If you want to go raid your stash or run to the fabric store to gather your fabrics... then here is what you're going to need.....
2 yards Green- border and cornerstone blocks
1 1/2 yards red- sashing
1 1/2 yards cream- block backgrounds
9 fat quarters in the following colors- black, rust, brown, medium green, gold/yellow, medium gold, medium blue, dark blue and dark gray (These colors are used for the quilt blocks. Any left over fabric is used for the applique)
1 fat quarter white/cream
1 fat quarter light blue

This quilt would also be pretty done all in blues too.... or reds.... have fun with it!

  6. On the instructions for the snowball blocks it says to cut your 5 1/2 in blocks in half diagonally. Should this be your 6 1/2 in blocks? I do not see any blocks cut to 5 1/2 in. on the cutting sheet.

    1. Hi Judy, Under the January Block Bird Watching Snowman directions you will be cutting 5 1/2" blocks from your dark green border fabric and cream background fabric and then sutting the 5 1/2" square in half diagonally to make a total of 16 triangles of each color. This is enough for 4 blocks that will be in the quilt. You will applique one of the snowball blocks this month and saving the other 3 snowball blocks for 'down the road'.

  11. Just received my kit and I am so excited to begin! What weight/brand of thread did you use for the machine blanket stitching? Do you use embroidery floss for the french knots? If so, how many strands?
