Design Strip Twist Monday

The strip twist top is coming together nicely.  I have the top three rows sewn together...just 5 more to go!  I'm not sure what I'm calling this one, nor what I'll do with it when it's done.  I'm starting to think I might keep it for myself...selfish, I know.  :-)  I got this fabric to make a bed quilt for MOTU and me in the first place, so I guess it's not so wrong. 

I got these two sets of fabric to make a quilt for our sainted neighbors (right) and possibly another one for me to keep (left).  It's hard to explain the pattern I'm going to try, so I won't bother until it's in progress.
If all you want to see is quilts, stop here. 

This is our back yard right now.  That mound is actually a car...no joke.  Fortunately, it's not one we use frequently, but still.  Anyone out there in a warmer place need a nanny or something for the winter? 
The snow is so high that Kini doesn't have to jump up to the window anymore.  She can now simply walk up the pile outside the kitchen window and poke her nose against the glass. 
I spent 3 nights in Cambridge last week, and this was the view from my hotel room.  Pretty spectacular.
Different day, same window.  Love it.

You can put it in a pile to keep...then if something comes up, you can always decide to give it away. I think I would call your quilt Splash..I love the splash of red!
