Block Twelve

I just can’t believe a year has gone by since we started “A Tisket A Tasket”!  A year!  And here we are at block number 12!  I started with a snowman and I’m ending with a snowman (ok, a snowlady).  Welcome December! 

Block Twelve Applique

Block Twelve Redwork

I can’t wait to see all of the finished quilts! Take a peek at all of the blocks in my Flickr group!  So many of you have made me smile and I’ve loved seeing your work! I hope you’ll add pictures of your finished quilts!  I’ll be checking in to see them. And keep posting your blocks as you finish them.  I’ll be looking at those too!

And finally, I can show you my finished version of  the appliqué and redwork quilts!


See the rick rack in the binding?  I’ll be posting a tutorial “how to” soon, so please check back!

And the redwork!  Ohhhh, sweet embroidery!


As for next year, did you think I would just drop all of of you cold?  You, my blog readers?  My favorite people in the world?  You’ll be getting a little treat every month in 2010, starting in January. 

As always, you can see the wool version of block 12 over at Cottons ‘n Wool.  The finished quilt will be coming soon!  Anne’s waiting for flannel to arrive! That’s right, we decided to go with flannel for the sashing.  It’s going to be so cute!

If  you’d like to purchase wool to make your own wool quilt, I found the best web site for you!  Woolies will love The Wool Basket!   I’m sure I could spend some time and money in this shop.

Happy December 5th everyone!  I feel like a grand reunion should be on the agenda in 2010 LOL!

  • Anonymous - Hi Anne
    Thanks very much for another lovely block and it balances the first one nicely. Unfortunately the snowlady doesn't represent the continuous rain we've been having for the past 6 weeks. I don't suppose it'll snow here at all, still my snowpeople will bring to mind last winter.
    Your finished quilt is gorgeous Anne and I shall have to get some rick-rack braid as well I think.
    Looking forward to next year, I'm glad you're not going to drop us but I think it's going to be all BOMs for me: four so far!. Off to buy the sashing fabric now.
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
