Heat Wave

Yippee, the sun was shining today and it was almost 40 degrees.  Gave us both encouragement—yes, we are going to get out of here!  Michael plowed snow for much of the day and did a little puttering around the motorhome.

I finished up Mary’s quilt--Mary Freund's Forest View

It is a Thimbleberry pattern, Forest View—I loved the colors Mary chose and enjoyed quilting it.  Mary Freund's Forest View detail

After lunch I attached all the borders to Ellie’s quilt top and tomorrow I will get the quilt on the frame.  This is my last custom quilting job and I must say, I am ready to take a break.

Mary and Ron stopped by around 5p and picked up the quilt.  After they left we took a walk down the driveway in the almost dark—it felt so good to be out without ten layers of clothes, boots, gators, etc.  Emmi even got to go without her socks! 

Eighteen days and counting!


  1. beautiful quilt, Janna..nice work!!!

  2. The quilt is so pretty and your quilting on it is perfect. Hang in there - you will get going south soon.

  3. I hope all goes well and the snow will not stop you from getting out of there for your winter fun. It is warming up here too.

  4. We're glad you had a good Thanksgiving. And, that you are getting a little warming trend. Exciting news about getting my quilt on the frame, I dream about it every morning when I make the bed. You certainly deserve a break - you've been incredibly busy with quilt jobs!

  5. The quilt looks great! Glad to see it's warming up a bit there. We got a nice warm blast of air here today as the temperature went all the way up to 48F! Feels like summer!

  6. It's time you headed south, but leave the snow and cold behind, will you? :)

  7. Beautiful quilt, the edges and corners look perfect. I love the different patterns you used to quilt it, especially the really close pattern around the star. I forget what it's called, but I like it.
