Fall 2021 Current Project #2, Weeks #3 & 4

I’m behind a bit on posting my progress so I’m combining two blocks in one post. This was the second Fall 2021 Current Project to begin. Week #3 block came out last week and block #4 came out yesterday. This wall hanging/table topper is Snowmen & Silent Night. Jacquelynne Steves is sharing this project via email.

Snowmen & Silent Night Fall 2021 QAL by Jacquelynne Steves

This has been a fun and easy project. The blocks are similar & go together quickly. One issue I’ve had is that the pattern calls for embroidered snowmen on white fabric as the middle of each block. I chose to use red fabric with Christmas-themed words and this caused a bit of a clash in the color placement of block #2 and I modified it to look better.

Unfortunately I did not catch that before cutting out the fabric for Block #3. Although it doesn’t look bad, I just wasn’t happy with it.

So I made another block with a design change. Because my center block is Red, I chose to use the Green for the Red in the flying geese and changed one red for a green in the 4-patches.

My new Block #3

See them together. Yup. I like the one with the Green better.

Compare the 2 versions of Block #3

Block #4 is the final block. Next week we’ll get finishing instructions. I did not need to make any adjustments to the color placement.

So here you have all 4 blocks finished.

Ta Da! Ready for finishing (or not?)

I really think I will make an additional 2 sets/8 more blocks total so I can make a throw. But that may wait until next month.

Tomorrow’s another day of stitching!

Happy Stitching!
