This week we got a bit of snow here in the South, enough that some schools got out early on Friday and school was cancelled on Monday. The temperature has stayed low, keeping the ice on the roads from melting in the shady areas, so better safe that sorry since we don’t have a lot of de-icing and snow equipment in Atlanta.
With that, I managed to finish up a couple projects as part of the Snow Day Sew In (#SDSI on social media). First up was the paper piecing unicorn portrait, “Vinnie Does Beyonce”, after my mascot for The Stitch TV Show.
It was also time to finish up the En Provence mystery from Bonnie Hunter. Rather than use all the blocks in a single (huge) quilt, I took 4 of the blocks to make a donation version through my guild. Since that was smallish, it got whipped up rather quick and is now finished:
And, of course, I also worked on the BIG version. So big I had to baste it in my kitchen, where I have the biggest hardwood floor space available. I think this is around 84 x 65?” Roughly twin size, anyway. Here it is being basted:
It’s now quilted, but my arms are killing me, so I’m going to wait to bind it until tomorrow evening. Whew! Check out other quilters’ versions of En Provence on Bonnie’s link-up Monday!
