can't you just imagine a quilt named that???For the 4th,5th or 6th day the furnace is doing double duty to ward off the -20 degrees we are having. Still a -6 as I write this, but the sun is shining brightly. The siding on my little unit groans and creaks as the tempertures drop at night. It makes Ebony nervous, but when nothing terrible appears, she goes back to sleep, dreaming of warmer days and grasshoppers to catch.
I finished up the top with some of Julie's Orphan blocks( blue hourglasses across the top) yesterday. Today I am working on a scrappy flannel backing for it. It's time consuming work, using up the odd size pieces, but in the end its worth it. I feel very "green" as I cut and stitch. I think I will probably tie this one. The block layout is very irregular and would slow me down quite abit if machine quilted. I pretty much only do "in the ditch", and my Pfaff is still on the fritz. I had bought a roll of poly batt from JoAnn's back in November, so I'm all set in that department also. I think I will brave the cold today and go into town for milk, etc. I haven't been outside the house since putting out the garbage can on Monday evening. Brrrrrr...hope you are all warm and cozy with good music or film and stuff to stitch with.P.S. If you are wondering what quilt top I am talking about, pop over to the Orphan Train and check it out *VBS*.
