Spinning will slow down now that I'm back to work after the holiday. I'll gear up again on the weekend.

I cut out a few more feature fabrics on my quilt. I'm now up to 50 feature fabrics. I figure the limit is 80, which was the total I used for the Daughter's quilt (see it here).  I've pressed hand hung the cut fabrics on my quilt wall.

Attic windows feature fabrics

I have a couple of ideas for more squares. I'll hit the stash first to see if I have appropriate fabric. If not, I'll have to check out the quilt stores.
