Darlene @ Quilts by Darlene is hosting a Mystery Quilt that I signed up for. If you'd like to join in, it's not too late. You'll have all of January to do Step One. Below is my version of Step One, measuring 24 1/2" by 28 1/2". This will be a work-in-progress for 8 to 9 months, an honest "what's-in-my-closet-to-use" quilt.
The center 4 1/2" snowball blocks are from FQs I had in my "Magic Closet". They are Blackbird's Chelsea Boutique. I recently made DIL a long scarf from the charm pack I had of this line.
The off-white is simply something I had from Hobby Lobby.
And, the brown, tweed(ish) looking outer border is also from my stash, "Bonnie Blue's America" by Paula Barnes (as it reads on the selvage). I bought this on clearance from FQS a long time ago.
And below: Will, the "big one", and Bailey getting tired of watching me sew.
