Sew I am sewing along with Pat Sloan and her 182 day Summer to Winter solstice...

I decided on using the beautiful pack of fabrics that Mari sent me...
I also added some of my Xmas bargain shopping from spotlight. The lighter fabric has snowflakes on it. This will be used as my background...
Here is the story of how I got the fabric

Pat is putting up a 12" block every week Sew we can join in and sew along... I will sew as many blocks as I can with this fabric until it runs out. Wether I get 1 or 2 quilts out of it we will have to wait and see. There are 25 blocks in the sew along....

Anyway now for my blocks....

  6. Whew. When I started reading I thought you found a QA that I would probably have to join too. Like I said, whew. It's one I'm already doing. So glad we're sewing "together". LOVE your fabrics.

  11. Pretty colour combinations, Jo. I went to Spotlight yesterday and bought three fabrics, yardage in case I get as far as making my scrap blocks into quilts. Your blocks are looking great.

  13. And... I've just downloaded the blocks for the Solstice Challenge. Am tossing up between an old fashioned look or a modern black/white look - just not sure.....
