Wendy's Longarm Quilting, Thunder Bay, Ontario

Mid October

We have been incredibly spoiled this fall with warm days. A couple of days ago the high was actually 20C which is unusual for this time of year in this area. Now that the October full moon has passed the colder air seems to be upon us at least it sure feels like it this morning! It’s -4C with a feels like -8C…

Liam has been with us this week and I remind him that in a month or two those temperatures will seem warm! Still it sure makes it hard to crawl out of a warm bed in the morning and we will very soon be turning on the furnace.

We have been busy around here getting ready for winter. The gardens are empty and tilled, the pool is covered and parts stored away. It is time to give in and bring the boots in from the shed and tuck away the summer shoes.

Thankfully my quilting keeps me warm and happy. My customer quilts delight me. I love the transformation from top to quilt!

I continue to work away on my Longtime Gone quilt. The most recent block is trip around the world. It was laid out for weeks before I finally sat down and sewed.

This block consists of 121 1.5” squares. I have fun choosing different backgrounds for these blocks.

  1. That’s a great idea for a scrap quilt. I have a ton of 2×2 inch squares left over from my scrap quilt. Been wondering what to do with them. I think I found the answer! I love the center piece, and how everything else is a supporting cast, albeit with their own unique roles.
