Sunday Snowmen

Today is the first day in quite a while that I spent any time in my sewing studio, and it felt great!!  First thing I picked up was Jennifer's fabrics (newbie to the Bee needs to make a good impression, right?!) I had fun sewing these and I totally fell for the little snowmen on this fabric while I did (read: may need to order some more for my stash!)  The blocks are 12.5" square, despite how they photographed! :-p

I chose the Aunt Dinah block, because it looked so much like a snowflake to me, and the Northumberland Star, a long time favorite of mine.  Jennifer, this is going to be such a fun quilt!

I'm looking forward to sewing with all of you this year.  I belong to the same MQG that Amy (U.S.) recently joined, and I had the pleasure of seeing, in person, her beautiful Octagonal Orb quilt that you all helped her make last year--it's fabulous!

Happy New Year,



  1. Doris I love the blocks! I love the snowmen too...can't wait to get my sewing machine back from repair to get started!

  2. What a treat to wake up to this post on a Monday morning, before the first day of school, after three weeks of vacation! You started my day off with a big smile Doris. (I hope the rest of my day goes as well!) Absolutely darling blocks, thank you so much! Welcome again to our group!

  3. Jennifer I had that day last Wednesday, going back to work after two weeks off...not fun. Have a good week!
