OMG - January

This is my first time linking to Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal  My friend Patty has been doing a great job hosting and I felt January would be a good time for me to try and join in.

My project is one that I completed the blocks for last year.  And, I was happily making Buttermilk Basin's mystery QAL with Japanese fabrics and wool all year but it started to get scary to say it ("Let It Snow") out loud once we had our first snowfall of this season and it has been waiting since November for a finish.  I originally planned to make this a bigger top but scaled back once I decided what wall it would hang on.  It will alternate with a daisy quilted wall hanging in my front entry area.

Here is what it looks like now as a completed top:
I hope to get it sandwiched, quilted and bound (and hung) this month as my goal.

Such an adorable quilt. I love Buttermilk Basin patterns and this is one of my favorite.

Woohoo that is fabulous! Yeah it is a bit daunting do you put up your winter decorations with the "let it snow" mantra and cause the snowmaggedon?

I know about the 'Let it Snow' part. You need to change it to 'Let us Sew':)! Love your snowmen blocks. It will look beautiful in your front entry area.
