I finally managed to get my little quilt all washed and dried, so now it has that wonderful wrinkly look that I think gives a quilt half of its appeal. I was foolish and used a normal pencil to trace on my quilting patterns and the markings didn’t totally wash out in this first laundering, but I have a feeling that this quilt will be washed often, so the marks should come out soon enough.
I wanted to show the back of the quilt because I think this fabric is absolutely gorgeous. In my opinion, it doesn’t get any more cheerful than this!
Here’s the finished product. I’m thinking that I might have to re-evaluate my fondness for using busy prints. Hmmm.
I’d also like to apologize for the poor lighting in these pictures, but when you look outside my windows, you’ll understand!!
This is officially the biggest snow storm I have ever seen. Just to give you some idea of the amount of snow that we have, Logos School is closed. If you ever went to Logos, you know what a monumental occasion this is. This is the first time in twelve years that they have closed for snow. This is a lot of snow. Now all of you in the midwest with your 6′ and rising can laugh at us and our 18″, just like we laugh at the people in Portland who close for 1″. All the schools are closed, half of the hospitals are closed, banks, libraries, and shops are closed. And it’s so fun!! Last night we took a little trek around the neighborhood and made snow angels and Little B informed us of what a “mess” the snow was. A big mess.
