temecula basket mini

We finally have snow! Two snow falls and it's hard to remember we could see the grass at Christmas time.

temecula quilt co basket mini

My first official finish of 2016 is this Temecula Quilt Company mini basket quilt. It's been sitting stashed away waiting to be quilted and I finally just did it. Although unexpected, I'm pretty delighted with the odd binding prints that add a little bit of colour and help bring your eye back to the baskets.

Dream block from Friends on Chelsea Lane

The colours are a little off in this one - that's what happens when all of your quilting time happens after hours! This block from Friends on Chelsea Lane (by Pat Sloan) snuck under my needle. I needed to finish blanket stitching around the leaves. I still have to stitch the ric rac down. This is how I'm trying to resist joining any more Block of the Month programs this year - I have this one to work on and I love it.

I AM trying to stay on track with this quilt. My Halloween 1904 (by Blackbird Designs) quilt blocks received a lot of attention over the New Year's Luau/online retreat. I have now pinned one of the panels in preparation to quilt this weekend. A reward for surviving supply teaching in kindergarten this week :) Actually, teaching kindergarten is pretty rewarding all on its own!

There's my week or two of progress so far this year!

I'm linking up with Needle and Thread Network this week - check out some more Canadians making with fibre this winter.

With Joy,

Beautiful work! I especially love the Halloween quilt! :) That'll look wonderful when all is said & done! :) We have snow now too as well, I don't mind the snow, but the -20c temperatures have got to go!! Lol!

Sarah, I've never thought of taking photos outside in the snow. What a great idea! Love the projects!

Thanks for posting to TN&TN's WIP Wednesday!
