Sunday Snapshot #14

Lots of good things going on this weekend::

Hockey returned Saturday *finally* and it was a pretty great opening game Chicago vs. L.A. to start off the season.  Wahoo!  

I had a great GS program at work, even though only 2 out of 7 came.  They had a good time making their rainbow little quilts and really enjoyed seeing all the quilts in the gallery.  It's not always easy to go to work on the weekends, but for these programs it's definitely worth it.

The organizing bug struck again this afternoon and I have another bag of items to take to Goodwill.  Plus, my apt. is a little tidier.  :)

And the Ravens just advanced to the Super Bowl!  How exciting and I bet my friends back in B'more are gonna have a good time celebrating that.

Lastly, I finished quilting the blocks in my Summer Sampler quilt!  This has been patiently waiting until I could come up with an idea for quilting......and continued to wait until I decided I just needed to start stitching!  It helped to join in with the Finish A Long, because it lends some serious motivation to sitting down at the machine.  

Isn't this shot of the back awesome?! You can see the fun confetti dot print I used as backing & the blocks.

I knew what I wanted in several blocks, and just kept working with the rest until the right idea came around.  To help figure it out I printed out a picture of the quilt top, put it in a page protector sheet and used a dry erase marker to draw designs and see how they look.  Easy to try out different things without having to rip out stitches.  Now I'll just be working on what to quilt in the sashing & border.

A bit wordier than normal for the Sunday Snapshot so I'm signing off!  Linking up to Lee's WIP Wednesday too.  Go check out all the great things people are creating!
