Anyhoo, today we each got a quilt done. I have another finish in 2015! Well, I will when the binding is stitched down later tonight. This quilt was started when I saw some fabric I really liked, but didn't know what to do with. The store was going out of business, so the companion fabrics were inexpensive, too, so I bought some of all three and went merrily on my way. I would suggest that you never do this. Not knowing what I was going to make made it hard to decide what to do. So I made a bunch of 9-patches and snowball blocks, keeping aside enough focus fabric for a small border. I used all of the fabric.The blocks laid in a straight set didn't make a very big quilt, so I put them on point. It ended up a nice sized lap or nap quilt. Not my usual color palette, but still pretty.

Tomorrow, I am off on an adventure with Stephanie to check out some old quilts and an old sewing machine at a yard sale. Then I have to get packed. Florida awaits!
