The Weekend


The snow came, and was so beautiful falling. The temps this morning are in the teens, and so we still have snow on the ground, though it melted a lot yesterday. I spent the whole day working on UFO's, but did not make as much progress as I thought I would. I plan to work more today, and hopefully, get at least one quilt finished. I made a Dresden plate quilt(pictured here) from Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting, and I truly think it is the best quilt that I have ever made. I am in the process of hand quilting it, and then I need to bind it, so I hope to finish that today. It was so much fun to make. I ordered the templates from Fons and Porter and used all 30's fabrics, which are my favorites. So, I hope to have it hanging on my wall later today.

That is so lovely! I don't know how you manage to find the time to quilt. I can't wait to see the hexagon flower quilt done.
