Lucy, Lucy, Lucy. I had no idea you were going to be so large. I guess I have been working with such small projects lately, your size kind of surprised me. Don't worry though, we are going to get along fine. If I can get you put together. Your bottom rows are going to be on the floor at this rate, since you don't fit on my design wall!
Making the blocks for this project has been quite soothing. I put an audiobook in my iPod and have been stitching happily away this week. The 25 patch blocks go together with easy strip piecing. If you press according to Carrie's directions, all the seams abut perfectly and you don't have to pin. The snowball blocks practically make themselves in just a couple of hours.
All the time i have been sewing, it keeps crossing my mind that this is the best scrap buster pattern I have seen in ages. Just imagine what this would look like in multi colors. I need to revisit my scrap bins and cut some 1 3/4 inch strips with making another of these quilts in mind.
My goal this weekend is to sew the blocks together, so maybe this big girl will be finished by Monday!
