Redwork Christmas Quilt (Update #3)

So by now you are probably wondering how the redwork Christmas quilt is coming along for Little Snicker. Well I still haven't done the writing on the second block, BUT I have designed the third block and have almost finished stitching it as well.

Just to recap, here is a picture of the first block:

And the second (minus the writing):

And this is what the third block looks like at the moment:

The words for this block are: "At Christmas, all roads lead home".

I think stitching the writing must be my least favourite part, as I have no inclination to start the writing on the third block at this point in time either! It's so fiddly and time consuming. I actually think the writing on the second block will take me just as long as it took to stitch the rest of the block. Nevermind - I have to do it sometime I guess.

So, I am now almost 1/3 of the way through the blocks for the quilt which really isn't a bad effort at all. I must admit I am a bit stuck now though. I'm really not sure what to put on the next one... Guess I'll just wait for the inspiration to hit!
