Brrrrrrrr it's cold here again??

Got spoiled by the 80 plus weather. Azaleas are starting to bloom, but it's been raining & cold, uggggggg!! Have had a fire going since last night & it's toasty in the family room!! I made a meatloaf too! Kept the kitchen toasty too! Plus it was yummy!!

I've seen a few people in blogger world doing straight line quilting.
So I impressed myself today. By learning how to straight line quilt on a regular sewing machine & a 1/4 inch foot!! This is my test runner made from leftover blocks!

I really like the look of your straight line quilting. I don't like the idea of it being cold there again, though. I am SICK of cold weather....and I'm thinking you are, too.

Happy Birthday! I don't think that straight line quilting appeals to me. I used to do something like it a long time ago, though
