Welcome to the "I Believe In Snowmen" Sew Along 2014! Installment #8!

Bunny Hill has a really sweet redwork snowmen BOM that is now available and would make a fabulous sew along for 2014. Visit this link to see close ups of it.

http://www.bunnyhilldesigns.co...ls/?product=ibelsnow

During the sew along, two of the redwork blocks will be due as well as two of the accompanying red/white block sections.... We will have to do it this way to be finished in time to use them for the 2014 Christmas holidays.

There is a map outline of the blocks for each installment included with your patterns. Please keep this handy and refer to it often so you do not work incorrect blocks for any current installment so your name is in for that prize.

I will be acquiring prizes from various quilt shops and everyone who uploads their photos on time each installment, will get their name in the pot for the prize offered that installment. You can only win a prize once in a 3 month period.

The owner of Bunny Hill has a video on the Fat Quarter Shop website giving a few pointers for the blocks so please go visit this link...

http://fatquartershop.blogspot...owmen-quilt-kit.html

Here is the schedule I have set up in order for us to have our quilts finished and ready to use for Christmas 2014.

I will start a brand new thread for each installment as we go. PLEASE do not upload any other photos but the current blocks we are working on. Thank you.

The red triangle border optional... you will not be required to put it on your quilt...but I do think it sets everything off. You can add it, leave it off, or add another style border in its place... but your quilt must have at least one finishing border on it. Smile

12. November 5 - December 10 --- Photos of finished quilts WITH binding are to be posted on December 11th by 7 a.m. Eastern time.

Then enjoy your quilts for the 2014 Christmas season!

IF you cannot upload photos to the forum as we work each installment, you can email or pm me a photo of your block and I can upload it for you. IF you need to do this do not wait until the last minute to email me the photo. ALL emailed photos should be in my inbox the day before they are due. This gives me time to re-size and get them posted on time.

Ladies... be sure to get your 3 star blocks completed if you have not done those yet. By the next 2 installments we will be doing the top and bottom borders.

quiltingnewbie.. did you get your star blocks or did you do them last time..

sjo... do you have your 3 star blocks finished as well?

This catches us up to speed for this round... If you showed any of the star blocks previously..please remind me : (Photos of EMBROIDERED BLOCKS #15 and #16 AND the 2 sets of 3 star blocks that are put together vertically and the one star block in the lower section)

I just found out that I repeated making three of the embroidery blocks! Guess I will have to make a table runner or something out of them. Crazy - that's what I get for having my project in two places instead of one.

i'm STILL following the ORIGNINAL instructions that said this month is the last 2 embroidery blocks.. 1 log cabin block.. and the star block from the lower part of the applique section...

i'll do the 2 sets of 3 star blocks with installment 9 as originally instructed.. you had said that would be fine.. and that with installment 10 everyone would be back on the original track..

i just finished installment 8 (original version).. and will trim and post pics tomorrow.. edit... i don't know what i was thinking when i said i'd trim and post today... i have my entire downstairs torn up as they are putting in new floors for me.. and it's been this way since monday... HOPEFULLY.. they will finish up today and i can start to put my house back together.. lol... maybe over the weekend i can get to the trim and posting of this months installment..

The red triangle border is optional, is that the flying geese one? If I wanted to do prairie points instead?

Do we have to sew the blocks together like the instructions have or can we be cr8tve? I was thinking of a different layout.

yes.. by installment 10 we will be out of the mess I got us all in... sorry ladies.

Jackie.. You do not even have to add the border but if you do, if you want to change it to prairie points, that is perfectly fine as well as setting them in your own design.. Just as long as all of the blocks are sewn together in to a top, it doesnt really matter how it is done. Smile

I started a new job, 2 graduations, a wedding well need I say more? Life goes on, but I did get my 8th installment finished. My blue blocks anyway. When I get my green ones done I'll post them.


Sew, sew, and sew some more that's my motto!

We leave today, me and Libby, to take Allie home and stay for a week to visit. it will be good to get back home and back to my normal routine... if I have a normal routine. lol

Our winner for this round is none other than ivy_cottage81!! You have won the 25.00 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop! Congrats!
