Lazy Snow Day

Had a snow day from school yesterday as things got back to normal after the rotten conditions with the storm that blew through Monday night.   Seemed like I stayed busy, but didn't do much of anything.   Did get my blue scraps sorted looking for dark blues for the setting triangles of the sampler currently residing on my "design floor" in the living room.  

Made a test set from the Dresden plate template that I had bought for this quilt, and decided that this template is too small, but it is what I want for the setting blocks.   So it's going to be returned and I'll get the one I'd started to in the first place.   Or else I'll figure out how to draft the fan blades myself and make my own.

I did get the final Eye Spy quilt finished up.   This used up the remaining extra charms from the sets I'd made years ago.  The charms and black squares were all out of my scrap bins.  Border was a piece from the stash that I'd had for a lot of years.   Not sure I like the three charms together or not, but it's done and will be donated to Sunshine.

Gratitudes:
1. A job that pays the bills
2. No snow predicted for today and warmer temps.  =)

Glad to hear warmer was predicted, hope it actually happened! I like those diagonal lines of squares. Those are going to be popular quilts among the young generation.
