Wheeeeeeeee! The 14th and final embroidered block of the Snow Days quilt has been completed!!! Full steam ahead... bound and determined... with a pot of coffee beside me... I sat down in my stitching chair at 11:58 am yesterday... and with only one potty break (yah... coffee does that! lol!) I pulled the last stitch at 3:58 pm. Another... wheeeeeeeeeeee! :-)
Now comes the fun part of piecing! And, learning to piece at the same time! lol! My history of quilting is short and sweet... First, I made a rag quilt. You can see that here.... and next was a 20" square mini quilt... and tried some minor hand quilting with that one. You can see that one here.
Now... my original intentions with this Snow Days BOM was to complete each month as they arrived... *grin*... but, because I signed on for 3 BOM's all at the same time... I fell a bit behind schedule... *blush*... But, the thing of it is, each month also included the material for the pieced parts. And, I tried the first month's pieced part here... but, they didn't turn out so good. Soooooooo, I asked the ladies at the Quilted Crow if they could ship me another Block 1 fabric bundle... and they did... it has been safely tucked away with the other fabrics... and, hopefully (throughout the past year) I have read enough tips and watched enough YouTube videos on piecing to finally get it right this time! lol!
In the last post I had promised some red, white & blue... and some strawberries... well... they ain't done yet! ;-) I'll be stitching some tonight and promise that the next update will contain some "seasonally appropriate stitches". :-)
Until next time... stay healthy & keep on smiling!
