The Alliance for American Quilts has announced a major milestone by posting a private collection on their Quilt Index for the first time. About 80 quilts made by Hungarian immigrant Mary Gasperik. This collection provides a rare chance to observe one quiltmaker's near-total output as she advanced from a novice quilter to a prizewinning quilt designer.
The entire collection can be viewed here.

On a personal note......we've just experience our 10th snow.......really a blizzard. Okay, UNCLE.....we are heading back to WI, where at least folks know how to handle winter!! Literally, towns close up here when it snows.....restaurants and all! Amazing.....
