Good Morning Quilters! A slight hint of spring showed up here on Saturday - it was in the mid 60's. A lot of the snow melted that day, but now the weather has changed back to our usual 30-40 degrees, and we shall have to wait a little longer before spring comes.
I worked on the plaids projects last week. I have lots of plaid fabric, and I blogged in January about a few simple quilts to use up some of the plaids (see the pictures here)
This plaid project (8 inch squares surrounded by smaller 2 inch squares) now has 6 completed blocks. The blocks finish at 16 inches. Here are the six blocks:
The second plaid quilt I worked on is very simple - and is on the design wall right now. It is made of squares, all the same size (6 inches) and the quilt will finish at 84" by 90". To finish it, I just have to sew the blocks into columns, and sew the columns together. I am about half way through this process.
I also made an apple pie yesterday. Hubby and I each had a ginormous piece, as you can see, and we shall try behave the rest of the week. But there is really nothing better than apple pie, fresh out of the oven, right? And with vanilla ice cream too! God is good!
