Best laid plans

Oh, yes, I had the best laid plans.   I was going to finish the lamb quilt and start the quilting on the machine.   However, without warning, we had a major windstorm .   Really major and we were without power for 2 days.  I spent much of the last two days tending the fire, cooking here, and sitting in front of it.  We were so thankful when power returned.  We were technically okay and  could have survived longer, just too spoiled to want to camp in the middle of winter.  But now we have POWER and are very thankful, having just relearned how wonderful it is.


So today, I finished the front of this quilt which is now waiting for quilting, backing and binding.  It was done on the embroidery machine, which is a technique useful for someone who doesn’t really know how to quilt, but I found it more cumbersome.

When I make this quilt again, I will embroider the pieces flat and put them together and then quilt it.  I think it makes a cute baby quilt.  It measures 38 x 42″.

    I’m so thankful for our woodstove! If our power were to go out, it’s the only way to heat our house, and possibly cook (we have a gas stove, but it’s upstairs from the woodstove, and I can’t cook in the dark).
    So glad to hear that your power is back!
    That’s a cute quilt, but I can imagine that the process of recreating it would be more work than it needs to be!
