This is the first day that it has snowed. Not seriously,just enough to cover the ground. It makes my house feel very snug. The blocks are all done except the last row. With my very efficient storage system, I cannot find the white/taupe print. The question is whether to look some more or just use something else. Either way would be fine by me. I do know if I use another print, the first one will show up 3 days later.
This block is called Yzreka and was designed by Nancy Cabot in the 30's. I love how the corners come together. It looks like two blocks, but is not....more bang for the buck.
Now to my cozy quilting room!!!


  1. I'm loving the snow - and your quilt!

  2. The snow looks a little more serious this morning. Are these the 16 scrappy patches from BE? Whatever, I love the way the quilt is coming together!

  3. Bonnie,
    I love your scrappy quilt!

  4. I secretly hope the background fabric stays hidden long enough for you to use something else. Don't get me wrong. I like that fabric a lot. But I also love the "make do" quilts of the old days. Did I just put my foot in my mouth?
