We had almost 8 weeks of temperatures where it did not go above freezing....at all! Just constant, sub-freezing temperatures all the time, not to mention the wind chill. Brrrr! I think we bottomed out at -27F with straight temperature. We did have one day earlier this week where it was 37 and it felt absolutely wonderful! :c)
I did finally get the center section of the Mariner's Compass quilt fully quilted. I still have to do the corners and in the white section of the pieced border, but I'm making progress. Here's almost a full view of the quilt:
A little bit more of a close-up so you can see the pebble quilting.
And getting right down at the quilt level to see the stitching and the texture it creates...
I'm really digging the texture this quilt has so far. I've started on one of the corners and it is almost quilted and the design really pops out, but those photos are for another day (and hopefully not a month from now).
