Last Minute Medly

I'm lucky this set of blocks had two snowballs, because I may or may not have been assembling a leaf and a snowball block this morning before heading to work.

Last minute or not, I did manage to get three blocks made this week and that's what counts.  It's finally starting to look like a quilt and not just a random collection of blocks!

I had the opportunity to wander around a new quilt store and, despite all the tempting fabric, I only came home with this metallic and green Stonehenge.  How was I supposed to turn down a sale like that?  But I have a Christmas wall-hanging on the to do list this year, so it should be used shortly.

Last but not least I picked out some new floss to try in my cross-stitch sampler; there's a very light grey, a shimmery white, a silver metallic, and a softer white (winter white).  Snow white didn't show up on my Aida too well, so hopefully one of these options will do the trick.

Linking up with Let's Bee Social.


  1. Yea, it's amazing how much quilting you can squeeze in. Very nice blocks.

  2. That winter white embroidery thread looks lovely. I wish I could get up early in the mornign to squeeze in a bit of sewing before work - never seems to happen!

  3. Always a good day when you can grab a bargain! Great quilt blocks too

  4. Your quilt is coming together nicely. I love those maple leaf blocks. Looking good! Hope one of your new flosses does the trick!

  5. Your blocks are lovely Rachel! Love the threads--I love the silver! So pretty!

    Would love for you to stop by and link this up to Fabric Frenzy Friday!
