"Tis the Season" .. "Monster Patch" ..... and some more .....

First of all I see the end of Natalie Bird`s beautiful pattern of "tis the season. I did not manage to follow the dates on Chookeyblue`s SAL for this one,but please be HAPPY for me as I am sure by March it should be ready for Christmas 2012 :0)

Little did I notice
that there were
A and B blocks.
I redid some and
have changed
some of theblocks
around the best
I could.
Now then,if you
could come up
with another way,
please do not
hesitate to tell

Took the easy way
out here as I
used some other
fabrics in the
sashing. That
way this quilt
was much easier
to sew together.
The Monster Patch
quilt on my dis-
play wall ...
LOL..well it`s
just on an old
flannel piece.
A finish for
March 29th,
that`s fact

Another finish for end March or February?? Not so sure,more blocks to be done and a secret:-)

Both of my quilt guilds sew quilts for charity. This one is mine, to be given away on Wednesday. We make the quilts for long term seek children with cancer. A lady down south of Norway distributes the quilts to hospitals. The organization is called "quilts warming you"/tepper som varmer. I hope the little child receiving this will be able to enjoy some of the sweet patterns of the fabrics. This is my second finish for February.

The backing looks
good as well,I
This from me for now!
Hope you will enjoy
a sewing weekend.
We have had such a
lovely day to day;
bright warm sun,
snow melting,birds
singing: SPRING
is in the air:o)
I have enjoyed a cup
side,in the corner
by the door to the
This reminds me
of something,maybe I
should start making
this small,little
cup block soon ..
LOL.. Hugs,Grethe.

Well done on getting all the Tis The Season blocks finished...A & B doesn't matter, your blocks look great together laid out on the table, and the border fabrics are beautiful. Love the monster quilt, so colourful and fun.

Nydelig julequilt med flotte broderier. Tipper barnet som får din herlig quilt kommer til å kose mye med det og ha fine stunder med å studere de morsomme motivene.

Funky monster quilt too so bright and fun. I'm sure your charity quilt will also be greatly appreciated.
