My area of the country was threatened with 5 to 7 inches of snow for Friday so most of the area, after they cleaned out the grocery stores on Thursday, stayed home. I did not hit the grocery store but I was one of those preparing my mind for shoveling the walkway and taking awesome quilt photos in the snow. Like this lovely Checker block from the Beehive Quilt block series. This is for the January Queen who wanted all solids that were reminiscent of sea glass. Well, I only got about one inch of snow and it only covered the grass in the yard and nothing stuck to the walkways or the roads. So, I really could have gotten to and from work instead of bringing my lap top home. So, after I did a little bit of work stuff I was able to start my Snow Day sewing.
I had started a table runner last week and it was a bit large for that purpose so it is now going to be a quilt. My initial fabric pull consisted of this combination of navy and pistachio green. Since I decided to change this into a quilt I made another fabric pull that consisted of aqua and purple inspired by that Kate Spain fabric on the top left. I’m planning on doing each section inspired by two color stories and using the same Checker block that I showed earlier in this post. The first two sections look fab together! I’m looking forward to getting this one finished. I’ve got three more sections currently in the works and all the fabrics are entirely from my stash! I may have to replace the white with grey low volumes since I believe I will be using all I currently have.
Speaking of Stash:
The last of my Christmas fabric shopping arrived recently from The Intrepid Thread. I love this black and white selection. These pretties have already made it into some projects: I’ve got some wide backing coming soon from Massdrop so I hope to have another quilt finished sooner rather than later. I hope all that are snowbound are getting some awesome Snow Day sewing done!
