In honor of this special day, I put a few quilts outside for viewing by passer by traffic. Days like this, I wish a had a long, high fence in my yard to show off and honor our quilting passion. I just grabbed a few from the top of a stack. Have a great day!
The above much-loved 16 Patches and Pinwheels has been a favorite designs, ala Quiltville.com. So clever, so easy if you get the light/darks in the right places. I've made this design at least 6 times, most of them for kids quilts. This is a queen size, now needing a little repair, sorta like the old gate, that also needs a little repair.

Having fun - an easy project. It has a hard bottom insert, and is lined, all crumbs as you see. This was a Craftsy Class that I've been admiring, called a Grocery Tote Bag, by Christina Camelli. I must admit, that over the many years of making quilts on my own designs, I 've almost forgotten how to READ instructions, so used this as my "practice" project. It's about 17" x 20".
Like many of you who live in the central USA, our area was buried with the latest blizzard of storm Xylia. I am still shoveling, and also being grateful for neighbor teenager who refused payment for snowblowing. It's been a nice couple of days to stay inside and be glad I had a "stash".

Pretty amazing what can be done with scraps and crumbs. Triangles were sewn in the back corners and I inserted a paintstick for a hanging dowel. I think the recipient liked it. I LOVE the crookedyness.
