Great sewing weather for a group project

We are spending the holiday up in Sunriver Oregon and woke up to snow. It's just such a beautiful scene, I couldn't help but share it!
Max loves the snow!

As far as sewing goes, I've started this 25-patch quilt using French General jelly rolls.
Here is one block:
The blocks get sashing and cornerstones. I'll post instructions for making this easy block tomorrow. I made a quilt like this earlier this year but gave it to my son so I decided I wanted my own.i just love the quilt!!
 My friend Claire is going to make one too-- kind of a group project. Anyone interested??
I'll post a picture of the finished quilt when I get home. 


  1. Love snowy scenes like that!
    Oh, I'd love to make that quilt, but I projects! Do you believe me? : )

  2. Hello Randy !!
    I am in holidays in the Alps were live my parents and there is lot of snow here too !!
    Love your fabrics and your block is so cute. I will wait for the photo of your finishing quilt !
    Thank you !!! :)))

  3. Still green here. The snow is beautiful and so is your block. I love French general fabric.

  4. French General is one of my favorite fabrics--no snow here yet

  5. Thanks for sharing some pictures with snow. We have a very VERY green New Year Day. We even don't have some snow left in the ditch or between the trees. Hubby bought a snow blower on Boxing day and we are thinking we should have bought a lawn mower instead! And I live in Ontario Canada! So I am very disappointed but it's easier for the travelers, so Yeah! Enjoy the sewing. Love FG fabric!

  6. LOVE newly fallen snow and the muffled "sounds" it brings with it. Great pictures, especially those with Max! Not much snow here in Northern Michigan (considering we had over 260+ inches last year) but winter is still ahead of us so I anticipate getting more soon. LOVE the block and would like your instructions; am definitely "game" for inclusion in a project. Add me to the group! Linda

  7. Not much snow here--just ugly cold temps. But that's winter, so I should just shut my mouth and not complain. The quilt sounds tempting, but I'm doing my best to work on UFOs and WIPs only for a while. But I'll have to peek in now and then to see what's going on. I might just have to follow along with you. We'll see.
    Happy New Year, Randy.
