BLOCKHEADS 2 - Block 35

This is week 35 and this is MY block. Nothing too exciting here people, move along......  It's just that I've designed a couple of busy sampler quilts and there is a need for a quiet place.  Even with 2 bold colors. This simple checkerboard is a happy, restful block for your quilt.  The directions are HERE 

Polly and I just got back from a long weekend in New York City. It's always grand this time of year and the sights and sounds are thrilling. The street seemed even more hectic and crowded this year. I guess everyone wanted in on the holiday cheer.   Among some of our usual haunts, we wandered over to the Ralph Lauren flagship store.  This jacket wanted to go home with me.  Alas, it was made more for runway models than style conscious, old fat ladies. 

 This is the last year of Saks Fifth Avenue's flagship store near Rockefeller Center.  They are going out with a bang. The light show was magnificent.

 The windows at Bergdorf's didn't disappoint either. This red and white one seemed to be everyone's favorite. Mine too.

Inside, it was pretty stunning too - this tree topper goes to the top of the list.

even simple tree ornaments make a big statement.

Once home and unpacked, I found this gift from Moda.  It seems somebody there knows the color of my studio :)

Love this block! I have so many scrappy 1.5 x 2.5 strips - and well, I just didn't know how to use them up. It seems, no matter what, I'm always able to cut this size from my leftover scraps, and they just weren't disappearing quick enough into my favorite log cabin blocks. What a wonderful block idea - thank you for this pattern.
