Christmas Party

The Desert Rose quilt shop in town will be having their Christmas Party this Sat. The owner gave us 3 Fat Quarters and a 6 inch strip of tan. We are to make a 12 1/2 inch block and the rest of material we can keep. I wanted a block to focus on  the Poinsettia. "Nose gay" by Marcia Hohn http://222.quilterscache.com is just what I was looking for. I believe these blocks  will be put together and raffled off for charity. We have 15 people signed up. Looking forward to seeing what the other quilters have made. 

For the exchange we are to bring 2 quality fat quarters. I did not want the usual stack or roll but did find a nice way of making triangles.
This is the second quilt I made  and it is hand quilted.
