Merry Day after Christmas

As I'm sure all of you know 
the week before Christmas is
rather hectic.


Sooooo...
instead of posting Sherri's
beautiful but complex block for
Blockheads 2
I decided to have a drawing for 
the Blockheads 1 book
and post 2 blocks for Blockheads 2 
next week.

To enter the drawing for the Blockheads
book simply make an 
"after Christmas" comment
and next week we'll announce who the
Random Number Generator picked.

Good luck and have a great week.  

Meantime, lets go see how many of
the other designers were more organized
than I am (bet they don't live on a farm)
and what they did with Sherri's block.


Lynne of Kansas Troubles
Barb & Mary of Me and My Sister
Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic
Vanessa of Lella Boutique
Betsy Chutchian
Stacy lest Hsu
Laurie Simpson of Minick & Simpson
Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life
Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings
Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts
Carrie Nelson of Moda's Cutting Table


Jo Morton of Jo's Quilts probably won't be posting
in Blockheads much except when it's her block
 but you might just want
to drop in and see what she's doing.

  9. Today I am relaxing and I will do some appliqué. I probably will take a nap too. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Tomorrow I will pull out an unfinished project and decide whether to finish it or not.

  22. Christmas is being spent across the country from home visiting our family. It's a different kind of holiday this year. But good to spend extended time with folks we don't see much.

  33. After Christmas it is clean up for me. We use my sewing room for the storage, wrapping and as a catch all for the holidays. Yikes, its a mess. I'm looking forward to the two blocks next week from you. That will be a treat. Happy New Year!

  35. After Christmas is a delicious day of leftovers. A little stitching will also happen in the evening because a day without stitching is like a day without sunshine!

  42. We are still enjoying family for the holidays. They leave before 2019 makes its appearance, but today includes massages for the girls, and setting up new cell phones for the boys. Oh, and another family party!

  43. I have already ordered the book as a keepsake since I did BH1. It was perfect for a beginner quilter like me. I can definitely see the progression of my skills through the blocks. If I win, I will gift the book to a fellow quilter friend who is on a tight budget. Thank you, Jan, for all you do for us Blockheads.

  44. After Christmas, we travel to visit relatives and exchange gifts because Christmas in this family means staying home. Our Christmas can sometimes last a week ir longer this way.

  45. My son’s birthday is on Christmas Eve, so our Christmas celebration is always hectic and overwhelming. So after Christmas I like to just take it easy and work on quilting projects.

  49. After Christmas, we still loved each other, and said so.
    It sounds easy, but for a lot of people, for a lot of reasons, it can be a very difficult thing to bring out. Rudolph’s nose isn’t always red for foggy snow, sometimes it is red from crying. Thankfully, we could shed joyful tears, not sorrowful ones, even after all the sorrows that came to pass this year.

  53. Been having eye problems. I am really realizing how much I love my eyes and my quilting. Things are going to improve, so I am sooo happy for that. I have spent time with family, and am so thankful for that. Gonna get all picked up and put Christmas away. Tomorrow is our 53rd anniversary. How in the world did I get so blessed. Thank you Lord
