    I'm visiting my parents in Ohio and made it just in time for the 2 worst snowstorms in 20 years. I had started sewing on this quilt top before I left Colorado, and brought it with me, in case I got bored. Well, the snowstorms kept us pretty much housebound and I got the top done, even though Mom's sewing machine is the least expensive sewing machine on the market and I couldn't sew a straight line to save my soul (agh!). Problem is, I still have another week here. I may have to find a fabric store....

    Snow + Snow + More Snow = Snowballs Nice job, it looks good!
    I take it you have found out how spoiled we have become with our fancy computerized machines. I used a friends machine this past weekend and it was so basic it didn't have a needle up/needle down button. Well when I would turn corners, I was forgetting to make sure my needle was down before turning my fabric. Oops....... Happy shopping!!

    Smart girl! I never go anywhere without something to work on. The in-laws house is the worst! I can hold up with my stitching and never get involved in those "deep" conversations. It's probably saved many a fuss! lol

    Amazing how many quilters have been getting quilts made these last few weeks with all the snow.

    My sewing machine shop was so busy this past week even with all the snow, they could barely keep up.

    Did you PP this quilt? I like the block you made and the quilt is great.
