Phase 2

of Winter Solstice has been completed in time to be included in Paulette's monthly post.

This month our 'block' was actually 6 small house blocks and 7 stars.

Here is the original photo from the book.

My barns are on my little design wall along with the new additions.

My 6 little houses....

a row of 3 large stars....

...and a mix of stars that will be sprinkled throughout the quilts.

I goofed on one and made the star the wrong size for the background.  I might just leave it...after all...the sizes don't exactly have any rhyme or reason.  (It's the top center gold star above.)  It would be a quick re-do if I decide it isn't going to work. 

Since I work one block at a time...I don't even know what we're doing next month!  Some trees?  Some sheep? It has to be one or the other. 

Happy stitching.



  1. Cute! Love your blocks! I'm betting we'll be doing trees...

  2. Hi Bev!
    Magnificent!! I'm loving this quilt!! Next month you can do either the lambs or the trees or both!! Several of the ladies are wanting to do it all so why not do what you can!! We will do the border in October...if all goes well! That leaves the quilting and binding for November/December...plenty of time for Winter!! How does that sound? So far it's been fun!

  3. I hope you do sheep, I love your houses they are so cute!

  4. Cute blocks! I messed up this month, so will be doing a bit of everything. LOL

  5. I vote for sheep!! Love how this is coming together!
