Working on a new southwest quilt pattern....

Some of you will remember this quilt from last winter. It's the one I made for my BIL for his house down here in Arizona. I've had a few reqests to make this into a pattern and so that's my current project. I didn't keep all my notes so I'm remeasuring and making new ones. PLUS Al would like one of these for himself... big surprise, huh?... I think he'd take one of every "guy" quilt I make..LOL. I'm happy he loves quilts as much as I do but pretty soon he's going to have a larger collection than ME! The weather outside is COLD and that's coming from someone from Michigan! It's a high of 47 today... but right now with windchill it feels like 18 degrees. Could have gotten that stuff at home! Tomorrow is looking much better... will be back into the high 50's/low 60's. I really can't complain (even though I am..lol) because of what is hitting the rest of the country. Hope all of you are staying warm and have electricity. Lisa said school was cancelled (just what she was hoping for) so she can stay in and keep warm. Take your vitamins, Lisa (she caught a cold) and drink plenty of water/juice.
Al and I are headed out to some antique stores in a bit. I love to wander around them seeing what I can find. I mostly look for Fiesta and quilt/sewing stuff but I also like to nose around old books. It reminds me of Grandma's attic... used to go up there and find old Bobsey Twin books and other treasures. It was ice cold in the winter, hot as h_ _l in the summer but sure I loved it up there. Well, Al is pacing... he wants to GOOOOOOO....

I'll see if I can put one together. The quilt belongs to my brother-in-law now and resides in AZ. Since we live in MI I dont have it to look at but I remember most of what I did, if not the exact sizes.
