Snow, Snow, Go Away...

Come Back Another Day...

I am so ready for some warm tropical breezes.  However, I don't see that in my immediate future.

Not a lot to show you today.  I've been mostly hand quilting my Cheri Payne Quilt a Long quilt.  Should have it finished by the beginning of next week.  I got my Henrietta Whiskers quilt basted for hand quilting.  I pin basted my Autumn Plus quilt and a table runner.  I plan on machine quilt them sometime next week.

Remember I told you that I won a quilt pattern from Sharon at Fabrics 'n Flowers.  It's called Jewel Box.  Well I had a layer cake and charm pack of "Old Glory Gatherings" by Primitive Gatherings for Moda and decided to do a patriotic version.



I call mine "American Jewels".

Here is Sharon's version:



This quilt is really easy to make and goes very quickly.  Again, you need to go to her blog and check out her patterns.  I love them.

Now don't forget to enter my Giveaway.




Go here to enter.  This is really a lovely book.  Good Luck to all.  Remember you have until February 38th to enter.  Ha Ha I meant the 28th.  Guess I needed a few more days to get some quilting done...lol  I will pick 2 winners on March 1.  Be sure to leave a way to contact you.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Cathy

I like your "American Jewels", Cathy. I have a couple of small projects working up from charm and mini charm packs of that line of fabrics.

I'm so sorry you are still snowed in. Today we are supposed to have 82 degree weather, just like your background picture. I don't think I could handle all that cold :-(

your version of that pattern is great~!!~it's amazing how working a pattern up in different fabrics can completely change the way it turns out.

i would be happy to see the snow going away too . . . march is just around the corner and it will be melting and gone before we know it.
