Touchdown Top Finished

I finished this Touchdown Quilt top last weekend! It is for a 16 year old foster child who lives in a residential facility. I made it wider than the pattern calls for  and added an extra border to the top and bottom too. It is approximately 71 x 78 inches. It will get dropped off to Rachel for her to do her long arming  magic today!
Rachel sent me a picture on Monday of my Sunday Best Sampler on her longarm.  Do you see out her window? We got 10 inches of snow Sunday night and into Monday! Thankfully, our district called a snow day which was needed especially since our buses were already not running due to a COVID outbreak among the bus drivers. Rachel's window faces south looking towards Telluride, but this storm was worse to the north. For the first time in 20 years, they shut the highway down from Grand Junction to Delta. I love snow days especially when it made it a four day weekend--I had Friday off because of parent/teacher conferences earlier in the week.
I have quite a few UFOs that I need to make some progress on before I can start something new guilt free. With that in mind, I worked on some Farm Girl Vintage 2 blocks this last week. The ones above are 6 inch blocks--they are time consuming when they are so small. 
This one is a 12 inch block. I have three more 12 inch blocks to make and 13 more six inch blocks to make for the suggested layout which I really do love.

We did a grocery pick up this morning for 2 weeks worth of supplies. On almost every grocery pick up order since March, we get a cheese fondue because it is pretty much ready in less than 10 minutes and it is almost like not cooking. Our family loves the cheesy goodness with bread, green apples, and sausage. With dinner planned, I will be quilting and enjoying football. Have a great week!
