Three things to be happy about:
(1) fuzzy slippers
(2) looking thru old magazines
(3) Aveeno lotion
I discovered about 2 weeks ago that Mary Fons (of Fons & Porter fame) is a new Washington, DC resident! She's had an ongoing challenge getting settled but (all things considered) she seems to like our city. And if you are a Quilty magazine fan, here's a heads up - the May/June 2015 issue of that magazine will be the final one. Check her blog for info...
I missed our January guild meeting (yikes, the first one of the year!), but there's a mini-challenge that's due at the February meeting... we have to make something with a heart - wall hanging, post card, mug rug, garment, mini quilt - anything we want to.
I've browsed through it several times, and when I found out about the challenge I knew right off what I wanted to make!
Since I had pulled my Christmas fabrics out and hadn't put them away yet...
... might as well use em!
Here's the finished block - 3-1/2" squares, 3-1/2" half square triangles, 2" border strips...
I just need to quilt it and bingo - a little heart quilt! Not perfect, but it meets the challenge.
We had a bit of snow yesterday, the flakes were pretty big but they didn't last too long. No accumulation to speak of, at least not in DC.
Have a great day today, sew forth and sew on til later!
