Starburst QAL - Block Three
I think I am getting a little better at paper-piecing these blocks and I used my fabric more efficiently with less waste. That makes me happy!
It is not too late to join the QAL - just pop on over to Little Bunny Quilts. The stars are all so gorgeous and the paper-piecing patterns are being offered for free.
Last night we had a major wind storm with some rain and we lost our power at 10 pm. Apparently the wind caused a problem with a transformer and a good part of our region was blacked out. The power finally came back on at 5:15 this morning and I know the exact time because my husband had been watching TV in bed when the power went out and I was very rudely awakened by the TV suddenly blaring. Startled the you-know-what out of me!
Thankfully the temps overnight were unusually mild so we stayed nice and warm and comfortable in our house. It is just daylight now and my husband took a walk around the perimeter of the house and there doesn't appear to be any wind damage. Apparently we had wind gusts of 100 km/hr - I am so grateful for my nice safe, warm and dry home.
