Beat the Heat With a Giant Snow Globe

It’s been HOT! Temperatures have been in the 100’s. To beat the heat I’ve been sewing. My sewing room is in the cool basement. It’s a great place to beat the heat.

To increase the cool I pulled out my blue scrap bins. I have two, one for dark blues the other for light blues. When I had only one blue bin. It was always overflowing. I’m better at managing and keeping things under control now that I have two. I also pulled out my low volume bin.

I did a rough sketch to place my falling snow. Then got busy sewing it up. Once the blocks were sewn together I loaded it on the long arm. Quilting a simple swirling pattern around the snow globe. While quilting falling snowflakes inside the globe. To finish it off I did a woodgrain motif along the base.

Finally I found a light blue denim look fabric in my stash for the binding.

This is just one more example of what is available using the lessons found in Stash Busting Design. Use the block library to fill in the snowball, heart or star quilt. Make a quilt sized from 24″ wall hanging to 108″ bed quilt. Learn about color, value and design. Doors open soon. Save your spot!
