Winter Woolies II

Hello Blog Friends!

I'm happy to report that I have finally finished Winter Woolies II.  I got derailed a bit last weekend...my daughter Kristy came down with the Norovirus flu and called me in to help.  She is prone to quick dehydration when she gets these kinds of flus, and this time was no exception.  So, off to the ER we went (Denis, Kristy and me).  After 3 hours, 2 bags of IV liquid, and some IV meds, we took her back home again.  All this occurs, of course, at the wee, wee hours of the morning.  We got to bed last Sunday at 4:00 am!  Why do children always get sick in the middle of the night?  Even 39 year old ones?  LOL   Happily, I'm glad to report that she is on the mend and back to her old self again.  Another midnight crisis averted.

It took us several days to recover from our ER visit, so the completion date for this quilt was delayed a few days.  I finished it this past week.  This quilt is a disappearing nine patch block pattern, using a 10" layer cake from Maywood in their flannel Woolies line. 

This quilt was quilted in a cross hatch pattern.  I wanted to preserve its "cuddle-ability", so I didn't do much quilting on it.  Although I'm showing it to you on our queen bed, this quilt will grace the back of our sofa next winter, and will definitely come in handy here in Wisconsin on those cold winter nights.  Of course, I do realize that it is somewhat ironic that a winter quilt was finished 2 weeks after the official start of spring. 

Now it's time to clean the machine, change the needle, wash some fabric and start the next project. 

More on that next week, and thanks for visiting...
