Waiting on Spring

Just when some of the trees are starting to bud out, we're to finally get some snow!!  What is that???  Just love this pix from Google...

Well, I participated in a quiltalong at my wonderful local quilt shop, Oh Sew Persnickety.  We used the book- The Fussycut Sampler.

While it's fun to sew along with other folks on a schedule, I have learned by doing this quiltalong, that I am NOT a willing fussycutter!!

It is sooooo verrrry hard for me to cut motifs out of the middle of a fat quarter or yardage... I was brought up to be a saver of fabric, no wasting allowed!!

I used my Halloween stash for this quilt, and while I like how it turned out, I won't ever be doing a whole quilt using the fussycut method...  just to wasteful for my economical soul!!

I made a quilt for my younger son for Christmas, and although I did finish the top before Christmas, I didn't get it quilted and bound until recently.

It is one of the Missouri Star's disappearing pinwheel quilts.  I saw the original quilt when Jenny from Missouri Star came to our local quilt show a few years ago, and I loved her fabrics, so I bought the same exact layer cake.

We are sooo enjoying our little grandson, Neal!  It is so fun to watch him grow and explore his world!!

Yogi is still hanging in there!!  He wants to know what you are working on these days!?
