NOVEMBER FAT QUARTER QUARTER QUILTS BLOCK ALONG

Wow, eleven months under by belt.  I now have 66 blocks and wonder if December will be the final month with a total of 72.  I don't usually stick it out this long.  
Here is the November block.  I am surprised that all of these have gone so well.  The unfinished size is 5.5 inches square.  That means that pieces like those little squares only finish at 1 inch.  One thing I have learned doing this quilt along is that my piecing accuracy has improved a great deal.  
A month or two ago when looking through my stash for more red fabrics I cam across a bag of them along with this red work panel.  I decided that I would try to incorporate it into a quilt with all this year's blocks from this quilt along I have made.
I cut out the flower panel pieces, deciding not to use any of the animal or fruit pieces.  
I got a couple more blocks done, only three more to go.  I make six each month.
Yes I think this is going to be a great idea for a finish.
