Quilters Prepare for Storm


Quilters on the East Coast of the US are preparing for several days of non-stop quilting! 
Storm supplies: Fabric and thread? Check. Food and water? Check. Generator for basics like heat and sewing machine? Check. Tea and cookies? Check. I'm ready.

This NOAA satellite photo taken 2 days ago shows that we won't be going anywhere soon. Schools are already cancelled for Monday and Tuesday. That's the spirit.

I'm feeling like a big scrap quilt. How about you? Check back for Storm/Quilt updates.

Same here in NJ. I'll be happy as long we don't lose power for an extended period of time. Oh, and I hope our basement doesn't flood. But my pins and needles are ready!

I put bindings on 5 quilts yesterday and today to get ready for lots of hand sewing if we lose power..
hoping it won't be as bad as they are saying...

I'm ready here north of Baltimore! I have an apple pie baking now, the generator prepped and the extension cords ready!

I'm set in NJ. Picked up a couple new fabrics this morning for my storm preparations. Food, water, sewing stuff... check. Ready and waiting for the direct hit here.

I'm in my sewing room now (in Shrewsbury, MA) working on a couple of UFOs. Free day off from work and still have power - what could be better than that.
