Can anyone guess? Well, if today's October 15th, and I'm pretty sure it IS, then today must be the deadline for the next Hometown Christmas section! Is everyone staying current? If you're not making this quilt, visit those who ARE through the links on the right side bar and give them all a little encouragement. Or harassment if they've fallen behind!
So today is the deadline for the third section, and as I mentioned last time I blogged about the quilt, those participating could either make the third section in the first row or make the third section in the book, which is actually the fourth section, I believe--the first part of the second row. (If this is confusing, just know that the books don't follow the order of the quilt, row by row.)
Here's mine--I followed the book and made the first part of the second row.
And how did I change mine from the book? Because you know I did! Instead of the filler pinwheel/hourglass blocks that were placed to the left of the bird section, I decided to make a couple birdhouses, and they seemed to balance better placed on the right side of the bird section.
Last week at my Thimbleberries Club meeting, someone brought in a completed Hometown Christmas quilt for show and tell, and boy was it beautiful! I know I'm going to love this quilt when it's done and I bet I'll wish Christmas was a year-round event!
