Snow Day!

Wednesday was an unexpected snow day. The snow totals weren't high, but roads all over the Atlanta area were impassable, bringing the entire city to a standstill. I am very grateful that I ride the train to and from work because I had no problem getting home on Tuesday, unlike so many people who were stuck on the roads for 20 hours or more. It looks rather pretty on our back patio though, doesn't it.

I took advantage of the bonus day off and spent most of it working on a baby quilt for one of my co-workers. My initial inspiration was these two fabrics, which will be the border and the background.

I pulled out all sorts of yellow and aqua/turquoise and pink scraps and stitched up a pile of bowtie blocks. I still need to make some more in pinks and maybe a few purple/lavendar, then I can start arranging them on my wall. By the time I quit making bowties, there will probably be enough blocks to make two baby quilts!

I am linking up to "Let's Make Baby Quilts" Friday at Michelle's Romantic Tangle.

  1. Glad you were safe, I've been watching the news, what a mess! Up here(IN) 2 inches is nothing to worry about, but we usually get much more than that. Love your cheery blocks, a nice way to get away from all the chaos outside.

  2. They will be adodrable. So bright and cheery. Stay safe and warm.

  3. Crazy weather everywhere. Looking forward to seeing your finished baby quilt - fun bright colors, perfect for a sweet baby quilt.

  4. I forgot you lived in the Atlanta area. So glad you ride the train, from what we saw on the news, it was really nasty on the roadways.

    I really like the colors you've got going for the baby quilt. Looking forward to seeing it come together.
