Wow!! Yesterday was a very busy day…what with being the first day of the GO! Give Away!! SEW EXCITING!! I would have liked to have answered all the comments but sheesh…there were just too many of them!
Plus I needed to finish off those 24 blocks for part two of our GO! tutorial. Lady GO! GO! made it extremely easy and fast to cut out the strips to make the blocks… but sewing them together took forever!
But I got ’em done…all 24 of them!
For the centre block I wanted to do a wool appliqué…I needed to tone down my white wool so I did a quick tea dye…rinsed it and threw it in the dryer…
While the wool was drying I traced the snowman from a pattern that I bought from Primitive Gatherings…called Cabin Friends onto Heat and Bond light.
I then ironed it onto the back of the wool and cut out all the shapes…and like puzzle pieces they all fit together….
Presto…snowman! He looks a little wonky now but I will square him up later…
So today at Heritage Quilting I will be hand stitching Ol’Frosty onto the black flannel square. Then I will trim the block down to 9 inches and add a little border before I stitch all the blocks together…
IF ALL GOES WELL..I’m hoping to finish off this quilt today…fingers crossed!
