Finally quilting......

I got busy yesterday morning and quilted the Windy City flannel quilt with a large loose meander.  It is so nice and soft after quilting.  You can see the backing fabric is also in the piecing of the top.  I cut binding from the edges that I trimmed off.

Yesterday was our first church sewing circle of the year.  We either had snow or subzero temps on the previous 4 dates we would have met.  It was in the 50s as predicted.  I stopped 3 places on the way home and was so wiped out all I did was read and knit in the evening.

I love flannel quilts. They are my go to gift quilt when someone is ill. It is suppose to get to 56 here today and then tomorrow the hammer drops. I will have to get outside and try and soak in the warmth while it is here.

It sounds like it was a fun and exhausting day out for you. Yeah for 50* finally!

This quilt definitely looks very soft, cuddly, and inviting! How appropriate after the winter your region has had! I was finally able to go to our Quilts of Valor, Eastern Missouri meeting yesterday after all of the bad weather we have had!

Windy City even photographs 'nice and soft'. (*._,*)

My sister told me the weather kids predicted a snow storm tonight. 2 -6 " maybe. She said, she is hoping it will happen because she wants to see it break all history making records ! (*._,*)
