Snowball and nine patch quilt

I'm not sure if I fully understand the concept of Pinterest but thought I would join and find out more, two hours later I was still trying to find a user name that hadn't already been taken, I've decided I must be unimaginative as all my made up names were already taken, to think I could have spent the two hours happily quilting.....

I've made good progress with the Kim Diehl quilt from the book ' Simple Charm'  

I've still to sew the leaves on, I'm not sure if I should do this on the machine or by hand.  I have omitted the corner leaves which to my eye seemed cluttered and used fabric rather than the suggested wool felt.


Whilst searching the web I came across this block of the month from Sulky which looked a fun project you can find the link on the left hand bar.

Oh, my gosh! Getting a user name that's available and then problems later with forgotten passwords, etc. . . Sometimes interacting with online forums can be SO FRUSTRATING, eh? I'm still unable to reaccess my Flickr account, and too much sewing to bother with getting it to work. Oh, well! ;D

Love your quilt, and that BOM is wonderful. Sorely tempted!!!!

Your quilt looks great. The colors are charming.

I took your suggestion to try Inktense pencils. I put them in my goddess quilt-a-long hair and will put them in my colored pencil test this week. I put a link to your blog in my current blog post--thanks for the idea!
