It's My Day...Give it a Whirl Blog Hop

The winds of March have blown in and we are spinning here. In fact a storm blew through last week that dumped over 2 feet of snow in some parts of the city. Thankfully were I live, we only saw about a foot and that melted almost as fast as it come down.

My twirly-whirly project was finished, but getting a decent pictures was a challenge.

You can see our "stick to the ground", snow total after 2 days. LOL!!
I am definitely not complaining, although I am one of those crazy people who actually love to shovel snow.

This picture was taken the day after the big storm
The winds were a blowing...but I  managed to a decent shot, thanks to my quilt holder and his wife, taking a moment from a 40th birthday party and a nice sunny day.
Egads...my baby is 40??? That makes me ancient. Maybe them asking me all the time, if I was the one who invented the wheel isn't so far off track!

This project was inspired by something I saw online and was a great place to use my hand dye fabrics, that I have hoarded for years.
Eye roll here!

 The pinwheels on the border, are from clipart that I enlarged.

Lastly, this little "whirlwind" loves getting into my fabric. We take turns making quilts on each other.
You gotta get em hooked when they are young. 

So there you have what was whirling in my head this month.

  21. I do love that quilt. The colours against the white are vibrant, so the snow background looks perfect.
    I especially like what you did with the borders.
    Yes, thank you to the quilt holders.
    How do our kids get to the age that I remember being only a few years ago?
    Your grandie girl is having so much fun. She is bound to be a quilter with your influence every day!

  22. Shoveling snow is what I missed most moving to FL from NJ. Love your version of whirls but not as much as I love your whirly girl in her current quilt.
