I'm feeling a bit aimless, quiltwise, since I was on deadline for our recent show, and now that it's over...well, I have to start something new! I have resurrected one machine-piecing UFO and I also found a needlepoint pillow that has been lying dormant for one year? two years? I am thinking about a new hand-piecing project and am considering "tumbling blocks," a pattern I have never made.
The photo is from the Quilt Show in Chicago I attended in April. I don't remember if it is new or old but I thought it looked festive for this time of year.

News Flash: We had a few snow flurries this morning, amounting to a light dusting. Sadly it melted before I had time to take a picture!

My quilt guild, Needle Chasers of Chevy Chase, had their biennial quilt show this past weekend. As you can see, I finished my Pies & Tarts quilt just in time to hang in the show. Final stitches were made at 8:30 pm the night before - perhaps a new record! See my post of November 1st to read more about this quilt. I was going to hang it on the wall in my family room but I may use it as a throw instead since it is so snuggly. Our weather here in the nation's capital has gotten very cold. It is a shock to our systems after a warm fall. More quilt show photos to follow.
