Some Progress and Still Hoping for a Snow Day

Well I finally finished sewing the rows together for my Mardi Gras quilt (aka Orange Crush mystery quilt). This is a quick photo; my quilter-holder-upper was impatient. I really like it! I need to go to Melisa's and get some advise for borders. I'm thinking of a thin inner border (something that "pops" maybe a light, bright green?) and an outer border.
I also finished the February block for the Little Quilts BOM. I can't wait for the next one to show up in the mail! I am really hoping that it gets icy out and they cancel work and the area schools--all the quilters want a snow day!!!!!!

I just got the call that our school is closed tomorrow! Calling it the night before seldom happens. Planning to sew the day away.

I love your Mardi Gras Quilt! And the pictures of snow and your poor cat hiding away from it. Do I see a daffodil underneath a bed of snow? So spring is also on its way with you (O:

Great job on the Mardi Gras quilt...not an bit of orange in sight! Wish I would've thought of that! I am still working away on mine and hoping to quilt the borders this weekend.
