The beauty of it all......!

Today is a SNOW DAY! ;o)

You can always expect a snow storm in April. It's just a question of when!

Thankfully, the beauty does not hang around for too long. It is spring you know!

What a perfect day for a latte and some quilting! I'm working on a project that I hope to share with you soon.

On the project completion front, I finished Tic-Tac Baskets, a pattern by Jan Patek Quilts.

I used Jan Patek's fabric line Blessings from Moda. I love Moda! ;o)

The quilt is machine pieced and appliqued!

As much as I enjoy needleturn appliqué, I also find the preparation for machine appliqué quite relaxing.

I use that prep time to listen to audiobooks. Not something I can easily do when I'm using my sewing machine.

Penelope and I had some bonding time. I played with rulers and free-form on the Tic-Tac Basket quilt.

Gosh, I'm loving ruler work! ;o) My, in the ditch work, has improved quite nicely!

What's on Penelope at the moment you might ask? Well, my Coney Island quilt! Yes, I feel comfortable enough to tackle that one! I can not wait to share the finish quilt with you!

Have a great week! Thank you so much for stopping by! Cheers!

That snow came pretty close to us . . . . but passed us by. I am thankful for that *s*

Your snow picture would make a lovely greeting card. I can not even imagine snow in April - give me the South anytime!
