I loved this block so much, I made another quilt. Actually, this was all Naughty Notorious Nancy's fault, as I'll explain. Just after the quilt-along started, NNN (as I'll call her cos it's quicker than saying Naughty Notorious Nancy all the time,) and I were having one of our email conversations one day and she said wouldn't it be fun to make a second smaller version in Christmas colours. I agreed that it would, never dreaming what was coming next. Am I naive sometimes, or what? Yep, she issued a challenge to me to make another one and she would too. Well, I'm not one to ignore a dare like this, so I agreed. We thought it'd be fun to keep it secret from Lynn until today, and reveal our "Mission Impossibles" during the Grand Parade, so here, without further ado is my secret challenge version
As you can see, I decided to make a Christmas topper this time with just 5 blocks, and to set them on point. My friend Bilbo had joined in when this QAL started cos she loved the quilt too, but she had not been able to keep up due to demands of her garden, etc. Then one day, I showed her my drawing of this version, and she loved it, so she decided to get going again and make a similar version, which you can see on her blog.
So, as you can see, NNN has a lot to answer for, and now I'm waiting to see if she managed to take up her own challenge, when she finally gets up.
Now here's another photo, this time being beautifully modeled by my little gingerbread friends. Yes, I should have smoothed the borders out properly before I took this photo, but it was late, I was tired, etc, etc ....
Remember, be warned, if you're talking to her, NNN is obviously the one who always got all her friends into trouble when she was at school!
