Snowfall...and a quilt to go with it

This is what we've been dealing with since Friday. I live near Lake Erie and this area gets lake effect snow. We live 40 miles southwest of the lake, and got punched pretty good. Now the peeps closer to Cleveland, and parts east have received upwards of three feet of snow.
I started this quilt on a sewing weekend that some quilty friends and I go to every year. I just finished putting the binding on last night. My first 2101 finish! The quilt was inspired by Marit's quilt Check out her site, she does some pretty awesome quilts.

Have a great day......keep warm. We're supposed to have a break in the snow tomorrow, then more lake effect until Saturday. Another excuse to stay home and sew, (like we really need one! Ha!)

This is really pretty! I love the simplicity of it and yet it looks complicated. I just found your blog from the comment you left in my nature blog. I have a quilt blog, also. I'm intriqued that you live near Lake Erie. My parents used to live in Huron, Ohio. I still have relatives up that way. I'll be back I'm sure!

Linda, I just popped in to say Hi and thank you for your generous offer of quilting the Sis Boom Pow quilts that many of us made blocks for. I hope you enjoy looking at them while you're quilting them ~ I'm so proud to be a part of the group (you included!).

Hi - V asked us to recognize your generosity for quilting all the Sis Boom Pow quilts. You are indeed both kind and generous for doing that. I appreciate it and I am sure that all the recipients will also appreciate it. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

I love this quilt you made. I agree about the beautiful simplicity of it....I have snow here too with freezing temps, but it hasn't made me sew as beautiful as you :)Ane I got to see the Sis Boom Pow quilts and they are precious. God bless all you ladies for such inspirational work with your God given talents.
