BOM #4 for Sew Sweet Simplicity

Back as promised...only 5 days later!
Making block #4 was the most enjoyable one for me. I'm not sure why, but it just flowed so smoothly and I didn't have to do any ripping out! Perhaps it's because (gasp!) I'm getting better at piecing and keeping my seam allowances consistent. Maybe it's just cuz I'm finally following the instructions! ha!

I'm still not completely sure what I'll do with these blocks once I'm done. I'll be making the 2 bonus blocks for a total of 6. I'd really like to make a lap quilt for our family room, but I want it long enough to cover my tootsies too. These colors were chosen to match our colors in that room.

Below is what Jacquelynne Steve's block #4 looks like on her blog:
I hope you can see the resemblance!
We are heading back into the teens this week, but no more snow expected for a while.
Have a terrific week and stay warm!


  1. Your colors really stand out on this block - very pretty. Glad you are getting no more snow. We are getting rain, rain, rain and it has melted nearly all our snow in the valley. Brutal winter.

  2. You use such gorgeous combinations of fabrics Kathy! A whole different look.


I love hearing your thoughts!
