Wedding quilt...
Got all of these blocks put together to make a very generously sized queen quilt. Ready to quilt it as soon as I can get out and get the backing. The snow drifting over our road is something else. We live on a little plateau of prairie- it's uphill- ever so slightly- any way you come. Lovely breezes all summer, but in the winter... lots of howling winds that insist on coming in. John has been around the house stuffing batting scraps in all the little cracks around the doors- need trimmed out. And some caulk. We keep recieving calls from dh to help shovel him out of the drifts within sight of the house. So making a short story long, I'm not getting out much. At all. Just as well as we have been down with a very mean cold. Tomorrow, ds has a DR appointment so that means I'll be getting out and while I'm out... maybe Joann's will come up on the list of stops. I hear the roads in town are clear. The things I'll do to get to the fabric store...

Lovely, Lovely, Lovely. Hope you get the the fabric store soon. I think that would be a good antidote for a cold.

Such pretty fabrics in the quilt.

And I like the heart quilt shown in your header! Happy Valentine's Day.

Is that the BQ quilt pattern? That is the same one I am using for Maddie's Paris quilt. Background is Kona cotton "Snow" and sashing is black with white polka dots. THe big blocks are all those Paris/Eiffel tower fabrics I have been collecting for 10 years now!

Me and Mom are headed to Whittle's up near Bowling Green in just a little while. Check out their website - Whittle's Fabrics. Great prices - usually about $3.50 a yard for great fabric. Might find you some little presents today!

Miss you and love you! Need a sewing day with you desperately!
