The end of the year is almost here, and we're nearing the last round of Blockheads' blocks. Just 6 blocks/weeks left after today! I can't believe how quickly the year has gone by. But, before we get to Block #42...
Question of the Week: My perfect holiday season is - big and boisterous or quiet and peaceful? I will spend this week....
My perfect holiday is when all the kids and grankids come for food, games, gifts and an overnight slumber party at the KT Retreat. Then, Robert and I are ready for a quiet Christmas Day at home alone. It's the best of both worlds! I'm just done shopping and decorating, just need to finish up some baking and last minute cooking. Everyone brings heavy appetizers - meatballs, dips, veggies, etc. and we snack all night long. Of course, there are more desserts than anything else. Good thing for my waistline it's only once a year!
Block #43 -Turnstile by Carrie NelsonFirst of all, I'd like to thank Carrie for all she's done to help with our Blockheads BOW. She not only designed her blocks, but has been essential in coordinating patterns, setting up the Moda directory of all the Blockheads' Blocks, and generating our weekly questions. So glad she's on our team.
Here are Kathy's traditional block and Joy's Layered Patchwork option (left).
Find Carrie's instructions for Turnstile on her blog HERE.
My Layered Patchwork instructions can be found HERE.

We saved 12 seams and alot of pressing using Layered Patchwork. Give it a try!
I hope all of you celebrate the season in your favorite way with all your favorite people.
Merry Christmas from our house to yours.
Don't miss the rest of the Blockheads this week:
