MMRR, QUBM and WOBBOW and snow

Lots of abbreviations here!! :-)
Here's a peek at the QUBM- Quilt you be mine Round robin
It's the last month, so we should all have our tops back before Valentine's
and Modern Mystery Round Robin started this month too
here's my block, a winding ways block

And here's the Bible BOW
how Delilah tricked Samson into telling her where he got his strength from- his hair
so the little triangles around the edges I picked to look like hair...
The center has the hanging clothes line, reminded me of the chains when Samson was chained to the pillars. To have it be more feminine and about Delilah, I picked the floral fabric.

The directions recommended foundation piecing, but since my block is 8" the tiny triangles were pretty easy to sew, by sewing 1 1/2" squares together diagonally and then trimming, though the long border strips got a little wonky, once they were sewn to the center, it kind of straightened out.

and we had snow friday- the schools had half a day- 11.30 but then it started snowing at 10, so they let out at 10.30, what a waste!
today they had a 2hr delay because it was freezing rain during the night.

Does anyone have some ideas for a T shirt quilt BTW??

My grandson wants to see snow so badly. But that's a rare sight in south LA. I just started a tee shirt quilt over the weekend and I'm looking for tips also

You have so many things going on. Does it make your head spin?
We had freezing rain last week for the first time in 20 years. No fun on the road--or sidewalk. Yesterday we had a foot of snow dumped on us. Quite a winter!
I made one t-shirt quilt a couple of years ago. I like the result. You can find it on my blog if you just put T-shirt quilt in the search.
