First flimsy of 2016

Of course it's a 2/3 size Allietare.

I plan to start basting it tomorrow.  It reminds me of some of the colors in the pictures I've seen of Siena's Palio race--the banners and the costumes.

In other news, it seems like winter has finally come to us.  Overnight snow and sudden chilly temps and wind gusts.  And a bigger storm brewing for the weekend. Great time of year to be quilting!

That is beautiful! You're right about the colors, too. I'm amazed - only halfway through the month, and a quilt top ready to go. It's a keeper, I hope. It would brighten any room.

Stalled out at the basting step......but I am hoping that the blizzard will force me to focus on this tomorrow.
