Today’s Quilty 365 circle marks my 100th block. I am a great “starter” of projects, but rarely do I stick with something for this long. I am what my friend calls a “creative flea”, jumping from one thing to another so thanks Audrey for giving me the initiative to keep going. Only 265 more!
I have a funny weather story as I know a lot of us have been in the deep freeze these past few days. I took Thursday and Friday off with my friend to visit her cousin in southern NH. We had a blast! When we returned to the house and turned on the news, (she gets the local Boston stations) I was amazed at how they focused so much attention on the weather. It seemed the main focus of the news was the “dangerously cold” temperatures and that you should remain inside if possible. I don’t watch the weather very often so when I got home I decided to see what our local stations were saying. Yup, just as I thought, they were saying “it’ll be pretty cold today so be sure to dress appropriately when you are out on the trails”! It was 11 below zero at my house this morning. I love living in Maine!
That being said, I took the Boston station’s warning this weekend and stayed inside to quilt! One of our quilt guild’s co-president’s asked us to make a 6” block. She didn’t say why, simply make your favorite 6” block and write the name of it and our name on the back. This is mine. I love the “Love Apple” block. So simply and pretty.
I also washed and pressed all the goodies my friend and I bought at the fabric store. And “finally” started the reproduction quilt for an exhibition at our state show this summer. More on that later. Gotta run! Have a super quilty day.
