WIP Wednesday

If you follow me over on Instagram then you already know I spent some time last week getting started on my Snow Blossoms quilt.  If you want to sew along use the #snowblossomsalong over on Instagram.  I'd love to see your quilts as well.  I tried something a little different for me with this one and chose a solid other than snow.  I know shocking!  I'll admit when the art gallery tender green first arrived I worried it was a little too mint to match the Nordika fabrics.  But once I had my first block together I was sold.

I love that it is just a little different from what you might expect.  Every block I make quickly becomes my new favorite.  These blocks are fairly easy to make-they do involve that stitch and flip method that I LOVE so much.  It's still not my favorite thing in the world but at this size it's not too bad.  I have a few points that aren't perfect but overall I'm happy with the way it is coming along.

I have my first 5 blocks done but that might be it for me for a little while.  I had to take a pause from this quilt to make up some backings so I could get a few more finishes checked off the list.  I'm sending off 3 different quilts to be quilted by a long arm.  So backing making was in full force at my house the last few days.  All 3 of these quilts are related to Bonnie & Camille somehow-either through the use of one of their patterns, fabrics, or both.  It looked like a regular old Bonnie & Camille party at my house the other night.

That's it for me head on over to Lee's to see what everyone else is up to this week.


  1. I'm visiting from WIP Wednesday :-) Your blocks are great and not too minty at all...

  2. I love the colors! They go together so well, but aren't too "matchy matchy"


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
