A perfect blizzard

How could a blizzard be perfect you ask? Well, it can start on thursday night so you get a four day weekend!! I could probably get out but I'm not in any hurry to. I don't have to be at work until tuesday at 1.

quilt progress!!

I have the Posh top together! I am really happy with the way it turned out. I love that border fabric!

I also picked up Josh's tractor quilt and the Carpenter's Wheel quilt from the long arm quilter. I had the quilt store over in Liberal quilt these two for me since I just don't have the time or space to do them myself right now.
I wouldn't call the tractor quilt pretty. For that matter the fabrics don't even really go together. But it works. The tan looks a lot like a summer fallow field and the green looks like corn or soybeans if you were flying over the fields. The main thing is it's definitely a boy quilt and Josh is going to love it!!

The Carpenter's Wheel is actually a dark burgandy, a tone on tone gray and a gray with pink roses. The burgandy is way too orangy in this pic.

The perfect excuse...

to haul all the fat quarters out of the dresser!!

Fat Quarter Bingo!!!! Wohooo!!! Last year the pots were around 700 fqs for each group.

I needed to get all the fat quarters out and get them sorted by color again but I just haven't had the energy. Well, it's time for fat quarter bingo on the HGTV quilt message board again. I think that's what you call motivation!!

Plus when I win I have to have that dresser all organized so the new ones will fit!! LOL
