July's ~A Christmas Story~ blocks : Noel and Bethlehem

I'm so sorry for being a day late with the release of July's double blocks for my ~A Christmas Story~ quilt!
Of course, you're all so lovely, I know you forgive me. These past few weeks have been hustle and bustle and a few things almost slipped my mind. 

This month the two blocks are...
...and...
I think of all the blocks in this quilt, Bethlehem has become my favourite. All those little houses with lights twinkling in their windows, and the tiny sheep on the hillside, fluffy with french knots...yep, it's my fave. :-)
The pattern for both blocks can be purchased in my Etsy Shop HERE today for $4.95.
Have a look HERE at all the blocks in the quilt, and tell me which one is your favourite. :-)

I think I can say the house is ready. All the boxes are gone, everything has a home, and I'm cooking wonderful meals once more. :-)
Hugs

  4. Glad that you're finally settled, now its time to enjoy it all. Difficult to choose a favourite block, the whole quilt is so beautiful, besides Mary and the Chalice I'd say the Bethlehem block, love the cute sheep and little houses!

  10. Oh how lovely! I have put this one off long enough. I *must* stitch this beautiful quilt to hang on my wall at Christmas. I can't wait!

    I love all of the blocks but must admit I find those little sheepies irresistable. My hubby is a reformed.... err, I mean retired shearer (due to injury) and I was a spinner/knitter in a past life. ;o) What's not to love about sheep? (smile) Oh, Mary! I love Mary too. ;o)

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
