Happy 2019! Here it is the first Monday in January-a brand new year and a brand new block. I am really excited to share this one with you. As I sit here typing the snow is falling outside which makes me really happy. We took some time this afternoon to get out and enjoy the snow and were treated to a Bald Eagle that did not mind being photographed. I am always thrilled to see them and we saw a total of five today. This was the only one that was not in town-the country eagle. The rest were hanging out at one of our local parks along the lake where we have been enjoying them for several days now.
I snapped this photo in the same spot, just looking down the river.
It is one of my favorite spots just a few miles from our house.
We returned home to our little covey of California Quail venturing out in the backyard.
I do have snowmen on mind...and am enjoying this sweet Christmas gift I was given...
But I know you are anxious to see this month's block. So without further ado, here is Block 8;
which reminded me of a snowflake as I was designing it so I have named it "A Beautiful Sight". This is the most challenging block of my BOM. In the introduction I encourage you to be patient with it, and I will repeat that here. Take your time and all will be well. This is a chance to dig a little deeper, to take what you have been learning and use it to stretch your skills a bit.

I am thrilled to have a group of wonderful quilters testing patterns for me now. They not only help improve my patterns but also are making beautiful blocks I get to share with you.
Romagene used some embroidery patterns on her machine to come up with this beauty.
I hope you enjoy this month's block. Looking ahead to next month...well it just might have something to do with a certain day celebrated in February.
Until next time,
Please note: The Snowman BOM started June 2018 and will run through June 2019. Blocks are released the first Monday of each month.
