When I was straightening things out in the basement some time ago, I came across these big flying geese blocks that I had put together several years ago. With them was some fabric I had bought for the icicles and snowflakes that is quite icey looking. I put them up on the wall and thought - why don't I finish this little thing. So I found a pattern for an easy snowflake on the internet and cut those out along with some icicles. I hadn't spotted the fact that I needed an extra block at the bottom before but when it came time to fuse the snowflakes, etc., on it became obvious. Look what I found in my stash to use as that bottom block - perfect! I had planned to use the mottled blue as a border until I found the snowy looking fabric at the bottom of the blues box. I am totally pleased with it. Still have to sew on the borders then it will be ready to sandwich and quilt. Will raw edge applique the fused pieces as I quilt.
This is the picture found on the web that I printed out and used as a guide for the little hanging. My finished one will be approximately 15 x 40.
Here is the tree in front of my house--all golden and glorious. Dropping its leaves at a rapid rate now, it is an ash tree and one of the first to loose its leaves. Fall really is here! Enjoy.
