Where Christmas lights are twinkling around the neighborhood like stars.

Color Calendar color of the month Red! And I like the words chosen to describe red; festive, courageous,

In view of celebrating red I worked on my 4 Medallion Quilt and got it pieced together finally this week.
Two medallions red and two blue, I think blue and red work together well.

(When I say medallion I'm using it to describe the design process, beginning with a center square and working out from there with borders ) As a challenge to myself, I started with the small center squares to see where the process would go.
At first I wasn't sure if I would put the red and blue blocks together.
All four were variations of a theme, 2 red and 2 blue medallion blocks, that made a good statement, together they went!

More Log Cabin blocks have been pieced and added to the growing stack. Visit Temecula Quilt Co. where they have a QAL in progress, Down Home Darling, using Log Cabin blocks, one of my favorites.
I'm working at my own speed but getting lots of inspiration from Temecula Quilt Co.!

That's the quilt news where it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ( for around here )
and we are remembering to be thankful.

'Peace on Earth, good will to men' 

I'll be by to visit!
