I am one of two featured bloggers for the Winter Wonderland Sew Along - Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber here and on Instagram so if your stopping in for the first time I hope you like what you see and follow. I did the Mittens block, of the Sleigh Bell Sampler Quilt, from the book Winter Wonderland by Sherri Falls of This & That Pattern Company . Melissa of Happy Quilting is the other blogger for this week. Please stop by her blog when you leave here to see the second block for this week. What a wonderful book, it breaks down all the blocks with clear and easy directions. The book has quilts, tablerunners, tabletopper, and even a tree skirt.
