A quilter is always a quilter

What does any self respecting quilter do when face with 2 unplanned days off work, no malls, fabric stores or resturaunts open: When the threat of danger is real?????? Why quilt of course. In between the hours spent in front of the weather channel, cleaning up the yard, boarding up the house, calming DH who was 1500 miles away, buying candles and more importantly vodka, moments of OMG what am I doing and talking to friends wondering at exactly which point we would chose to evacuate, I cut out and finished 5 pairs of pj pants, machine quilted a pre printed panel on my home machine, convinced Ms. CCCat to take her longarm out from under the layers of plastic (to protect it in case of Ike) and quilted! (Whew! Long sentance!) Together we finished my cowboy quilt (full photos once it's done done) If you look close you can see the boot and hat panto....


We, a term I use very, very loosely, also quilted a baby quilt and loaded a large donation quilt. She will finish that one this evening.

I love that vodka was one of your emergency supplies! The boot quilt motif on your quilt is darling.

Hurricane Quilting -how wonderful!

Sometimes it is nice when the rest of the world turns off and we can focus on just one thing for a bit.

So very very very glad you did not get hit with the storm!!!

Your storefront pictures are priceless - wonder what they were thinking!!
