Super Bowl Sunday

What do you have planned today.  I might watch a bit of the game but mostly I am going to be sewing.  With the weather we've been having I've been doing a lot of that.

First up is my Quilt Doodles 2014 BOM.  It is now a flimsy.  I finally got all the rows sewn together.  It now resides on the "To Be Quilted" pile.

Next I found a BOM I couldn't resist.  It is a wool BOM from Stacy at Buttermilk Basin Design Studio.  I did mine in cottons.

It is so adorable.  I can't wait to see what she has designed for next month.

I was going through my Project Boxes (I have 16) and came across a Medallion Quilt I started a few years ago.

This is how far I had gotten.

I added another narrow border and today I will finish adding a solid border.  I want to add another narrow border and then some small blocks.  It will probably go back into the box after that.

Seeing it is February 1st I pulled out my Temecula calendar to see what this month's quilt is.

So I pulled out a pink, white and dark red....

And whipped this together yesterday/  It went so quickly.  I even got it pinned ready to quilt.  I would have finished it yesterday but my dog Sammie wanted some cuddle time.  She is such a doll.

Well it's snowing...and snowing today.  My daughter Kelley and her husband and daughter are at the airport waiting to board their flight to Florida.  It was one of the only flights not to be cancelled.  They will be in Florida for the night and then tomorrow the go on a cruise....wish I were going.  LOL

Before you leave, please head on over to Huckleberry Stitches.  I am involved in a group she has started.  We make a quilt a month from the book "101 Fabulous Small Quilts".  

January's Quilt was "A Box of Chocolates"  She has a quilt show of all the quilts made by the participants.  She also has listed the quilt for this month. And it's not to late to join in the fun.

That's it for today.  I need to get a movie on (I'm watching the series of Lord of the Rings movies) and pull out projects to work on.  Stay warm and keep busy.

Hugs, Cathy

Sewing sounds like a great project for a snowy day. I'm so glad your daughters flight was not canceled.

I LOVE that Quilt Doodles flimsy!!! That is really, really cute. Normally I prefer applique but that's darling. Love your new BOM too, and the Medallion Quilt is stunning. How in the world do you get so much done...had you seen the LOTR movies before? We just loved them. Only movies we pay to see, lol. I had a Miss Marple marathon yesterday while hand stitching - it was lovely!

Love you Christmas flimsy--so fun!
You did a really nice job translating that wool BOM to cottons.

I love your medallion quilt ... I'd like to make one some day, but I'm not sure I have the creativity to design my own. I love your little log cabin, too ... but then I'll admit that I'm particularly partial to log cabins - they're so versatile. I'm glad your daughter and her family's flight wasn't cancelled ... whew!

I just posted my BB BOM on the facebook page. I hope to be able to do a blog post and will have it on there too.

I just recently purchased the 101 small quilts book. I have not made anything out of it yet.
