November Finish

Some sweet friends helped hold up my quilt so I could get a photo--this is a really long quilt! 
The 4" x 5" Block Anthology quilt was my One Monthly Goal for November. 

I used a meander style pantograph to quilt it....

...and a silver gray Aurifil thread that blended into everything very nicely, I think. 

A label, of course! 

This month's Patches of Blue SAL block is the sleigh.
I have decided that I want my quilt to be a "year round" blue and white quilt, so I am leaving off the snow flake applique and subbing a different block from the book for the sleigh. 
I decided on the  Oak Leaf and Reel block which was too large to fit into the space, so I shrank it down a bit using my printer. Then, since the space is a rectangle, I made more stars (there are other stars around the quilt)  to fill up the space on the side. This is the final block, so now I can start putting everything together--can't wait to see how it will look!

  1. Your anthology quilt is a winner! I think sometimes choosing the thread color is one of the hardest steps. :)
    Great block substitution choice! Very pretty.

  9. Lori from Humble Quilts mentioned some type of blue and white quilt exhibit coming up and that she might enter a quilt. I immediately thought of you with so many blue and white quilts.
