Today I worked on this snowflake block. Ugh... not happy with my original plan.
This is going to Jack's Basket as part of Hands 2 Help. They are looking for smaller quilts -- 36" square approximately. The snowflake and the grey border are about 18" so I thought the corner 9 patches and border would bring it up closer to 36". I often ask Sharon or Beth for advice on quilts that are not going together well. Sharon nixed the softer blue -- too blah. And the 9 patches are out of scale with the original block. Darn, I hate it when she is right. Back to the drawing board. I'm going to see what else might go around that block. Hum, what are the chances of me having any snowman fabric in the right color? So this one needs to stay on the goals list this week.
My goals list did a great job of keeping me focused this week. Everything got moved forward.

I don't have much going on this week so there is a good chance I can get a good start and perhaps finish some of these items.
I'm linking up with my regular parties: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Main Crush Monday, and Moving It Forward. I'll check back later to add the other link. I enjoyed time checking other blogs. It's addictive and I come away with so many great ideas. Hope you check out a few too.
