Oh, Scraps with a Storm
I took pictures on early Friday Morn as the storm had started around 9pm EST Thursday - we woke to this. And more came!! It was a heavy, wet snow as you can see it sticking to the trees in great mounds.
Which led to some of this. We just pushed/pulled enough to get things out of the lane so my brother could try to keep a path for an Emergency.
My brother plowing for a second time while I shoveled for a second time. We fought this for a third round and then the winds picked up making it a total white out and too dangerous.
We had 38" of snow, some places had more as our County was in the eye of the storm. We will be staying on the cold side so this stuff should melt off slowly. I'll take this over all the awful flooding going on along the coast.
We never lost power, but did have some brown outs and flickers. I powered a few things down (like the computer), but I did sew! A cone of thread empty - yahoo. A new one is now on the machine.
Since I had all those 4-patches made and laying in the box, I put this quilt together while waiting out the storm. This was an attempt to clear some space in my barrel system - hardly a dent; really!
This is a Temecula Quilt Co pattern for one of their 'summer scrap' sew alongs. I used 1.5", 2.5", and 4.5" squares but you could bump this up for a larger quilt using 2", 3.5", and 6.5" squares. You could add a border, but this design just says 'NO' to that - so I'm not.
