A Little Porch Time & more snow of course



Started my first block from Lynda Hall's A Little Porch Time, don't like to sew behind the machine, and definitely don't like sewing triangles, so wool was the answer for this block. I made the backing block a little bigger until I hand sew all the wool triangles and then will size the block. Am using a cross stitch with wool thread to pull the triangles together. I think I will like this since i intend to use wool for most of the applique. It's a great prim quilt.

See those beautiful clear blue skies behind the snow covered trees, it means cold, cold temps.

  4. I love your block. I don't have enough wool to do a whole block like this but hope to put in bits and pieces on some of the other blocks. Stay warm.
