Just a quick update and then back to quilting. Here is my quilt all basted and ready to go.
Do you think I used enough pins? If you click on the image to biggefy it you will be able to see just how many. 😉
Some of you have been asking for chocolate so I put together some chocolate and chocolate flavored goodies to share. Enjoy!
I haven’t been able to visit all the blogs…been busy basting and my computer is behaving real slow lately. I will visit them tomorrow and see how we all have done.

I hope you don’t mind, but I had to change the logo for this event. As I mentioned yesterday we received about 20 inches of snow and when we woke up this morning we had an additional 6 inches! I am wishing for Spring, but as you can see it is a long way off from here!
Our dog Nina, a 60 pound rottweiler/hound mix, is standing on our patio. We have only shoveled a path to get to the back yard, but even our snow loving hound doesn’t want to go much further than where she is in this picture. As I am writing this our plow service is finally getting our driveway cleared. He had to get his Bobcat to finish the job. The snow is so wet and heavy that his pickup truck with the plow kept getting stuck!
Here is the quilt top I plan on basting and hopefully start quilting today.
I haven’t done much sewing yet, just pieced together the backing fabric for my quilt. It is taped to the basting table and I am ready to start basting.
Time to start the basting. I will report back later on my progress.
We just had over 20 inches of snow today and spring seems very far off from where I sit so I decided to sign up to join in the Spring Sewing Party being organized by the Charming Chatter blog. I figured it can’t hurt to at least “think Spring” for a day.
I plan on working on the comfort quilt I am making as a community service project that I picked up at the February Genesee Valley Quilt Club meeting. I hope to have it done to submit at the next GVQC meeting. The top is all pieced so I need to put together a backing, baste it and start quilting. I decided today on the quilting I plan on doing on it and can’t wait to get started. I wish the quilts would baste themselves!
Stay tuned so you can see my progress.
