Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin : All the folks on my gardening and homesteading lists are talking about starting their seeds. And getting out into the gardens. And, and, and... <insert whine>. Not us here. Nope, the snow keeps on coming. As the weather does get a tad bit warmer, (still quite a bit below freezing), more snow comes. As the sun shines a bit higher in the sky every day, more snow comes. And as the light stays a bit longer every day, more snow comes. Sigh .....

You may have noticed that we were down from Friday until Monday. HUGE upgrades, updates and even HUGER (is that even a word?) frustration. But it's all done now.

And yes, I'm going to put a big pot of soup on the woodstove and let it simmer all day. Dinner's at 6.


Sisters Common Threads and March themed patterns are featured this week.

Q: How do you piece batting together to make a long strip? Do you zigzag it together flat or use a seam?
