Snow Days


I don't think I've posted about this yet but a couple of friends and I are doing the Crabapple Hill "Snow Days" pattern together. This is a picture of Blocks 1-3 with their alternating pieced blocks laid out . The bottom blocks are not connected to each other nor to the first row because i'm not sure that's where they go right now but they are made and ready to be assembled once all the embroidery blocks are done.
If you look closely you can see that once you do the embroidery you attach pieced blocks and then there is MORE embroidery to do on the pieced blocks as well. This pattern could be considered the "embroidery project that never ends" LOL
I have block #4 started but due to the condition of my left hand and my ability to grasp the embroidery hoop, I am a tad behind the other girls but I finally got the cast off on Tuesday so things should pick up soon.
The hand still hurts and it's still a little swollen and very stiff but i'm going to be working on getting it back to normal as quick as possible which included using the ruler and rotary cutter today to cut out 2 of the above blocks.
It's an absolutely gorgeous day here in NJ.....hope you are all enjoying this fall day !

I think these are the same blocks Michelle has been showing, and I LOVE them! Especially like the way the embroidery goes into the quilted blocks. It's going to be a stunning quilt!

I like the idea of the embroidery spilling over onto the pieced blocks and this will be a great quilt when it's finished. I'm glad your cast is off now,too.
