More Snow Days!
You can see in the photo below that there are many, many blocks to piece for this quilt. After the blocks are pieced, I will attach them in sections and do the additional stitching (extending the trees onto the pieced border blocks), then I will sew the sections together. It is going to take some serious time to complete. And, let us not forget about the custom quilting on this one! I will show you blocks as I get them done...just wanted to prepare you to not expect a finish in the very near future.
Here is the pattern cover...
Here's what I did yesterday...
With the knowledge that 'snow days' is going to be an ongoing project for quite some time (I really want to get it done by next winter), I really feel the need to have other projects to work on. Really? So, I went ahead and cut out some 3 1/2 inch squares from one of the groupings of fabric from Cathy...see this post.
These prints just seemed to belong together, so how could I resist? I may have a few in my stash to add to them. I will for sure add some white squares to make it a nice baby quilt size.
Gosh, could a girl have too many wip's? Well, perhaps.
At any rate, I am having fun.
Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
