I didn't get around to finishing the December LePetite in time for the deadline, but I hope to have it finished in a few days, and also have this month's project finished by the end of this month. Think I can do it? The centre of the top is finished:

It is quite a lot smaller than the original. I started out with 1.5" squares for the prairie points, and I have fewer rows. But I think it turned out pretty cute so far - just need to figure out what to do for borders.

For this month's LePetite - the "Mon Ami" Schnibble - I'm using a jelly roll of Jennifer Chiaverini's New Year's Quilt collection for Red Rooster. I have had this roll and some yardage in my stash for quite a while and I figured what better use of it than the first quilt of the year?

Four first blocks are together, and using the Easy Angle ruler they are quick to cut.

The blocks turn out a bit bigger than Carrie's pattern, as the HST are 2.5" rather than 2", but I don't want to trim them down, and I don't mind a larger quilt.

Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida

Love both the tree and the stars. How big did the tree turn out? I am looking for something for a wall hanging for next Christmas. I always think to do one about a week before Christmas...poor planning on my part.
