Scrap Attack #3

Continuing on with more scraps! I started this quilt at the end of last year to use up some 2.5 inch squares. The inspiration came from SOTAK, her's was simple and fun. She went crazy on the hand quilting, mine is more basic. I love how the all over hand quilting really added to the project. Now that I have built up my calluses, it's time to do more quilting by hand. 

We are currently getting 3 to 6 inches of fluffy snow in New England. Schools are closed for the day, for me, no work! I did brave the cold and snow to venture out for some photos. This one has been waiting for some good light (hard to find this time of year) for weeks now. 

Friday we close on the house. I am getting so excited. Instead of being able to use my extra day off for sewing I am doing the practical thing, packing and school work. What I am not so excited about is moving, and unpacking. That whole process seems daunting.
