ABC Sampler Quilt

After seeing this adorable quilt at International Quilt Fest I found the pattern and am making it with my friend Karen. We've done a few quilts together but not lately.  
Here's my first block. There will be a few more applique pieces once I add the other blocks and borders.
It's been awhile since I've done hand applique- whoa, those berries! LOL
See Karen's block HERE.

 My niece had her baby early! Please meet Zackary James. And because of the snow the quilt has not arrived yet! I knew I should have sent it USPS. 
She sent me this photo last night. I'll be making a trip over to see him in person when the weather clears and the forecast looks good. 

My Instagram feed for the week.

No snow in our forecast for several days, thank goodness! In the last month we've gotten 38+" of snow, which is unusual for us. My husband ordered a plow to put on the front of our truck. We've got a long driveway and a parking lot to shovel at our business. He is really getting tired of all the shoveling. We're getting too old for that! LOL  

Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. I love the quilt project! I'm hoping to get to start working on the Flags of the American Revolution this year. I think I'm too slow to join in on a large project like yours.
