 Riverton, Utah          High 41 Low 30

It is a lot (for here) warmer. It is the warm ahead of the next storm. 

Poor Penny has had her jacket on every time she has gone out since her haircut and she wants to be under the covers at night a lot more than before the haircut. We went for a short walk this afternoon. there was enough wind to make it a little uncomfortable so we made it a short one. Penny is always ready to go for a walk and when it was 19 degrees I didn't feel like going. Yesterday there wasn't any wind and it was mid 30s so went went for a fairly long walk. 

We have been busy getting finished up before our trip south. We have both been busy, Cindy getting her blocks ready to make another quilt, me, busy quilting. 

The first one is one I finished last week.

This pattern is one we haven't used before. It was designed as a block, but we both like how the four blocks fit together. 

The next quilt is one we bought as a kit, probably 2 years ago. I saw it and liked the quilt they had, other than they did an overall quilt pattern on it. Cindy gave it to me to quilt and told me to do with it what I felt was best. I told her I thought an overall would not do it justice, so I played with the patterns. I think it turned out nice.

It's easier to see the different patterns by looking at the back.

Cindy did tell me that we bought extra material to make the quilt into a king size instead of the full that came with the kit. For you quilters, it took almost 10 yards for the back to do the quilting. That is a lot of material! 

I hope 2021 brings better times than 2020.

Thanks for visiting.
