SnowyDay Quilt – NQC Quilt Block Challenge

So joined a new group on facebook – NQC Quilt Block Challenge and they had run a Snow Day Quilt Block challenge this winter. I fell deeply in love with the pattern they had so I set out to find fabric.

Well as things usually go, I ordered, I shopped, I reordered, I shopped other places…only to come across a bag of fabric that I had purchased some time ago for another BOM that I was in and never did. Good Grief Charlie Brown!!!

It was the perfect fabric and there was more than enough to do this challenge quilt.  So, I started cutting.

The pattern called for 3 fabrics plus background, the fabric stash I found had 4 colors and the background fabric in there had a lot of black so I decided to take this opportunity to step outside my comfort zone and use black for my background.

So, with everything laid out, I started to put my first block together. What I didn’t realize is that these blocks are 16″ – wow, now I know why I needed so much fabric.

Got my first block done and I just sat and stared at it.  REALLY!!! Usually this happens farther into the project, when I’m in Zombie mode. Not this one, first block and of course it’s in the middle of this 16″ block.  The 2 gray pieces  didn’t come together very well at the corner, but the bigger problem is that one of them is backside out. 

For the love of Pete, George and Ringo!!!  At least I caught it before the whole things was put together – which is when I usually do find them.

So I am calling it quilts – no sense in pushing the line tonight!
