Winter has really arrived in the Mid-Atlantic states. Last Monday my iPhone showed this for our weather. Supposedly 7 snowy days out of 9 days. Luckily we didn't have that much snow. We had snow on Thursday. Not too bad. Then a bit of rain on Friday with more snow overnight. And Saturday it was mostly sleet with snow during the day. Nothing is really melting yet. But it will be as there is only one day this week showing snow/rain. I guess it will depend on when it starts raining if it becomes snow.
No pictures yet of the T shirt quilt but the quilting was done by noon on Saturday. One day this past week I pulled out the bits of yellow and white units. I laid out what I had and came up with an idea for a 3 block table runner. (Yes, I like smaller runners as we keep our table small unless we have a crowd.) I did get a few other blocks made too. So, overall, I was really happy with what I finished this past week. I've got several more blocks cut out ready to be sewn too. That left me more than enough time to really clean up my cutting table on Sunday.
This is how it looked Sunday around 3:00 pm. Truth be told I started working on my table runner again and I left all sorts of yellow and white fabrics on the purple cutting mat and something on the grey one too. The AccuQuilt cutter was opened again and used. I've promised myself that I would clean it all up again when I finish the runner. Time will tell!
Now for this coming week:
Bind T shirt quilt
Finish piecing yellow table runner
Quilt one of my quilts
Start another basket
Stitch up RSC yellow blocks and FCQ Equilter's blocks
My guess is I'll probably do more but this list is what I really want to get done. I need to decide on what project I should work on next. It might make sense to work on a UFO so I'll look through my list and see what strikes my fancy.
NEWS FLASH: I forgot an entire quilt when I reported my January stashbusting statistics. It was my Wild Snowball quilt that I posted on February 1. (You can also see what my cutting table looked like before the big clean up in the same post.) It added another 4.25 yards. Here are the new statistics. It made the month look even better than it was! I'm hoping I don't succumb to buying any fabric this month. I've succeeded for half a month.

That's it for this week. I'm linking with my regular parties: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Design Wall Monday, and To Do Tuesday*. * I'll link up on Tuesday hopefully but will see if I remember. Plus the linky party is being moved to another blog. I'll let you know where it is then. Thanks to the gals at Home Sewn by Us for hosting To Do Tuesday for quite a long time. And thanks, also, to Chris at Chris Knits for taking on the linky party.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
