I've really been enjoying working my crumbs and bits and pieces. Some days I can barely squeeze out 15 minutes, but I've made 13 blocks so far. I started sewing blocks without a plan other than my typical white background. But the more I've played with these blocks the more I've been thinking something different for a change. When I came across this black multi-colored polka-dotted fabric. My next decision was to make snowball blocks using the dotty fabric as a background. Breaking out of the box a bit has really motivated me with this one!

I love the snowball idea. The block looks like a glass ornament reflecting every color around it!

Love how you are just going for it and making different blocks with the different fabrics, it all looks so nice together.
