Shoveling and Quilting :)

I have more snowflakes! I made all three versions of Snowflake 3. . . ummm, almost all of it. . . I ran out of fabric for the top strips on Version 1. . . I still haven't decided how I'm going to go about making that right. . . ugh! Anyway, here they are!

I have had several thoughts about how I am going to turn these into a quilt. . .

I thought I had a plan for a quilt. . . and different options keep presenting themselves as I work on these . . . :)

I know this looks wonky but once I figure out what I am going to do about not having enough fabric.... It will all be good :)

Here they are all together. Now I have 7. . . . 11 more to go :)
I have been quilting like crazy on Off Course. I have the flying geese done, now to do the negative space (yes, that's more than half of the quilt LOL). Here's a close up of a couple of the geese - the quilting is difficult to photograph in the black but this gives you an idea. . . and might explain why it took DAYS to quilt - quilting black on black is really hard on the eyes!!

I really like how this is looking!

OK, going to set Rosanne back up for quilting - AHHH Negative Space :D 

Linking up with Joanne for the Snowalong link up. Make sure you link up if you have been having a little snowstorm in your sewing room!! Also linking up with Kelly for NTT

Until next time, keep on quilting!

  1. I'm really digging your snowflakes. I hope you come up with a good solution for running a bit low on fabric. And I can't wait to see more of your quilting on Off Course! :)

  2. Off Course is going to be stunning! I can see why it has been taking a while. Love your snowflakes :) Thanks for linking up!

  3. Love those snowflakes. Intrigued as to what you are going to make with them!

  4. Snow is piling up at your house. I hope you can find some similar fabric. And I love how your quilting is looking

  5. Maybe you can rip off the other two flakes' borders, cut them in half, piece in a bit of a new fabric that works and then use that new fabric in the rest of the quilt?? I don't know; okay just smack me. Loving Off Course. Your quilting is beautiful, and I cannot imagine how hard that would be to quilt black on black, well yes, I kind of can as just machine stitching the binding down on Watercolour Steps drove my eyes a little buggy...and that was nuthin' compared to the detail you're doing. Amazing and inspiring as always.

  6. Isacord makes a deep deep deep plum color (color number 2944) that looks almost black but has a slight plum tinge (think punk rocker deep plum lipstick). I mean, it looks fabulous on black! Easier on the eyes too...and you can get a 5000 meter spool on EBay for $ shipping too. Everything is looking great!

  7. Your flakes are looking good! I made one too but that is enough for me, lol. I forgot to share on the blog but I'll do that next week.

  8. That will be totally worth it though - beautiful quilting!

  9. Burr its cold outside! HaHa-- They have turned out wonderful. Necessity usually has a way of working things out--I hope you discover a plan!
