The cold weather has allowed a fair amount of quilting time lately. I also finished this pillow for my son's birthday. It was actually supposed to be a Christmas present last year, but this works, too!
My design wall has some of the blocks from the Tone It Down Quilt-Along from American Patchwork and Quilting. I started this before Christmas but it keeps getting put aside for other projects.
I have ten blocks done, and parts of several other blocks. These seem to take a lot of time to construct - all the small blocks are 1" finished and I'm making the blocks out of scraps, which always takes longer. I've been working on all the sections, so once I get that done, the blocks will go together fairly quickly. I've always wanted to make a Burgoyne Surrounded quilt, so this is it! This will be a pretty big quilt.
We are supposed to get 5" of snow tomorrow. I'd love to take a snow day and work on this, but I doubt I can manage to pull that off. Unfortunately for Wisconsin, 5" of snow isn't enough of an excuse to stay home! Our road crews are just too efficient sometimes.
