September Christmas QAL - Post 4

I have been sewing today, but not on a Christmas item, although there is so much red and green in this project that I think it could be mistaken for a Christmas Quilt.  I mentioned earlier this week that I made a churn dash quilt.  It is very colorful.  When you take one block at a time, it seems very simple.


But put them all together and there is a color burst.
There are only 5 prints in fabrics in this quilt, but it looks like 100. 
Well, this quilt is becoming another of my favorites.  I think I might do a bit more ditch stitching and then put on the binding. 
 
Thank you to lovely Hazel for hosting this weekend.  She does such a good job of it.  And have you seen all of the pastry people have been showing?  Between the cookies, blondies, gingerbread, Sue's boozy recipes and I don't know what else, we could become a Cook and Quilt Along.
 
Hopefully I'll be seeing you here next month.
 
God Bless and have a great time quilting (and eating;-)
