Christmas QAL, Lanterns and Slabs

This weekend Hazel is hosting the Christmas QAL http://www.hazelsquilts.blogspot.com  Hope you can find some time to join in and quilt with us.  I'm curious and want to see your projects.  If you are new to the QAL, the info intro on the Christmas QAL page is a good place to start.  Both Hazel and I have that posted.
Isn't this a beautiful bundle of fabric?  I received it today from Henry Glass Fabrics and is what I won from their July 4th giveaway. 
This week they are hosting a Summer Fabric Party.  Check it out. http://henryglassfabrics.blogspot.com/
I joined the Lantern QAL at Quilty Habit and completed the first block. http://www.quiltyhabit.blogspot.com   I made 2 of the block because I'm not sure what I'm making in the way of size or design.

Sharon of Vrooman's Quilts posted today about the slab blocks (scrap blocks) being collected by Cheryl, a quilter in Canada, for victims in Southern Alberta and Calgary.  http://naptimequilter.blogspot.ca/2013/06/slabs-for.html  I have one block completed and one half done and that's just from this afternoon and evening.  After the first block they come together quickly.  This is doable for me because I don't have to make a complete quilt. 
God Bless You.
