After 2 weeks of sub-zero weather (between North Dakota and MN), it warmed up for 3 days this week. But winter is back with a vengeance with snow and bitter winds. After shoveling snow this afternoon, I came in and looked at the temps. Minus 12 windchill. Brr!
Mug Rug Update
I thoroughly enjoyed the hot chocolate and tea mug rug drawings that were shared with me. They warmed my heart! If you would like to join you the Learning EQ Facebook group, you can request membership here.

Snowflake Sampler Quilt
This week we are going to collect blocks from the EQ block library that can remind us of snowflakes. We are also going to collect fabrics that remind us of snow as well. Your collection can be completely different from mine -- but the goal is to have approximately 15 snowflake blocks.
If you would like to work along with me, color your snowflakes and save them to your Project Sketchbook. Next week we are going to use a custom setting to showcase the sampler blocks.
Here are my colored snowflakes -- all from the EQ8 Library with only a couple of modifications (as outlined in the video).
