Snow Day Fun!!

The snow fell, and fell, leaving a beautiful world! And I don't know why, but I have always felt as if snow days were a gift, dropped into my lap. And it was a gift to be able to stay home so close to Christmas and get so much done! Sweetness!

There was actually 12+ inches of snow at our place. I think the top over our deck kept a lot of the white stuff out. Did I mention that it is beautiful?

Now...I am soooo excited! My sister said I could share about the quilt she made over a couple of these snow days! Since I have to go back to school tomorrow, I thought I would do one more 'fun thing' before the end of the gift and post it on my blog.

She had ordered Plain Jane FQs for her daughter who is having a baby in January and called for help. Actually, it was more like moral support. It was a challenge to figure out how to put them together, since they are from 3 different color groups, but here is the design she decided upon.

I love the white inner borders. It really sets off the colors of the Plain Jane fabric and ties it all together.

Another view.

And still one more.

Here she is doing some magic on the Bernina she got from our Grandmother more years ago than she wants to believe. :) She is piecing some leftovers to make a panel down on the backing fabric.

And here is that panel inserted in the backing. So much fun! :) Long arm quilter, here it comes!

Joy to you!
