December TIF Crazy Quilt block

Well here it is my final Crazy Quilt block for the TIF challenge this year.
I can't believe that I have made 12 blocks.
If someone had asked me this time last year if I could make 12 Crazy blocks in a year I would have laughed in their face.
I have enjoyed this years challenge very much--I haven't always liked the colours in the beginning but by the end of each block I was always happy with the result.
I am now going to try to get the blocks made into a book before the end of the year because if I don't then it will never get done.
I would like to thank Sharon for creating this challenge which has given me the chance to create something different to what I normally do.
I am pleased that I have seen another year through to the very end and I am looking forward to the new challenge next year. To see all 12 blocks together click on the Flickr tag on the left side bar that says what is this and then click on the TIF challenge words that are hilited.
I would like to take this advantage to wish Sharon and all the TIF challengers a Merry Christmas and a creative stitching New Year

Congratulations Doreen, i hope to get mine finished by the end of the month but I dont put in as much work as you do, I have more or less decided what I want to do, just have to get it organised. Of to KI tomorrow so it has been a frantic few days. Merry Christmas if I dont have time to say so later.
