Saturday I spent much of the day at the sewing machine, stitching in the ditch (along the sashing and the narrow red block trim) is done, and a bit more. Two blocks are mostly quilted, and I am working on the center block. Now I need to make some decisions on how to quilt that field of snow! Leah Day’s website to get some ideas. The falling snow is a variation of one of her designs. Still need to do a filler pattern around the outer applique shapes. I used a very light silver Rayon for the snow, a bit of glimmer. And I need to fix some of the icicles hanging from the roof.

How appropriate that the block this week is New York, although it was not picked because of Sandy, but rather to commemorate Susan B. Anthony voting in New York on the first Tuesday in November in New York in 1872. It was also the last time she would vote, not living to see the 19th amendment passed into law.
