I didn't realize I had been absent so long until I finally sat down and checked today. I've been here plugging along at home and at work so here's what's up.
We have had an incredible amount of snow and cold here this winter but today it's in the high 50's. I went to the store without a coat on-epic! Tomorrow it's supposed to be cold and wintery again. New England weather is like that. Here's what my husband was doing a couple of weeks ago.
We had an incredible amount of snow on the roof and there had been a number of roof collapses in NH so he got up there and shoveled. Scares the you know what out of me when he does this.
I also have finished the Blue Star quilt I had made. I love scrap quilts and this is one of my favorites. There are a lot of different fabrics in here which is why I love scrap quilts. I think it gives quilts a completely different look than one made with a fabric collection that has 40 fabrics, many of them pattern repeats, in them.
I even did a scrappy backing with leftover fabrics and orphan blocks. The star blocks you see were ones I cut wrong but I put them together anyway and they lok fine back here.
Here's a better closeup of the quilting.
I even did a scrappy binding. Whenever I make a quilt and have left over binding I throw the extra into a hat box I have. So I got the box out and pulled all the blues and put together a binding. I love the way it looks on this quilt.
So I have no idea what's next. Probably not much as I am having shoulder problems and am scheduled to have some surgery on it March 4th. Not looking forward to that but it needs doing. It's bad when the parts start failing!
