Christmas in August


Here are my pieced blocks for the  ...



Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along




I started this quilt Here withe these three fabric selections,
 with plans to use the red for the binding.


When it came time to cut, though, I decided to make a personal design choice
to add a fourth fabric to this quilt.

I really love the way the red and light green play together.

I also changed the center square fabric for the corner blocks.

This quiltalong is designed by

Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl

and she has a great

Square in a Square Tutorial

for making these blocks.



I saved the block trimming for this morning when my eyes were good.

Katniss helped. 

Katniss was not pleased when I slid the last of the blocks out from under her
where she was curled and comfy.



Katniss says, "These are MY blocks."

Katniss and I are linking up today with the

Step 3 Linky Party

We are ready for the next step!
