This is "basket weave" The block is done for Bobbi G as her birthday block in our swap. This one did up really quickly. I will definately be doing this one again.

This is the birthday block for Jean T. ....Nov. 24.....called Castle in the Air. This one was ok to do. I like the look of it when finished.
It is very cold this morning. Minus 41 with the wind chill. That is cold. Not sure if the buses will run for school. Temp before wind chill is minus 31. My smart car was out of the garage yesterday/overnight and it started this morning. Dave drove it to work yesterday to try it in the snow and it wasn't too bad. So he is off to Edmonton for a few days and has decided to take it. He left at 6:20 this morning.
I'm staying home again today. I don't need groceries that badly. I have to go to work tomorrow so that is soon enough. I will shop before work. There is one grocery store open till 11pm and if I need to, I will go there after work at 9:30pm
Have a good day everyone.

This block is the birthday block, very late one, that I made for Ruth E. on my quilt imagination group. I like the look of it but it took over 3 hours to make. Don't think that I will be making it again any time soon.

Happy quilting. more pictures soon.

This was outside the back door of the lodge we stayed at for our quilt retreat on Friday morning. It was very cold and we received alot of snow last week.
I arrived at the retreat about 9:30am and got to sew all day Friday, Sat. and Sun till 2pm Boy was it fun. Got alot done and learned alot too.

It's been awhile since I've posted. I seem to get busy and forget. Well , finally here is a picture of the quilt I made for my Dad.
This is the front. I put flannel on the back. I did a rag quilt. Should be warm. He is going through chemo for cancer of the esphagus.
I'm headed for a quilting retreat weekend tomorrow morning. Spent the day sorting and organizing what to take. So much to do so little time. It will be fun though.
Happy quilting, Carol
