks I'm going to do but to start, I am shooting for 16-20...I think Pam did 42 or so using a charm pack and a jelly roll.

Anyway, here are my first 4...they are utilizing Moda's Holly Jolly Snowmen from Kathy Schmitz and I am just going to make blocks until I run out of material.  This material is from my stash and is leftovers from another Christmas project.  There is a Flickr group here.

All of your blocks always look so good! I really like the QAL pattern and your fabric to go with it, but I have so many projects already I think I'll have to sit this one out. :( Maybe my New Year's resolution should be to not plan any projects but just be in swaps and QALs. Wouldn't that be an interesting year...
