Snowball Quilt Update

So as previously stated I am participating in the Red and White Snowball challenge and I received all my light fabrics that were part of the swap. No duplicates and a wonderful mix of fabrics. I have been saying all along that I was not going to do the red. I was planning on doing another color with the lights but I love red and I kept thinking about it and I went to my stash and I have plenty so I too am doing the red.

Yesterday was very rainy here, thank you Ida, so I ironed and cut all day. Just a little more cutting to do today and I'll get started on the sewing. But I see the sun peaking out so I may end up outside instead. You see, we New Englanders know that we'll be stuck indoors for a while soon so we tend to be out when we can to enjoy every last minute of fall and there has been some very nice weather lately so I have not been in my sewing room at all until yesterday. I am anxious to get going here. Can't wait to see everyone elses quilts.


  1. I'm itching to get started on mine, too. I chose red, too. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

  2. We have about a foot of snow here this morning in Denver! Making crafts with the kids!! Cold and Cozy!

  3. Love all the reds you have. They look like the perfect candy apple red. Today was a gorgeous day in New England. Hope it was by you too.

  4. What a pretty pile of reds! I see some Cornucopia in there...and some Christmas Presence. This will turn out nicely for sure.

  5. This weather is a bit of a roller coaster ride - never a dull moment *s*

  6. This is the perfect time of year to be working with these warm cozy red colors. What a nice selection you have. Glad you came over to the red side!

  7. Ooh, I hated red, but then I made my Red Square Dance, & I still love that quilt!
    Good luck with it allXX

  8. As a red lover, I just want you to know I'll be patiently waiting. Good things come to those that wait. At LeeHaven you have to wait forever! :O


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
