Last week I finally finished the 4th snowflake for the Paper Cuts BOM. A little after February, but I am officially no longer behind.
This snowflake is called Whisper, which seems appropriate for the quiet that also falls when the snow does.
The first four snowflakes in this BOM are the smallest at 9 1/2″. Adding strips brings them up to 12 1/2″. From now on, it looks like the rest of the snowflakes won’t need strips to get to that size. The blocks will be on point when the quilt is put together, though I’ve been photographing them as squares.
Paper piecing certainly generates a lot of scrap bits, both paper and fabric. I spend a lot of time trimming the various sections.
This time I managed to sew them all together in the right order, at least.
And the snowflake summoning magic of the blocks continued, because after I sewed the block, the next day the trees looked like this:
Very rare for early March around here.
I’m a little worried about what happens when I get around to the March block at the end of the month, much less the April and May blocks . . .
