January 2013 New FO Challenge

First I would like to wish everyone a very happy sewing 2013

I've already kick started January with a project from Kim Diehl's book 'Simple Charm' I love every project in this book so it was a difficult choice which to start first. 

As I'm on a learning curve I chose this project from the book

                                  Good practice for the Snowball block and the 9 patch

At this point I should point out that the nine patch are 1.5 inch squares individually cut to that size, as I'm on a learning curve  and have already tried the alternative method of sewing longer strips and then cutting to size it seemed a good idea to try different method of constructing the nine patch.  After I had cut the tiny squares I did wonder if I could sew the little blighters with accuracy, surprisingly I found sewing them to be really relaxing.

The first 120 pairs for the nine patch
Already complete 41 Snowball blocks
The fabric I'm using is from a Moda Charm pack called Harvest Moon.
So there you have it my first 2013 New FO Challenge  and WIP Wednesday

This is an awesome quilt! I really love the applique around the edges of the simple, yet highly appealing, 9-patch/snowball combination! Yeah, those are little square!
