Region 16 Block of the Month (or week) 2021
Bright lights and strings of cheerful decorations herald the coming of Christmas. I love the lights, gleaming, flashing or twinkling as night comes ever earlier. As a child I made paper chains and crepe paper streamers to decorate the home, lights were kept for the Christmas tree. Today, strings of LED lights are cheap to run and very reliable, no more checking individual bulbs to find the faulty one! Decorations are shiny and bright, often designed to reflect light. My love of textiles extends to Christmas decorations, so shiny fabric is perfect for this time of year.
