WIP Wednesday - Snowflake Shimmer QAL

Time for Step 3 of the Snowflake Shimmer QAL hosted by Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl.  In theory, making square-in-square blocks is easy...but a very time-consuming process.

Just four blocks of this colour combination.  Piece of cake.


Eight for this colour combination.  I can do this.


And then...21 blocks of this colour combination.


After a few evenings of sewing and ironing, I was very glad to see the end of these blocks.


There are only two more steps in the QAL, so the end is in sight.  I'm looking forward to seeing how my fabric choices work in the pattern.

You can follow my progress here:




**Alert** - I'm hosting Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday this week.  Make sure you come back to link up your finishes.  I have a great finish to share with you on Friday.

I hear you on the first groupings of blocks being easier than the last! I am making my second version this time and it felt like it took longer the second time, but I think I just knew what to expect, LOL. Your blocks look great, and I am so excited to share more soon!

Your colour scheme is so different from the others. Bravo for taking the less travelled road. I really love it as I am a big fan of orange. Can't wait to see more of this quilt. Great job so far. ;^)

Great progress so far! I'm excited to see how your quilt comes together since your colors are definitely less common than the other choices I have seen. Keep up the awesome work! :)

Really cool colour choice! So different and contrasting and bright. I am very curious about the final quilt.

These are looking great. It seems like this QAL is going by very quickly. I should probably get these sewed up this weekend.

I love these fabrics! I have some fun Halloween fabrics in these colors and seeing your project makes me itch to start myself a Halloween quilt. But I must resist. Maybe next year. ;-)
