Winter storm warning and box kite blocks

We had a doozey of a winter storm yesterday, cold wind and snow -28. So far today it is overcast and cold but they keep telling us we are under a winter storm warning. Bring it on, comfy and cozy in my studio. A good time to settle in and get some projects done.
I finished the box kite block quilt. This is one of Bonnie Hunter's blocks it was in the May/June 14 Quiltmaker magazine. I am quite pleased with it. So this is my third quilt made from scrappy stash this year. I'm on a roll.
I worked hart to get the darks and medium/lights to run the opposite way. I think I succeeded. I still have a lot of 2 1/2" strips left, as I hardly made a dent in the box full.
Here is a finish too , I call it "Celestial Reflections", I did purchase some fabric for this one. The inspiration came from  Van Gough's painting" Starry Night Over the Rhone"
The pattern will be available soon.  
OH MY, I forgot one other important finish. I designed a quilt called
Geese in the Garden, it is on my Patterns For Sale Page. Well, as I love wool, I also did it in Wool. Here is the wool version, pattern available soon. If you are interested let me know, and I will get it written up sooner :)
Hope you are all having a wonderful sewing day :) 
Thanks for stopping by, if you feel inclined I would be pleased if you left a comment.
