I wanted to share with you the 4 blocks that I finished over the weekend for the fall Patchwork Party blocks. There is a total of 12 blocks and then I am going to make 8 alternate blocks with 2 borders.

I am really loving how these blocks are turning out. Don't you just loves these fabrics. I do. Love the blacks and reds in this line. I just have to square them up but I will do that once I have all the blocks done. I guess it is time for me to take my Xmas table cloth off but I think if it didn't have the Santas on it it would be so appropriate for what our weather has been like since the weekend. I need to do some birthday shopping for my hubby this weekend so hopefully I can find a Valentine/spring table cloth. Hubby's BD is on February 6th and then have to turn around and get him something for VD. It is so hard trying to think of something to get him so close together.

Hubby is having his gall bladder removed next Wednesday. I am hoping this goes smoothly since this is his second stomach area surgery since November. I am so hoping that his fixes his problems that he has been having.

Tonight I am working on my challenge quilt. I am going to start to put that border on. I know, you are saying it's about time and I so agree. I off to measure it right now.

Hope you all have a good evening and if you are in a place where the weather has been cold, keep warm.

I thought the Santas were the background for those blocks when I first looked, lol. The blocks look good. Hurry up with them. I have found another "challenge" you are going to want to do. Look at my blog tomorrow to see, lol.

Beautiful fabric, I agree! Fun quilt, I can't wait to see it come together. I wish your hubby best of luck with his surgery and hope that it ends his health woes. I know it made a huge difference when they took mine out!

Those blocks look great. I would love for you to do the Shakespeare in the Park with us. It is a great quilt. I hope your husband's surgery goes well.

What setting are you using for your block party blocks? Do you know when the next one starts? I just might have to join in.

I, too, love red and black together. Feb 6 was my paternal grandmother's birthday. Oh how I loved that grandma!! I hope you gals don't mind that I am crashing your blogging party. It was getting very lonely in email land... now I see why. Everyone is HERE!!!
