November and December block update

Christie Leigh was my November partner, and this lovely block arrived in the post on Friday, Christie Leigh also spoilt me with a cute fat quarter of pretty blue Christmas fabric. I love the fussy cut zig zags on the star.
My partner for December was Margaret from Medowie NSW who requested a colourful Dresden plate on black. This was my first ever Dresden plate and I loved how easily the block came together. When I was googling the pattern for this block I found a tutorial for any easy way to make them from a charm pack, and as I have a stack of charm packs in my stash, I think I may have it have a play.
