December Quilting-Snowball Block

I know. It’s January. I didn’t do a very good job at posting about our December quilting get together, did I? As you may recall, our group decided that we were going to make a block each month, and that block would be chosen and taught by the person who won the fat quarter exchange. That person also chose which fabric we traded for the next month, taking home an extra stack of fabric for herself!

Leslie won the draw, (she chose for us to exchange Civil War fabrics) so she chose the ‘Snowball’ pattern, brought the fabric, already cut, and all we had to do was sew them together.

It only took a few minutes, and Leslie’s ‘Snowballs’ were all sewn together. She was able to take them home to make a quilt top. I can’t wait to see if she brings it back tomorrow all finished and quilted!

As you can see, I did a poor job of taking photos….only two. We had a lot crammed into our day in December. We had a December birthday to celebrate, Christmas gift exchange, potluck, and lots of laughter.

…and we get to do it all again tomorrow!!!

Like I said before; I think it is neat you have a group of friends to quilt with, Michelle! It does always sound like a good time whenever you guys get together. Enjoy tomorrow's!
