I think this is the longest I’ve ever spent working on a quilt. Lesson for next year: Don’t start a quilt in November, Plaid Friday and Christmas orders will get in the way.
But it was actually really nice to have this quilt to come back to after my staycation. A good way to ease me back into work. And I was ready for it, ready to get back into the studio and ready to finish up the quilt. Not that I got it all done, but I’m almost there. Now I just have to tack it. I was moving around a lot putting the quilt together so I kept warm, but tomorrow it’s supposed to be 16 below. I won’t be crawling around on the floor (what I do when putting the backing and batting together) which is uninsulated and drafty, but the snow is supposed to go on till tomorrow night. So, no sun and below zero temps, I just don’t know if my studio will warm up enough to work in. I’ll be happy if I can get a few hours in before my fingers refuse to work anymore.
