Tuesday I took the snowman wall-hanging to Day Bee for input about whether to add more snowflake quilting. They advised yes so I added a few simple free-motion snowflakes in strategic places and then decided enough. I added the binding and sewed on 3 dimensional details I had to remove while working ( large buttons, bell and pompoms). I also added a couple of snowflake buttons to the most unadorned snowman. Now UFO # 7 is finished. These snowmen were part of a guild block exchange years back; I don’t know who made the one on the top left. I will ask at guild next week when I show it and hopefully someone will know.
Today was sew day for my church quilt group. I played with scrap 2 ½” strips and made my version of lego (compost) blocks. They were very easy and I like the look. I’ll show a picture later. We had a request for some small pillow forms to be stuffed. I pulled out from our storage about 12 orphan blocks. We picked out backing fabric, sewed and they are ready to be stuffed. They were a perfect use for the orphan blocks.
Early Friday morning I will head to Jefferson, NC for the Ashe County Piecemakers Guild show. I hope to have some wonderful photos from there when I return Monday.
