Stormy Weather

I made it to my sewing room last night around 7. The red, white, and blue top (Bonnie Hunter's Ohio Stars and Rails) is pieced.

I didn't  start on the borders because I stopped to start the borders on the flag quilt. I added one border that is just a 2 inch pieced border using some of the blues in the quilt. I plan to add an off-white border and then a dark blue to complete it.

It was storming a little last night so I decided to sew through it. My sewing room is downstairs but the back part of the downstairs is underground. (Not sure if that makes sense to you.)  I am safer down there than upstairs. So I just sewed away and ignored the wind and lightning.)

Have a great day!

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. I love them both Vivian, but especially the top one! I can't wait to see these quilted!

    I always unplug my machines when it storms (actually, anytime I'm not using them) even though they are all plugged into UPS systems.

  2. I love both of them too! You are really making me want to get a patriotic quilt started.

  3. I never thought to unplug my machines. I know what you mean about being in the lower part of the house - it is safer from the storms - which in my opinion have gotten worse in the past 5 years or so - I wonder why that is.

    You will have plenty to quilt soon, the tops are great.

  4. Soon you will have two more lovely quilts.

  5. My goodness Vivian - you have been so busy - it all looks fantastic!
