Christmas in August ~ Part 2

Katniss and I have been busy.

By the time I got the rows pieced into the flimsy,
most of the light was gone on this rather gray day.

The beautiful lustre of these fabrics are lost in this photo.

I shall have to take it outside for a better photo
when I have the quilting done.

I really love this design and will sew it again.

Maybe in fairy frost.
My hubby loves this fabric line.

Maybe scrappy in blue and white snowflake fabrics.
I have a lot of these in my stash from a swap a few years back. 

Maybe in a very different theme.

This pattern is well written and goes together perfectly.

The only sewing change was to cut 8.5" squares of the background fabric and sew the corners into a four block unit and then cut a double row wide piece to fit between.

Time for September's projects.

September is going to be 

Farm Girl Month!

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!

I am the September designer for the

I am at the making the test block stage.
