Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied.
~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859

With December being so busy and my getting a bee in my bonnet to reorganize my sewing room, I didn't get anywhere near my posted project for December so it's playing an encore this month. These are blocks that are in various stages of completion for a heirloom sampler quilt. It's time to "git 'em done!"
