Flurry & Flakes SAL Finishing the Quilt

Happy happy Thursday, my friends. Today is the day that I am finishing my Flurry & Flakes SAL .


 I am so grateful to all of you who have followed my progress, gave me kind words of encouragement and for those who have participated.  You are the best!!!

Last week, I shared with you the 4 alternate blocks that I am using to set my embroidered blocks with.  So are you ready to finish this baby up. Come on ! Let's do it! 



All our blocks are complete and now it is time to sew the embroidered blocks and pieced blocks together. 

 Let's lay the blocks out into a pleasing formation. Hmmm ! What do you think ?  Since this about a Snow family, how about let's put the Family Portrait block  in the center.  That looks pretty good. Don't you think? 

 Alrigthy! I will sew these babies up and then give them a good pressing. . Doesn't the pieced blocks  give the impression of sled tracks ?

Now it is time for the simple border.  I found a bit of black fabric in my stash. It is not wintery like I would like , but it will do. 

From your chosen  black border fabric  CUT 4 strips of  fabric 4 1/2" x 24 1/2"

 Last week we  made 4 extra  4 patches measuring 4 1/2" unfinished ; these will be our corner blocks. 

USING THE PHOTO AS A GUIDE , SEW THE BORDERS ONTO THE TOP USING 1/4" SEAM ALLOWANCE. 

WALLAH!!!  We are done. Woo Hoo ! Let's do the snowman happy dance !!⛄☃

The finished quilt will measure 32" x 32" . 

Flurry & Flakes will be going into the hoop soon.

Now this is not the end of Flurry & the Flakes. You may see them again in the upcoming  year in another quilt, an embroidery or as a cross stitch.  I just had too much fun with these characters . 

Thank you for the sweet Thursday visit , my dears. I am off to put in a few stitches in 2 Christmas quilts- My Rudolph  and my Santa quilt. If you have a hankering , you can pull up a chair and join me. Needle and thread  are on the table. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—๐Ÿงต

As always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting,

 ya'll

Melisa

Dedicated to my dear baby sister Amy  who loved snow as much as I do.   Love and miss ya. ❤❤❤❤
