Block 5 of Block of the Year DONE!

Finally.  This block actually took about 16 months to finish.  I don't work on it a lot, obviously, but my goal was to get at least one done a year.  Maybe by the time I retire I'll be able to finish this whole quilt.

Pattern:  Gingerbread House - Baltimore Christmas by Pearl P Pereira

I'm not a great hand applique person, but I learn as I go along.  I'm using the starch turn method and hand appliqueing it down.

I have not been doing much.  I have had that awful cold/cough that is going around.  I'm on week 2 and still not sleeping well because I cough all night.  Doctors just say to ride it out and come back if it's not better in a couple days.  Because I've been sick I haven't been able to visit my mother-in-law but she is home and is doing better.  Jeff said her memory is getting better.  Whew!  We were really worried.

Thanks for looking.

The block is well worth the effort you've put into it. The entire quilt will be amazing and worth the time!
