Block of the month kit from a local fabric store. Fabrics, pattern, instructions.
What was your inspiration?
Was invited to join in on a Block of the Month project and couldn't resist when I saw the sample of all the cute blocks I would be able to make. I have had SO much fun making these. This is block #7 although I have not gone in order since I got behind a little. Catching up now so I'll have it done before Christmas to hang it up for all to see.
What are you most proud of?
His new hat. The pattern didn't provide one and at first I went with it. I just wasn't happy with his bare head so I fashioned him one. He is stylin' now to go to the 'snow' ball with the misses. LOL
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch all the videos and read all the books you can about applique before beginning a project like this. Save yourself a lot of headaches and guess work.
