"A very Merry Unbirthday to you, to you. A very Merry Unbirthday to you." from Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland"

One of the courses I have taken on Craftsy is Camille Roskelley's first one on using pre-cuts, and during it she shows how to make her Swoon block. I finally got around to making one and now I'm hooked.  The block measures a hefty 24" square, so I think it's the biggest single block I've ever handled.  I ended up using the Sunnyside fat quarters for this project.  Not sure why it's called that since there are lots of clouds and raindrops, but I do like it.

I'm enjoying playing with the color values.  

Spoiler Alert:  If you are totally sick of snow and wintry weather, stop here.

We were not supposed to get a blizzard last night.  The Cape and Islands were getting the blizzard.  We had a heavy snow warning only.  Lucky us.

Out my back stairs.

God bless the gentleman who used his snow blower to clear the stuff the city snow plow dumps in my driveway.  I did the rest and am now resting wondering if I should start another Swoon.  I also need some cookies, so I might do that instead.

God Bless Us Everyone!

Those blocks are just lovely and definitely whoppers at 24". What a lot of snow. Wish we'd get some sort of wet stuff as it is so dry here at the moment. Take care.

I know I'm too late now, but my suggestion would have been hot chocolate with a couple of biccies followed by Swooning for the rest of the day.
