"A silly game for the silly season" - Margie

 stitched by Margie

For Helen who has made thousands of Suffolk Puffs; also known as Yoyos; and sometimes irreverently referred to as cats’ ****s!  So here is a silly version of the party game Pin the tail on the donkey.  My game  is  Pin the bottom on the cat.

'Silly Song - Silly Season' - Lorraine

'A Partridge in a Pear Tree' so says the song, among other quite way-out and impossible situations. 
Apart from that, thanks for the challenge Helen, I enjoyed making and stitching the felt pieces for the little quilt. Thanks,

Deb - 'Bah! Humbug!'

Bah! Humbug! I hate the silly season, and I found this challenge the hardest yet! I had a few different ideas and tried a few things out but didn't like any of them! Bah! Humbug! Finally settled on a very traditional Xmas tree design (not me at all!) Bah! Humbug! Tried adding ricrac and beads to the edge - didn't work! Bah! Humbug!

PS.  Helen - you know me well enough to take all of the above comments with a grain of salt!! (I hope!!) and I did enjoy doing the little trees!

Star Light Star Bright By Kerry

Late Again Kay I am sorry , I have had this quilt in my mind ready to make since you announced the theme. But been to Brisbane India and Auckland and did not want to rush it. I have used Shiny Indonesian Ikat for my stars and Indian sheen for the binding. Piecing miniatures take as long as a big quilt especially when making 1" flying geese units. Hope you enjoy a little traditional Quilt Kay.
Now just a few weeks for the next, better get my skates on.
