snow day

Thank you all for your sweet comments on my grandma's post yesterday. It was heartwarming to read each of your comments. I'm sorry that I didn't reply to you individually, I've been at a loss for words. 

We woke up to quite the Spring snow storm. I'm pretty sure I have swept a good 6 inches off of my car. 

Since the snow botched all my other plans for today, my girl thought it would be a good idea to go through all the bolts of fabric and pick out her favorites. So far she's picked about a dozen from Cotton + Steels Basics. I cut a strip from each bolt, which I've been instructed is going to be a new quilt for her, and she's going to help with sewing.

Her ambition makes me smile.
I also love the lime and turquoise bits she mixed in with the pinks, purples and corals.

I wonder what she has in mind for her quilt ...


  1. That's adorable!! I hope you'll post the finished product when you ladies are done! :)
    Also, Snow? D: Ugh!! Where abouts do you live? (East, west, central, etc?)

    1. Will definitely post pictures of her quilt -- just have to figure it out first :)
      I live in Northern Utah, Salt Lake City. The snow usually stops in March, but also not uncommon for snow in April - mostly in the mountains at that point.

  2. I love it when children pick out fabrics for their own quilt! It makes it so individual. My grandson actually LIKES to go fabric shopping with me!


I love getting your comments. I try my best to reply to each one.
However, if you are a no-reply blogger, I will not be able to respond.
Thanks, and have a great day!
