Welcome to Opposites Attract Day 5

Finally Here!
Sponsored By The Fat Quarter Shop

Welcome to my stop on the 'Opposites Attract Blog Hop'.  Thank you Marian at Seams to be Sew for organizing this.   When I ran across the invitation to join this hop I thought this would be great for me as a beginner blogger.  I had just decided to participate in my guild's Crayon Challenge so I thought I could do this.   My crayons were Navy Blue, Hot Magenta and Dandelion.  

I immediately new what pattern I wanted to make.    It was the Snowflake Block Tutorial originally designed by Madame Parfait. So here is the matching fabric.

I think the crayons and fabric match up pretty well.  The blue shows darker then it actually is.  OK on to the pattern.

Well the pattern was pretty easy to do.  Here are some pictures of the cutting and stitching.  

Just a note:  I made a mistake between end of Part 1 and beginning of Part 2.   The tutorial didn't mention anything about trimming, but when I went to Part 2 the segments were trimmed (I probably lost a page somewhere).  So I trimmed the segments but I forgot the 1/4 inch seam allowance.

Before I trimmed the segments.
After I trimmed too close to the top of the diamonds.

Well a few diamonds are not pointy.   Quilting and a scrappy binding and I'm done.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope to participate in a lot more hops this has been fun.  Be sure to visit these other quilters posting today:
