Quilting and Snow

Winter is still hanging around at our place; in fact they're predicting another 6-8 inches of snow for tonight and tomorrow.  By this time last year I had already cut the grass 3 times!

So to keep busy when we'd normally be planting part of the garden, I've done some more sewing.

This quilt top still needs a couple of borders before I can sandwich and quilt it, but the bright colors help me to think about summer.

This is a tote I made out of a stack of fat 8ths I received at the quilt retreat in November.  I wasn't sure what to make with them, but I think they turned out well on this project.  My friend made an awesome bag to take along when we go to the Paducah quilt show in a couple of weeks.  It inspired me to make a bag as well, although mine is pretty ordinary compared to hers.
