I've been working on several projects this week. I do a few minutes on each here and there.
I've been wanting to make an apple quilt for a long time now. Although I have made many quilts over the years, I've never made a snowball block before. I followed a pattern for the snowball part.
The top section and the leaves I made up myself. Once I applique the leaves and tidy up the edges, I will work out how much I want to add to the sides to make them into squares. Then I will make patchwork squares the same size. I will applique the leaves by machine next. I am just making it up as I go.
I usually only work on this at my monthly stitching group, but it has been calling to me lately. I have a jelly roll that I think would go well with this, but I won't be making it as shown on the pattern by Anni Downs. I have a Natalie Bird bag pattern that I might use instead :) There are a few flowers left and this will be finished. I used DMC 4210, it is variegated and one of my favourites.
I've also been working on hexies for the row along quilt. I have made 30 so far and that is not enough. I think I will modify my original idea a bit....still a secret for now though.
It has been very cold lately. Boy 14 is from FNQ, so I think he is really feeling it. I tucked him in with wool blankets above and below him. He didn't move when I turned the light on for pics!
I hope you will leave a guess for a chance to win Travelling Treasures. I would love to see more bloggers playing along. To win, just reply with a guess for how much Boy 14 weighs. The hint is that he weighs more than half of what I weigh. You can read more in my previous post. xx debbie
