I got one block of the Storm At Sea laid out... I didn't sew it all together, because it's best to sew the quilt together in rows. But you can get the general idea. I am very happy with it! It is exactly like I wanted it to be. The circular motion is very obvious, which is what I really, really

YAY!! Now I can go ahead and cut all my pieces, and get all my foundations copied, and get it organized to go.

Speaking of Nor'Easters, we're supposed to get 6+ inches of snow today. It's our first major snowfall! Hubby is getting the snowblower ready to go. I guess with December starting tomorrow, I really can't complain that the snow is too early! I really don't mind snow, it's the bitter, bitter cold that I cannot stand. It didn't get all that cold in Upstate NY, where I'm from. Lots of snow, yes, but not the -20 temperatures, and -40 wind chills and crap like that. That's what I hate the most about Illinois winters!

Well, I am determined to finish the quilt that's on my GrandQuilter, and get the next one loaded onto it. Tootle-oo!


  1. Your Storm at Sea block looks great!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and the comment. Your comment came in as "no-reply", but I managed to find you.

    Enjoy the Cathedral Windows book.

  2. Your block looks awesome! Thank you for the comment on my blog (http://candlelitequilter.blogspot.com) about the Jelly Maker's Cabin pattern. If you make the quilt, I would love to see a picture...I'll watch your blog for one :O)

    I hope you enjoy the snow, we are getting rain that will be freezing tonight, but I'll take 6 inches of snow any day! Take Care!
