Wind-Up for the Weekend 12/25/09

Even thought it's Christmas Day, I thought I would start today and see if I get any "bites."

I know that you all are enjoying time with your families, but maybe some of you, like me, are planning on getting some quilting done this weekend.

To be honest, I'm not exactly sure what I'll be working on this weekend!

Last night finished the flimsy for my daughter. I'm SO excited about it because I think it just turned out so cute.



It's almost 100% from my stash, but I did buy a few prints especially for this quilt (I'm sorry I don't know the name of the line of fabrics). I felt like I needed some large scale prints to balance out all the small prints common in 1930s quilts.

Here's a few of them...






And here's a few of my favorite prints that went into the quilt...





As I said, I'm not sure what I'm going to be working on this weekend, but I think that I'll be starting a new quilt. We're snowed in and under a blizzard warning for the next few days, so the only time I'll be venturing outside is to check on animals.

I'm just thankful that the ambient temperatures aren't very low because with the winds, it would be MANY degrees below zero if the ambient temps were lower. As it is, the temps with the wind chill factor are only hovering around -10° F.



Addendum:

I found out the name of the large prints that I used. They're called Aunt Grace Ties One On II. I don't know if that means that Aunt Grace is a lush, or what???

Here's a place that still has a few prints. They're phasing out.

I can't believe how quickly fabric lines come and go!

I'll play along, but I can't promise what I accomplish will be what I'm projecting I'll work on.

I just counted my UFO's on Christmas eve --I need to finish a few quick and easy ones before NYE.
