Oh baby, it's cold out there!

Brrrr, it is so cold it hurts today! It was -7 f when I went to work this morning and it was -1 f when I was on my way home at 5 pm!!! The next few days don't look any better. The weather report is throwing around numbers like -20 to -30 f and -5 f for a high temp! I guess the way to look at this is that this is perfect weather for quilting.

This is a quilt that I made for my quild's annual quilt show. I made this for the silent auction. The best part, one of my dear friends had the highest bid and took this home!

This is an "in progress" picture of my grandmother's flower garden quilt. I laid this out to try to balance the flowers AND to see just how many of the filler hexagons I will have to make. This is my portable project so the going is slow. I have now worked on this at soccer games, basketball games, and in New Jersey while on a trip for my Grandmothers 100th birthday. Maybe I should call this Charlotte's Flower Garden in honor of her.

Keep warm quilty friends!

Hi Kristin ... the way you've laid out your GFG is very similar to how I've done mine ... I love your colours/fabrics :o). What size hexys did you use??
