If you missed the sign-up for the 4×5 Modern Quilt Bee, there’s a waiting list. Also Quarter 3 starts in March. . .
Fall/Winter quarter has past and I’m way, way, way late in mailing my blocks! If you aren’t on Instagram/twitter – the block pattern I choose was made by the taleted Joanna of Shape Moth. The block is called Snow Cristal. It’s a great paper piece block.

The parts I struggled with is:
- I didn’t add the quarter inch to each piece at the beginning – main reason was I didn’t read the directions correctly.
- And then making the block 12.5×12.5 was a bit frustrating but I followed Lee’s instructions from Freshly Pieced and squared that sucker up.
The other quilt I started working on was the next one in Practical Guide to Patchwork Project – Valentine.
The colors that I’m going with it Yellow, Grey, Navy Blue, and Green. I was able to finish a quarter of the blocks this weekend and I’m really loving how it’s looking so far! If you have scraps this is a great pattern to use it with!!!
All n’ all . . I had a great productive weekend! Did you???
P.S. I’ve been asking the general crafty public if they have xmas fabric scraps they they want to get rid of if so please let me know. thanks!
