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!

That is really a lot of work with the stitching and piecing but it will be so beautiful when it is all together.
