When I went to Quilt Market last year in Pittsburgh, I saw the most stunningly beautiful quilt... and I had to make it. I knew it would be a "monster" but I wanted to do it anyways. I had hoped to finish it at Christmas... but that never happened; but, I have been work furiously to finish it aaannnd..... it is finally done. It is called Floreo and is by 4 and 6 Designs. The quilt is 78 X 96 and I can't wait to quilt it. With this off my plate, I can now start some other UFO's..... maybe even that Vintage Valentine.

just wanted to post a Thank You to my bloggy friend Betsy (from SUNNY Florida - LOL) for the lovely Cathedral Windows ornament... it's too lovely to put away with the Christmas Decorations... so I will leave it on my studio wall to look at all year long.

As I write this... we are in the midst of a winter blizzard...... supposed to only last for one day tho.. I spent the morning quilting a customer quilt (the first for 2010) and I will spend the afternoon finishing my Snail's Trail blocks for the round robin I am in.


I can't believe that it is 2010...... I remember 10 years ago New Year's Eve was going to be the end of our computers and electronics.... LOL... time changes....

I was so happy to be able to cross off one last UFO on my quilting list - I quilted my Greenbrier Quilt and am happy to say I believe it turned out great. I love the "prim" look of wool applique.

I also quilted up my Christmas 2009 quilt; the one that used the Northcott panel. I didn't really intend to make a Christmas quilt for 2009 - so this will be the official one!
As with most quilters and sewers, I have a busy 2010 planned. Sending best wishes to all my blogging friends for a wonderful 2010.

Thought for the Day
I said to the Man,
At the Gate of the Year:
"What light cans't thou lend,
to those entering here?
I never have traveled,
This pathway before,
Thy help and thy counsel,
I humbly implore.
How can I discover,
What lieth ahead,
That I may walk safely, Wherever I tread"?
