Baby It's Cold Outside

We've had snow again and now it's definitely January in Kansas City...single digit temperatures make it a great time to be inside sewing. Cleaning house or doing the mound of laundry would probably keep me warmer, but this is soooo much more fun. Started a new quilt yesterday. My nephew is getting married in February and I've been toying around with a quilt for them and I've been playing with this idea. I don't know much about their (her) style, but they've asked for a red kitchenaid mixer in their registry, so I jumped on the red thing and came up with this. The print is a 30's reproduction, Grandma's Garden (something old), the design is contemporary, (something new), The center square will be the only blue center (something blue)....you get the picture. I think it's fun. Have to finish it up because the date is approaching fast. I want to hand quilt it (I hand quilt everything), so it's going to be a challenge to finish. I hope to finish up all the blocks today. I have all the centers done for the nine blocks. Here are the first four.

I wandered over here from IbbyBee Quilts. You have made some lovely quilts. I have never made a quilt, but hope to remedy that sometime this year.

I'm freezing in KC, too! Lucky for me (and my unfinished quilts) my sewing machine room is nice and toasty.
Looks great!
