Christmas quilt in progress

I'm hoping to get my Christmas quilt top put together today. I've received all of the blocks from my Sew Beautiful friends (thanks, ladies!) and I made a few extras of my own.


I found this Virginia Wreath block in the Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns.

Poinsettia block
It's made like a dresden, but I thought the shape gave it a poinsettia look.

Stack o' presents
I also made this stack of presents block, based on this block by Little Miss Shabby.

Christmas star!
I showed you this star block last week. After I pulled out all of the finished blocks, I realized I made one extra, so one of the blocks that I made will probably become a mini quilt or a pillow.

Here are all of the blocks. So awesome. I'm going to add white sashing and then probably a scrappy border. What do you think?

It IS awesome! I love it. In particular that one block in the center of the top row that looks like hanging ornaments.
