Construction Boom

My little Christmas Cottage neighborhood just grew and grew. Seems there was a building boom going on. The little blocks are just too fun and I couldn't help it, I found myself making more of them so now instead of a wallhanging, as I originally planned, I have a quilt.

I have been working on the landscaping (sashing) a bit. This green seemed to go with every block. I'm thinking of sewing red buttons at the intersections and I still have to find the right fabric for borders.

I may not be able to snuggle under it by this Christmas, but it will definitely be there, full of fun memories, for many Christmas's to come.
