Baby, it’s Cold outside!

We had sloppy wet snow off and on all day! I love it when the weather is bad! It gives me time to get reacquainted with my quilt room. I was looking through my WIP and found the quilt I started last Spring for my newest granddaughter. I had pulled most of the fabrics but I had only three blocks sewn together. I don’t normally cut everything I need all at once (how many times does it just not look like you thought it would). So I started cutting the rest of what I needed. Love that Easy Angle tool! Since I need 3 1/2 squares and HST’s to match, it’s a no brainer to cut the background from strips. The rest is scrappy of course, monkeys, kitties, dogs and bunnies to name a few with some crayon box colors to tie it together. Looks cute! I think I’ll go sew!

    I love winter! 🙂 Summer is just so unbearable in my sewing room as I have no A/C. But in the winter I can bundle up, now with my newly made wrist warmer :))) Would love to see pictures of the blocks you have already!

    The snow can look nice when viewed through a window and we can spend the time sewing, but this bitter cold we’re getting in our area is miserable. Congratulation on the new blog, I know I was eagerly waiting. Will you be showing pictures of some of your past projects? I think many of us would like to see them.
