Snow Day!!

It's quite unusual for us not to have snow by now, but we have had a beautiful fall. So, it finally started snowing last night and continues today. I finished my quilt Come Fly With Me a couple days ago and took pictures ...

I just had to zip out in the snow and take a few more. I was planning to go to the park today and take pictures, but that's not going to happen now! Now that winter is upon us, I'm ready to use it!
Quilt Stats:

Fabric- Kaffe Fassett Shot Cotton and Timeless Treasures Crosshatch in black and white
