February Edition of the Christmas Quilt Along

The Christmas Quilt Along that Sue of Quilt Times http://www.quilttimes.blogspot.com/  hosted last year was so successful that she has teamed up with Cathi of Shakerwood Quilts http://www.shakerwoodquilts.blogspot.com/  to host the qal every month starting today.  I really haven't planned my Christmas items yet, but Sue and Cathi designed a beautiful star quilt to share with those who participate in the qal.  So, I will sign in and get my first block today.  But while my computer was warming up I did get to start a small quilt block ornament that I  wanted to make.

I'm making the block on the right.  The pattern is in the book 50 Country Quilting Projects (one of my Saver's finds) published in 1990.  That doesn't seem so long ago (to me at least) but everything is by template, not measurements.  So, I am measuring the templates to know what to cut.  Yeah, I make everything harder for myself:)

Now to get my block plans.
