Working on Rita Mae – Sugar Bear Quilt

The posts in this series are all part of the pattern, Sugar Bear.  These are not tutorials or how to videos, but are of me making this quilt.  It’s meant to be similar to a self guided quilt along and hopefully feel like we are making this quilt together (even if you are finding this years later).  Do tag me on Instagram (@southerncharmquilts)!  I’d love to see what you do with it.  🙂

Today’s work is all about the Rita Mae block. She’s just a little snowballing, so should be fairly easy breezy.

Video Summary

In the video, we chat about fabrics as we work on Rita Mae. I think this block could have been better had I added a couple of solids to my bundle, but oh well, still pretty. We go over snowballing and what a little you know what it is. I chat about a few things I do to try and make it end up correctly and when I fall short, I make it work.
