these blocks. I do know that a very kind quilter gifted me her patterns after she made this quilt. In 2011 the quilt was offered as a mystery quilt and I signed up. I looked forward to the ease of the patterns and fabrics being chosen by someone else. The embroidery thread was included each month - another plus. I started off well - first 5 months went swiftly. Then I must have stalled. On Saturday, I pulled out the blocks for November and December and cut the applique pieces. I got the first part basted and have begun stitching down the rays of the sunshine. In my mind, these were the last two blocks I needed to stitch but when I pulled out the box this morning, I found that I only have 5 completed. No worries. This will be a lovely winter project to rotate with my knitting plans. Thank goodness applique and knitting use different muscles!
