View from my patio door
A fitting picture to go with my BOM blocks


Found the draft! Three cheers for dumb luck!

Quilt Doodle Doodles BOM
I am doing the BOM quilt from the Quilt Doodle Doodles blog. I competed the sewing on the snowman block for Jan. They still need their eyes and noses. The pattern called for 2.5" squares to finish at 2". However, I want it to be a wall-hanging.  Since the design is based on squares, it was easy to size it down from 2" to 1". I drew the pattern on graph paper in order to eliminate as many seams as possible added 1/2" for seam allowances on each piece. It worked! The idea of eliminating seams, came from my friend Linda at Linda Quilts. She posted the blocks on her blog. 

Sew here are my snowmen, actually snowballs.

It took a deep search through my stash to find the fabric for the Cozy Cabin block. Also, it took two tries to do the roof, but I like the result.

Back again next month if not before.
Happy stitching,
