I just got started on the first block of Quilt Doodle Designs 2014 BOM. It is a cute row of snowmen. I started out with a beautiful fat quarter of snowflake batik - I made 4 snowmen and THEN I figured out that I would not have enough fabric to make the whole row, so I started it over. Now I love the design that Cindy made I did take some shortcuts by not piecing the snowman and using Lori Holt's snowball method of cutting and attaching (in this example) four 2.5" blue squares on the corners of a 6.6" white square - by sewing across the a line drawn from corner to corner of the blue pieces and then folding it over - you get the same shape with a lot less sewing - things went very quickly.
I hope all the other blocks in this quilt are this cute. I have never done a "row along" and I am hoping that the rest of this quilt keeps going that direction.
Well here are my little guys. I just layed the button on the strip as if I were to actually sew them on it would make the actual quilting much more difficult later. Been there - done that.
Oh can't wait to see the next block!
Thank you Cindy you are the best!
Now I am going to get started on Blogger Girl BOM.
Maybe I am crazy??
