Quilting in Front of the Fire

Today was indeed a quilting day.  A couple of ladies were working on Drunkard's Path blocks for their sampler quilts at Country Roads Quilters on Tuesday.  This reminded me that I enjoy doing these blocks with curved seams and so today I made a Corner to Corner Curve block (from Lynne Edwards' Sampler Quilt book) for one of the Global Piecers for their birthday.  I stitched the curved seams by hand and then pieced the completed squares by machine.  I hope she likes it.
I had some quilting "admin" to do.  Minutes for the CRQ Open Day meeting and a draft constitution to be written.  If we have more members we will have more monies in and out and need to be more official - so more paperwork and not of the English paper piecing type either!
I managed to do some quilting while speaking with visitors on Tuesday and now have four finished corner blocks for the next round of the wedding quilt.
The temperature never got above freezing today and is forecast to be about minus 10 tonight.  Fortunately we had a load of logs delivered this morning so quilting in front of the fire is the order of the day.


  1. Brrr, all that snow looks rather chilly. How nice to be tucked up safe and warm and doing something you love!

  2. This must be a great year for quilting, in front of the fire, if you have one. In so many parts of the world it is colder than usual and I have just seen pictures of snow in Jerusalem! However, if you want to quilt in front of the open fridge door, then I would recommend AUstralia. The weather is turning extreme.
    You have been very productive and you are as skilled with words as you are with needle and thread so it will be easy for you to do that non-English paper piecing paperwork. Have fun!

  3. Our snow is still on the ground but at least today the sun is out. It is pretty slippery walking so a good day to stay inside and quilt ... just like you!

  4. Well done on sewing in front of visitors, I always worry they'll see it like teenages texting! Keep warm
