This is what we woke up to this morning 18+ inches of snow! We received word last night that today would be a snow day. You would think we have snow days all the time in western Colorado, but we do NOT. This is the second snow day in 23 years. The last one was December 2013.
Here is the same vantage point about noon on Sunday, so the accumulation was pretty quick.
We need the snow, so we are not complaining especially since we did not have to venture out in it today. Well, my hubby did since he plowed enough of the driveway for us to get our cars out tomorrow. It took him a couple of hours with the snowplow on his riding mower.
I made the most of the day as soon as my teenager woke up, I headed into my sewing room. I made my new block for the Charm Square Sampler Quilt. I was very tempted to start a new project, but I restrained myself and continued on with my scrap busting goal for 2015.
I decided to make some red Medallion Log Cabin blocks.
I got five made
and then decided to make some purple blocks too!
I made four purple blocks.
These are great 2.5 inch scrap busters! While I has digging in my scrap tubs for these blocks, I also cut 2.5 and 1.5 inch squares for more Carrie Nation blocks.
This is the quilt that inspired all these Medallion Log Cabin blocks. I think will have enough blocks to make several of these quilts. I know one will be a part of the Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2015 going to Happy Chemo. I am going to go throw some ravioli into the oven and spend some more time in my sewing room maybe I will dig into my orange scrap bin next. We are back to school tomorrow, but I am not complaining at least we got one snow day this winter! :0)
