First February Finish

This is my grandson's preschool quilt.  The teachers drew the cross, my daughter went over the drawing with fabric crayons and then they had each of the 3 and 4 year olds color a cross.  After we transferred the drawings to the fabric, my daughter wrote each child's name on his or her block.  I used the square in a square technique to make them easier to work with, and alternated the 3 and 4 year old pictures.  I just finished stitching the binding down today.  This quilt will be used as a fund raiser in their silent auction in March.

It's a snow day here in the midwest.  I even canceled a doctor appointment this morning -- not so much for the snow, but the winds are fierce and have been since yesterday.  We're supposed to get a foot + of snow and it will definitely be a blizzard with these winds.  I'm pretty sure everything will be closed tomorrow if we get what they are predicting.  It's okay with me -- another day to sew!

My neighbor bought Bill's truck and has transferred his plow to it.  He was plowing my drive at 6:30 this morning and will be back a number of times, I'm sure, before the snow is done sometime tomorrow.
I'm making some progress on the ufo pile.
