ringo pie: christmas block

noel3

Still catching up on my Ringo Pie blocks.  Man, this one was hard too.  Amber (One Shabby Chick) chose a Christmas theme and I had no idea what to make – maybe just because there were so many ideas that I wanted to try.  Other than that, I realized I am not a planner, at least not at this point in my life.  I just don’t plan that much stuff ahead of time.  I know a lot of people who are amazing planners, I however am not one of them.  So it was hard too because I don’t even really want to think about Christmas at this point, just trying to enjoy fall.  But it was fun though, I actually got into the more ideas that popped into my head.

I remember pinning this love block by tula pink and I just was dazzled by it.  I mean, how cool is that?!

So I did a Christmas version using the word ‘noel’.  I hope it fits in with the rest of the blocks Amber!

And just because, here’s a shot of all the ringo pie blocks made for me, for my desserts theme, I have yet to make my block.  :(

    Great block!! OK – it’s a bit early for the Christmas stuff (although I’m madly crocheting a blanket for a present right now or I’ll never have it finished in time!), but this is really clean and simple and I’m sure it will look fantastic in the finished quilt.
