Here's the view from the shelter of my garage at 10 p.m.

By Tuesday morning the storm had blown over. Chicago had no measurable snow in January and February -- then 14" in this one March storm!
The Southport Quilters, the Kenosha guild, have an annual quilt exhibit at the Kenosha Public Museum. I went on Saturday and enjoyed seeing the 50 or so quilts on display. I knew several people there so I spent as much time chatting as admiring.
In my studio this week:
I finished the table runner for the GFWC-IL convention. Nice to have something done two months in advance.
My new project is a wallhanging for a P.E.O. chapter sister who is moving out of state in a couple of months. The pattern is from "Hearts Aplenty," a book by Lynda Milligan and Nancy Smith. It's tricky because the only clues to the placement of the applique pieces are this color photo and a *smaller* black-and-white photo. Neither is very helpful. I'm improvising!
As shown, the piece is 42 x 54. I'm going to make a smaller border.
Daisies are the P.E.O. flower.

P.S. I indulged at Quilt Play -- a yard on clearance and batik remnants. 5 yards, $37.
