The extreme cold (it was -24 degrees this morning) is certainly motivation to stay indoors and get stuff done.
The compass star quilt pictured was started in a class with Judy Mathieson at the Vermont Quilt Festival this past summer. I got about 2/3 of the top pieced in class and finished it at home. I quilted it this fall, and finally, yesterday I put on the binding. This is the first time I have bound a round quilt. I used bias strips from a fat quarter and it worked perfectly - I usually have great beginners luck.
The whole thing is about 30 inches across. I figure it would make a nice holiday centerpiece for a table.
