another snow storm visiting!
Last night after sunset, the snow started falling...wet and heavy.
Eight inches, then some freezing rain, and today, more snow.
Today, we ended up under Level2 Snow Emergency,
with most schools and businesses closed,
and with 10 1/2 inches of the white stuff.
To celebrate today's new snow,
I made a quilt block
wait for it...
|Thanks to designer Nancy, of Blogging, Near Philadelphia|
who put the block instructions and tutorial on her blog!
Isn't it a GREAT block?
I think I will make a few more and make a
snowy, Winter table runner.The block finishes at 10 inches, which is apropos, don't you think?,
what with our new 10 1/2 inches of snow.
Finally, notice the stick off to the right of the block?
That's my new favorite quilting notion,
called the STRIP STICK and I picked it up a LQS.
It's flat bottomed, half-round on top & in a muslin sleeve.
You put it under your block seams (rounded side up)
when you press, and like magic,
the seams press open very easily.
I especially like it for all of my small block pressing.
It makes it so easy!
It's a great gadget to have on hand
and worth the $10 price.
And, no, I am not affiliated with or compensated in any way
for sharing this info, I just like it that it makes pressing seams easier.So,
Back to some stitching for me this evening.
And, if you visit Nancy's, Near Philadelphia blog, tell her I said HI!
