First Four Snowmen Blocks
I've had a fun day today, cutting the rest of my flannel strips and piecing the first four snowman blocks for my lap quilt, It's Warm Inside. Flannel is great to work with, I've found. All my fabric goes through both the washer and dryer, and the flannel is practically felt when it comes out. It doesn't fray, it doesn't stretch, the pieces stick together when you sew...easy!
I finished the first four blocks and while I was ironing the last seams open and congratulating myself on a job well done...
Whoops! LOL. Time to call it a day. But I did fix it first.
Last time I said I would give all the measurements, which I am now regretting because I don't know if anyone really needs measurements for a log cabin block. These ones will finish at 12" square. But I know estimating yardage can be tricky, so I think what I'll do is write the whole thing up in a proper pattern once the quilt is done.
So, here are the first four blocks finished, with the red and green block fixed up:
The flannels are all from Connecting Threads, by the way, from their Quilter's Candy Flannel Basics collection. And still available too!
