I can hardly call this past year a year of quilting. Actually, I can't at all. I have barely done any! The sports quilt I promised my father for Christmas LAST year is a perfect example of this. Until last week, I only had about half of the blocks done. Sad, but true.

Last week I decided to really get in gear and focus on wrapping this thing up. I spent an evening sewing the pieces together while my husband won Husband of the Year for pressing the seams. The help was so amazing and made these surprisingly time consuming blocks move along much more quickly. So here you have it, a stack of 63 blocks made with colors of my dad's favorite Detroit sports teams.

Now I'm off sewing the blocks together and will hopefully be able to finish this! Wouldn't that be exciting?

You and your husband are a good team. That's going to be an awesome quilt and I'm sure your dad will love it. I'm working on Bonnie Hunter's new mystery Orca Bay. Hope you have a great holiday.
