Since we received another snow day on Friday, I spent most of the morning making 6.5" blocks for Marilyn who has April. I am working early this month on my blocks! She requested 6.5 or 12.5" blocks. The one above is a single irish chain.
The next block is a pinwheel and I love the blues against the pink.
Finally, I made a bearclaw. It was a lot of fun making the smaller blocks. I felt like they came together quickly and I could use more patterns. I also felt like I had more freedom in the choice of pattern to use because it was not going to be a large 12.5" block. I don't know if that makes sense, but it was liberating.
I will leave you with a couple of pictures of the snow as of Friday morning when the sun came out and the snow stopped falling. We received 11" in our backyard!
