I AM clever enough!

I took advantage of an empty driveway and the afternoon sun to carefully lay out my top to show all of you the extended pattern.
I did it!
I struggled so with the concept but wanted the end result so badly!
This was way out of my comfort zone.
I follow patterns...not design them.
But now this quilt IS all mine!
We are waiting for 9+" of snow that is due to arrive late tonight. Groceries are all stocked up. I am planning on making homemade chicken and noodles. It will warm the house and the heart.

Love that little bit of snow on the edge of the drive. Get the shovel ready for tomorrow. I am hoping for a day off to sew also.

I love this layout! Very cool. Of course, laying it out on the driveway was pretty daring. I haven't seen my driveway that dry for over a month (in Wisconsin). Right now (even though I snow-blowed) there's still a skimming of snow/ice.

And isn't AQOMC a great shop!?? I grew up in Leo and of course, it wasn't there at the time, but I visit a couple of times a year.

I saw your previous posts about this fabric collection - and wow what you did with it was wonderful!!! Love the dark stars and setting blocks among the drab wintery scenery outside.

Will you be adding a dark outside border to it before it's done? LOL I just noticed the word verification below is "patio" LOL :P should have been driveway!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
