Moda Blockheads Week #38

Blockheads Week #38 - Question of the Week

I'm not that Mother/Mother-in-Law that insists my kids & grankids eat a second Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday just for me. Rather, Robert and I have a low key day, hanging out in our pj's, snacking on whatever we want and catching up on Netflix while the turkey roasts. "Dinner" consists of R dismantling the turkey (while basically eating his share) followed by pie. A real holiday for me. On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, after the hustle and bustle of the holiday and Black Friday, everyone gathers to relax and enjoy leftovers. Yup, I do a turkey/stuffing casserole with all our favorite sides - and more pies (more pumpkin & pecan). I've decided over the years that the holidays need to be more about enjoying the people who gather together, rather than worrying about the perfect menu on a specific day. I am truly Grateful and Blessed.

Block #38 - Peace and Plenty by Betsy Chutchian

What a perfect block choice for this week! We can all use more peace in our lives and share our bounty with others. Kathy and Joy made very different color choices this week. Kathy selected a navy and cream from Betsy's collections while Joy used a variety of KT prints for her Layered Patchwork version (love the stripe!).

My Layered Patchwork block eliminates a dozen seams.

  6. I am looking forward to going to WI and making ravioli for Christmas dinner with my two daughters. It's a tradition past down from my husband's grandmother (he is 66 so that's how old this is, hee hee).
