There were thirteen of us in the bee - from the United States as well as England and New Zealand. Every month, each of us made a block for a member and a different member made a block for us. The house design was to represent that month.
Isn't this December block wonderful? Notice the fabulous wreath on the door, the tree in the window (as well as the trees outside), and the "Merry Christmas" in the upper left hand corner of the block.
This quilt hangs in my classroom and is a favorite of my students. It adds so much color and joy.
The fallen leaves are cornflakesThat fill the lawn’s wide dish.
And night and
The wind’s a spoon
That stirs them with a swish,
The sky’s a silver sifter
A-sifting white and slow,That gently shakes
On crisp brown flakes
The sugar known as snow.
