Flowering Snowball

While on Instagram one night I found an online shop
to buy some Cotton and Steel

Stitch Supply Co
and it has kits available for making this
15" x 15" "Flowering Snowball" mini quilt for $12.
The kit included the paper templates,
fabric for the front and binding!

Stitch Supply Co. is Ann (owner) dream coming true.
One step at a time on an exciting adventure.
(She also has some other free mini patterns available for download)!

Now, if I can try a new technique
for that cost I am all into it!

This wonderful hobby as we know it
can get quite expensive for a project
and then we find that we cannot
do it properly and quit.
Into the UFO pile,
got any of those my friends!
Sewing curves was not to bad
and I loved the results!


It went from a pile of beautiful
Cotton + Steel
to my
fantastic 15" x 15"
Flowering Snowball Mini Quilt


I am not afraid of curves anymore!
This kit makes it easy to learn!

The longest thing has been hand quilting!
But I just don't think I would have gotten
the quilting detail that
I have with machine quilting!


I have noticed an improvement
in my hand quilting since
undertaking this project!

You can see in the photo above how
my stitches are sloppier and
larger than in the photo below!

The stitches begin to look more uniformed
as I spend more time observing what
is happening on both sides
of the quilt!


Ann from Stitch Supply Co
has offered to giveaway a
Flowering Snowball Mini Quilt Kit!
Is that the greatest!

    There are so many pretty fabrics that it is hard to choose. My eye went right to the new Kona bundle, though. I have to say this my favorite. I also like the Spot On Prep School Palate. Outside my usual box but very intriguing. I love Cotton + Steel and wish I could add all of them to my stash. Mustang is my favorite C+S.

    Thanks for the chance to win ,,, :) Pat
