Snow in the Valley?

This is the street I live on, and these trees are Almond trees in bloom. The weather is crazy and we are supposed to be getting snow this evening. Almond prices will be expensive next year because there may not be a crop. Sad for the farmers.

Recent finish

Last year I did the Fat Quart Shop BOM. These blocks were the result. I do love them. I have to admit I can't remember the line of fabric. sorry. I ended up just putting them together an easy way. And using up as much of the left over fabric as I could.
These pictures were taken yesterday afternoon about 4 pm and there wasn't to many places I could find that had sun. So here is a close up of the shady area.
And here is the back. I love the back. I used up the left over hst's.

Started hand quilting

This block was block one of a BOM by Material Obsession last year. It is completely hand pieced. One block was all I was into. That was work and I wasn't up to the challenge. So I decided to hand quilt it and make it into a pillow top. Stay tuned to see the final pillow.

Changing the finished product

I like this scrap quilt but it just doesn't seem finished.
So I added a border and I like it much better. Now it goes in the pile to get quilted.
