One thing this frigid and snowy winter is good for: Making me not want to leave my house.* I have been hunkering down, holing up, and hermiting away, trying not to think about the elements while working my way down the list of UFOs.
And so there were two more finishes this weekend. First is the bright baby quilt made from leftover drunkard's path and monkey wrench/churn dash blocks.
I quilted this in a loop-de-loop with Aurifil thread. I intended to just do a regular meander but my hands had a mind of their own and started doing barrel rolls right out the gate, so I just went along for the ride. Whee!
Edited to Add: I've been asked what the turquoise and pink floral border fabric is above. It is Gypsy Girl by Lily Ashbury for Moda.
Okay, so here's the back. I love polka dots. And polka, for that matter. Which I am not seeing represented on the Grammy awards** this evening.
It's getting late, so I'll be back tomorrow with the second finish.
*Monday's high—I repeat: high—is to be -5 F., low of -19, with a wind chill
advisory of -35 to -50 F. by Tuesday with (of course) blowing and
drifting snow. Winter blows.
**Forget rolling out the barrel. If I were playing a drinking game for every time LL Cool J licked his lips while hosting the Grammys, I would be unconscious right now. I think he'd be forgiven, though, because everything else about him is pretty fine.
