In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman

The postman brought me a nice package yesterday!  My last picture really didn't show the details of this very well, so here's a better one.  Can't wait to get started on this!  I think a trip to get supplies after my daughter's visit is in order.  I'm considering doing this in blue instead of the red.

I spied a quilt that really caught my eye in a magazine recently.  I normally like more classic, patchwork type quilts, and this one is definitely modern.  For some reason, this one caught my fancy, and i kept turning back to the page it was pictured on.  I'm not sure if it was the pattern, or the colors that grabbed my attention, but in any event, I gathered supplies and will be making this one for myself.  I chose colors very similar to those in the magazine; a light, medium, and dark turquoise, and a light, medium and dark blue.  That grayish looking fabric towards the bottom of the photo is actually light blue, and the muddy looking one is very crisp white.

I got all my pieces cut last night, and this morning I put together my first square.  11 more to go!

 Yesterday afternoon, I finally got around to working up my next Civil War Sampler block.  I'll be glad when the blocks composed of eleventy bazillion half square triangles are done.  No matter how carefully I cut, and no matter how slowly I stitch, I still have issues with the bias on these.


  1. I think the blue will be beautiful in the winter piece.

    1. I think so too! Every time I look at it, I picture it in blue.
