Cold with a capital C!
|someone went out in their bare feet! Brrr!|
Last week, about this time we were looking at -37 degrees, hitting the lowest of -45 on Saturday morning!
Montana was the coldest place in the world those couple of days! Colder than Antarctica! When do I get a penguin?!
|how 'bout the new Pantone color of the year...Radiant Orchid, right outside on a cold day!|
While the rest of the household went into hibernation/stoke-the-woodstove mode, I got busy with the sewing machine!
That's right, I got out my Block of the Month quilt top from 2012!
My first ever BOM, by Jeni Baker at InColorOrder
(I think it is now in her pattern shop as HST Sampler)
|I made an extra block for the back. I LOVE it!|
|The Nash, ever helpful!|
The finished quilt measures 53" x 67"
I bought the fabrics at an LQS, while back in Indiana, such a treat!
My three original Fat Quarters were Nancy Halvorsen, the lighter red, green, and blue plaid.
When I went back for more, I filled in with Renee Nanneman's warm and rich brown, gold, red, blues.
Before I got the sewing machine put away, something else happened, but that is another story for another post, soon :) So much quilty fun in the cold!
