A 6-inch Square Quilt, Snail's Trail, and Bibelot

I had such great plans for today, and for the most part things went really well.


Sunni has a challenge to use 1-9 six-inch blocks to make a project, and I just had to see what I could come up with.  I used six Rosebud blocks to make a wall hanging.  It is a good thing I took a picture previously because I was planning to complete the quilting today and didn't quite finish due to this...


I was sewing along happily and when I went to iron all these lovely blocks I realized something.  They are supposed to look like a "T" not a "Y."  So, I am very patiently taking three seams out and will start to sew them back together at some point tonight.  :)


And of course I had to work on my block of the day which is the Snail's Trail.  I made two instead of one as when I was cutting the first block out there were so many left over triangles I figured I would just make two.  My son loves this block and is asking for a quilt in his color choices.  Seems my "to do" list is growing by the day.  That is okay, it makes it all the more fun when the whole family is involved.  This is a 12-inch block and is number 91 of 366.

I'm going to head back to the sewing room as soon as I get all the taking apart done, not my favorite thing to do, but I'm just sure there is another lesson in this for me.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Love your rosebud block. I hope the snails trail is easier than it looks when it comes to making a whole quilt.....

Love your rose wall hanging. I've finally decided to give some of the farmers wife blocks a go too so might have to try and set myself a challenge of at least two blocks a week LOL. Don't know that I could get one a day done like your wonderful calendar challenge.

Love your red fabrics, I've never seen the snail trail before, most interesting, I'd like to see how that's done.
I made some simple quilted cell phone covers in orange and turquoise dinasour material for my kids Tracfone LG800G smart phones to protect their touch screens. $6/mnth for 40 minutes talk time is a bargain.
I'm amazed at how many non-crafters wanted covers for their nooks from me after seeing my kid's home made covers.

Great work. I have always loved the Snail's Trail pattern.
