Potpourri That I Hope Doesn't Stink Up a Room


Well, I started out with Flowering Snowballs because Molly Flanders Makerie was having a Quilt Along. 
I've been sloooowly quilting along making my Flowering Snowballs out of my cherry pie themed fabrics and different cherry colored reds/pinks. 

I want to make a large bed-sized quilt. 
These are the latest 13 blocks I've made and I think I now have 32 of them. 

Unfortunately I'm easily distracted so it takes me awhile to finish quilts (or enough blocks to make a quilt) and I have lots of UFOs. 
Latest distraction? I've been meaning to try some large 15 inch Road to Lampasas blocks in 30s fabrics. 

Here's my trial blocks. I like them. So now I'll be making more whenever the urge strikes. 


And I used up some more 4 patches to make more Bear Foot blocks.  I've been using up swapped four patches but ran out of them (but am expecting another swap batch very soon) after I made that block with deep purple HSTs so whipped up a few of my own from 2.5 inch scraps. 

I need to count. I may have enough Bear Foot blocks for a large quilt. 

What have you been working on?

Your flowering snowball blocks are looking great. I saw that quilt along and wanted to do it (even bought some templates) but got distracted with a different top and never got around to it. Some day!

You sew like I do. A bit here and bit there! :)

I don't think of it as distraction, but inspiration! All of your blocks are wonderful.... so bright and cheery.
