I’m still having too much fun with the Charlie Brown characters. The little ones here are choosing the order that these are being made. The patterns are designed by Alida at Tweety Loves Quilting for a QAL hosted by Beaquilter. Alida quickly came up with a pattern for Pigpen when I asked her about one. Amazing! The children were so excited about seeing him come to life.
The QAL calls for one character a month, but I have a serious addiction to these little guys. My paper piecing skills have been challenged. I consider myself a novice, having only done pieces that involve no more than two sections. My latest ones include one with 18 sections!!!!
These are the newest members of the team.

Recently we all enjoyed the Bloggers Quilt Festival with all of the spectacular quilts that were shared. The winner of the Viewer’s Choice award went to Gosia of Quilts My Way for her Light of Stars. I have followed her work for awhile and have admired what she creates. She had a giveaway on her blog for her pattern of her winning quilt and I was one of the lucky recipients of it. I was thrilled. This is a photo taken from Gosia’s site. Aren’t the colors stunning? I hope I can do it justice in my attempt at making it.
We spent the weekend in snow with several of our children and their families. There wasn't much snow for playing, but we had a great time anyway. We need a good blizzard like they are now getting in the Northeast!
