Stormy Sewing

We had some thunderstorms last night that were pretty bad.  Luckily we didn't have any damage, but that wind was pretty strong!  Lots of thunder and lightening, too.  I was driving home during part of it and had to pull over because I couldn't see the road.

I did manage to get a little sewing done last night.  I finished the sample block for the (maybe) Christmas quilt.  This block was made with 1" finished strips.  I don't think I would use the 1" strips.  I think I would make it at least 1-1/2" finished, if not bigger.

I'm still thinking of reversing the colors and alternating blocks.  And the yellow in the middle, while really pretty, is just oo bright in my opinion.  I have a white material with speckles of red and green that might end up in place of the yellow.  I am just having fun playing with the blocks.
