Snowy Day Quilt II

Well last weekend we were on a day trip up north and on the way back it was early enough that I got to stop at a couple of small quilt shops.  It was awesome.  One shop had lots of finished quilts that are so fun to look at and see how they look done (not at my house, that’s what makes it so fun).  There were not many kits or samples at that shop, but I still love stopping there – lots of Up North Feel to it.

Then the second shop – they always have lots of kits available. Which are my weakness.  I swear, every single project they have on their walls screams out to me to take home and make. But I had to refrain, because I know how much is already here to do.

3 yard bundles from LQS – best thing ever in my book

I got all the way to the back of the store and I broke. They had 2 quilts up on the wall as samples of a 3 yard and a 5 yard quilt. And quess what – they had fabric bundles …. ready to go …  How the devil and I supposed to pass those up.  I picked up three of them.

Once I got them home I just knew that I had to make another Snowy Day Quilt with the bright purple & green pack. With a little white added, ok a lot of white it seems, it came together so cutely.

 

I so love the colors, it would have taken me a month to put together these fabrics for this quilt. It it just perfect.

But it was pretty close.  I have a small, small piece of green left (I even had to piece together 2 sqaures to complete one of these large ones of the green), and when I was sewing the little bit of sashing around the outside, I ran out of bobbin – 32″ from the end, and this is what I ended up with for top thread…  I don’t think there is 24″ left from here to the needle.  Good grief for cutting it close.

So because I had some extra fabric I decided to use on of the blocks (that I didn’t use in the original pattern) to make a small kid size throw blanket.  I can’t wait to get this one done, it so darn cute.
