One of my projects was this Kim Diehl pattern called Twinkle Trees from her lovely Simple Christmas Tidings book. I purchased the book and fabric kit as my Christmas present to myself in 2017 because I fell in love with the gorgeous sample quilt at Quilter's Nine Patch. And then it sat in the closet and waited patiently for a turn at the sewing machine.

Here are the 20 blocks that I finished at quilt retreat. I really like how scrappy they turned out.
And here on the design wall today is the first tree block almost ready to assemble.
There are many more blocks still to sew, but it's too discouraging to look ahead and try to figure out how much more sewing needs to happen before the quilt top starts to take shape. So I'm just taking it one relaxing block at a time!
Hop over to Small Quilts to see what other quilters have on their design walls today.
