One Cute Snowfella

Isn't he the sweetest snowman?
The Old Cupboard Door blog is having a giveaway for him.
I just love this fella and wish I had this kind of talent!
Willa makes amazing prim style treasures!
Oh, I guess I'm suppose to mention that you should go over
there for a chance to win it.
 But I just want you to know that it would
look great in my home!

I haven't opened my bundle of Nine Dots yet...
but I am chomping at the bit to start my Swoon quilt with it!

I have been working on this guy off and on
... forever... and it looks like I have a couple
more blocks to finish. When I get it done I will tell
you the story of this quilt. It's a "evolution" quilt.

(Sandie, if you are reading this... didn't you make one using the MBS pattern and add sashing)?

My main focus this week:

I have been working on my blocks for the Studly & the Mrs. quilt along over at
Charming Chatter with Kellie.

Just four more blocks to go...
and then the flying geese border!
(I'm behind the rest of the quilt along-ers)
Here is a picture of Kellie's quilt.
(she's ahead of everybody)
See how it gets a thin sashing between the blocks? And then another sashing before the
flying geese, and on the outer border also. I was thinking of adding another border to
the outside that would contrast with the light borders.

The snowman is darling, but those quilts are amazing. I think you are making fabulous progress - even if you think you are behind.

Love that snowman! He's fabulous!

Your quilts are amazing. I added sashing and cornerstones to the MBS quilt.

The snowman is cute but your Studley quilt is even better. I love the tones you have. The pinwheel one looks really pretty too. Looking forward to seeing these finished. The beginning story had me going too. Thanks for the reminder. So many of us take our veterans for granted. K-
