Inauguration Day

There will be much said and much written about today by others much more eloquent then I could ever be. So, with that said, let me just say -

Today, I am proud to be an American

A New Year - A Continuing Quilt

I'm working on the Dec/Jan block for the Saturday Sampler from Pennington Quilt Works. Generally I enjoy picking my own fabrics for blocks, but these ladies are amazing. Their fabric choices are absolutely perfect. It's always fun to go to the class. Sometimes they review techniques I already know and sometimes I learn a new technique. There's always tips. Every class is full. I'm doing my quilt in the Spice colorway. It doesn't really "go" with anything in my house, but that is usually not my primary concern. I like working with different colors and am usually more concerned with the "feel" of the finished quilt. I tend to be eclectic in my tastes.
